Young Olney to Australia! And back?

Brits leaving for downunder
Ben is leaving us today for a year long working holiday in Australia. Sad for us. Happy for him!
I’m sure many young people in UK are checking out jobs in Australia. This is an inevitable upshot of the recession. Actually, I think it would be a good thing to upgrade the agreement with Australia that allows young people from Britain to work temporarily there and young Aussies to work temporarily here.
Swap young people during the recession
I think we should go further and set quotas to swap young people. We should even provide an year return ticket!
Build a resilient young generation
Experience abroad broadens the mind, expands our skills, deepens our resilience, and rekindles hope. We will be stronger country for it. Our future at the end of recession may depend upon a better reservoir not just of skill but of character (selfish, aren’t I?).
I’ll miss Ben. He’s been with MuchAdo Cafe in Olney since it opened a year ago. I understand he began his career as a schoolyard at the Courtyard Brasserie tucked away in Rose Court off Market Place. He went off to Australia, came back, and is now associated with a very successful start-up with the most delectable food and friendly adaptable stylish service. MuchAdo have a daily blackboard menu with food from the delicatessen next door and they happily adjust the dishes to your taste. They’ll also send you home with delicacies too and the recipes to prepare something special.
Bon Voyage, Ben! Enjoy the sun and sand. And be back soon! We’ll be waiting for you.
