    This system is already in place - for at least 10 years

    And how are driving license stats, they also use “Australian-like” points based system, does it mean people just get waved through?

    Only for Non-EU applicants though, due to FoM.

    Boris means extending it to include EU applicants...

    So if the UK adopts the Australian immigration system would mean net migration will double.

    Australian are letting migrants in like there's no tomorrow.
