Points system for immigrants
! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.
The Home Office is to introduce a system of points for immigration from next year.
Under the scheme, highly skilled would-be immigrants would get enough points to be allowed to come into the country unsponsored. Those without useful skills will still be allowed into the country but will need a sponsor.
This won’t, of course, apply to EU citizens so the British government will still be powerless to prevent entire villages of unskilled Polish immigrants coming into the country.
