    George we here in Australia are been bombarded about climate change. The younger ones are brain washed about this.
    George I am inundated with this news from Dublin expats. Connor McGregor the Irish Dublin Boxer has almost completed 8 three bedroom houses in Dublin for homeless people currently living in hotels around the Irish Capital. This is such a great opportunity for other Irish millionaires to follow suite. Goodness knows we get quite a few of them coming to the Gold Coast and charging enormous prices for the concerts. Thought you and your readers would like this story.

    George we just had our election results. Delighted Liberals got in again.
    All Labour talked about was climate change. Hoping they would get the younger vote. It was so tiring watching this party going on and on about Climate change. And about retires investments. So a good result had by all my expats.
