Immigrating to the UK

Coldest it's been since we moved here
 
Frek cold outside today. Need to put up the Xmas lights outside. Going to freeze my ass off.

I’m looking forward to Christmas next year. Europeans just do Christmas better than South Africans. It’s too hot here this time of year to make it feel like Christmas.

I had to do some long distance driving yesterday, car was saying it was -4 as well when I left. Apparently it's even colder today but it's weekend and I'm still in bed XD

Yeah, just about every house puts lights up. Looks really nice at night. We have a house down the road that spends 2 weeks putting lights up every year. Has thousands and thousands of lights, with a giant Santa on the roof and the scenery changes every year.

Tons of people stop to take photos and they ask for a small donation (If you can) which they collect for charity.

You just don't get that sort of vibe here in SA.

Remember the “Christmas House” down the road from my mom’s place in Bedfordview. People would queue around the block every December to try and get a look.
 
Sitting on Portsmouth high street, the salvation army band playing Christmas carols (badly)... Lekker Xmas vibes.

Their lips must be freezing to the instruments!
 
OK which of you guys is this

Hahahaha! Reminds me of this guy I was in Matric with: could see the snow on top of the Helderberg, we’d all be standing on the field during break wearing as many clothes as the uniform would allow, still freezing our arses off, and he’d walk up wearing the summer uniform shirt.

First question was always “so how much OBS have you had?”
 
I remember commenting a couple of years ago that rules were only going to get tougher.


I heard them debating this on bbc4 on the radio the other evening.

I do find the logic of 'charge them more for the visa too prove they can fund themselves' a little weird and perhaps disingenuous to a point of a money making scheme from Gov.

I'm not impacted (I think ? Ancestral Visa) but it does seem there will be clamping down on visas even though there seems to be skill shortages in some industries.

It’s just the Tories trying to pander to xenophobic voters, the same one’s they managed to get to vote for them because of “get brexit done”. The only problem is too many centrist voters who would vote Tory still won’t.

Unfortunately once the law is changed it takes a lot for a successor govt to change it back.
