On 6th April, my daughter, two sons and I are getting on a plane to join my husband in Sydney. Our tickets are one-way. We’re leaving Britain behind for all kinds of reasons—not least because, as one British expat friend recently put it: “In Australia, no one can box you into a corner unless you want to be boxed into that corner. That’s just not the case in Britain.”
She has a point. Look at the people who run the two countries. In Australia, it’s an array of tough women whose rise has not been down to bloodlines or schooling, but to grit and determination.
