Lena BS: Cathy Freeman sticks it to Perec! (32) RE: BS: Cathy Freeman sticks it to Perec! 28 Sep 00

For Heaven's sake,not in the morning when I'm struggling to keep as good mood up.To say it blankly,Australia is a lovely country,but you try and live here if you're not'proudly Australia'.Indeed I'm italian,gladly italian.and because I was born there,I'm never going to be allowed to live in Australia.I'm not going to be allowed to live with my australian citizen father because I'm over eighteen.If I'm sick,i'm not elegible for any medical assisrtance unless I pay(a lot).And You'll say:well,fair enough,you're not australian,what do you espect?!Well,I pay much more taxes than any average australian.Taxes I take off from any job people is so generous to offer me.Because not being a resident.I'm allowed to work thrre months at a time,after which period I have to be fired by law.And of course no boss wants you for just three months.And if a boss wants you,well,by law you can't work more than twenty hours a week.Of course you'll never find a proper job,but only something paying you around AU$ 10 an hour.So,in the end,if you're lucky you can get AU$ 200 a week...take off AU$ 60 for survive with 140 $ a week,taking off 100 for the rent,than you just have enough money to eat(if you can gamble with GST and stuff),pay bills,and pray to not get sick.I've been going on like this for nearly one year now.I'll soon (a few months)have to leave again my father and sister,and go back to Europe.I might miss Australia then...but not being in Australia like this.Which was the only way.Call me a proud european ,thank you very much.At least our consideration for education and erudition is better and less elitarian,and I'll be able to go to UNI back there.

Apart from this angry stuff,the funny new I was given the other day is that there is some Optus pay Channel showing the flame 24 hours a day.You pay for sitting there whatching the Olypmic flame for hours!!!!!Unbelievable...

Besides,the other
