Keiren My reply is not concerning your valued insight into the crime figures in Woodvale but the fact you feel that the prices are hyped due to elite and snobby poms! I do wonder how you are privvy to such information that ALL the people buying in Woodvale are Poms? I rent a house in Woodvale, we are here because the location suited us for ease of public transport to the city and the fact that it was the nicest rental house we saw given the fact that we have two dogs. Since living here we have had several new neighbours move here but funnily enough none of them are Poms! Perhaps you need to do a few fact finding missions before posting your subjective opinions on here and spare a though for the people outside Australia who are desperately trying to get in to this wonderful country. I take no offence by your remarks as anyone who has an ounce of common sense can make their own minds up without taking note of your comments but I do think that maybe you should get some therapy for that rather large 'chip' you carry on your shoulder!

Jane, Just to put you right, I have no chip on my shoulder, just stating what I see and hear. If you can afford to live in Woodvale, good on yer, and that goes to anyone else. Just because I make a comment that isn't 'pleasing to the ear' to any individual who may or may not take offence, does not mean I have a problem. More likely, the recipitent has. quote: 'Perhaps you need to do a few fact finding missions before posting your subjective opinions on here and spare a though for the people outside Australia who are desperately trying to get in to this wonderful country.' The majority of my posts ARE based on factual information, otherwise I wouldn't post them - what would be the point? I always spare a thought for those coming over here, and often do as much as I can for those who bother to contact me prior to coming, as I know several on this forum will confirm. And I will stand by what I say in saying that Woodvale does have a very large number of poms who settled there when the exchange rates where very high and they made a mint off their UK properties. AND I don't have a problem with it. There you go...... KIEREN
