Points Based System

In Uncategorized on April 19, 2011 by grahamharrowell

I see that a cricketer managed to evade the provisions of the new points based system designed to “cap” non-EU immigration by taking advantage of a provision relating to establishing a business. The government immediately moved to change the rules (how much did that cost) to close the “loophole”. Since when have cricketers been “swamping” the country? Once again it’s those who follow the lawful route to come here who will be penalised.

On that topic I read in the April edition of the Russian magazine SNOB an article about how foreign students in the UK perform better than the home grown variety who are complaining about having to pay fees. Foreign students are accustomed to paying and wonder what all the fuss is about. The article also complains about the ordeal that Russians have to go through to get a student visa, yet still they think it’s worth it. It’s about to get a whole lot worse thanks to Vince Cable and Theresa May.
