Get out of the Inner West !

The SMH tells me everyone still living there is failing the happiness test. Well that piece of info was quite useful actually, some support for my vague notion to settle somewhere near a beach..
"A new survey that compares the wellbeing of people in all 150 federal electorates reveals the safe Labor seat of Grayndler, covering Annandale, Leichhardt, Petersham, Newtown, Marrickville and Summer Hill, tops the national list for all-round unhappiness."

"The survey found that the electorate of Richmond in northern NSW, also held by Labor, is the happiest in NSW and second happiest in Australia, even though it has a much higher poverty rate and much lower average income than Grayndler.

"Home to Tweed Heads, Byron Bay, Murwillumbah and Mullumbimby, the seat
has one of the highest proportions of elderly people, as well as middle-aged sea-changers and younger people pursuing an alternative lifestyle."

Awwww - it's not that bad here!! They haven't disclosed what proportion of survey participants were slaving to pay for a $500,000 mortgage - the rest of us are fine, thanks, and very happy with the proximity of good food and coffee outlets in teh area!!
(but beach would be nicer...)
