My frie ds daughter had a third child not born in Oz where the rest of them
had emigrated. Its takrn a while to sort the paperwork and the child still
cant go to school.. We are not alone in our immigration/benefits
legislation, it seems.
My daughter's friend, while wandering the globe for a bit after university,
met and took up with a young Dutch chap with a sailing boat. He was
offering sailing holidays in the Pacific - the punters were taught to crew
the boat and paid for the privileged, d's friend fed them, it worked well
for a while. Two boys later they thought they'd better spend some time on
land so the boys could get some formal education and the boat some repairs
and settled in New Zealand. D's friend could do paid work because of her
British passport but the Dutchman couldn't get a working visa.
They then lived in Cornwall for a while but the boys didn't like the
climate, or the school, or the shoes they had to wear so they didn't stay
long. I think they are back in the Pacific - must enquire.
