    Default Border controls

    “ Net migration targets have been abandoned by the Government as it ditches the £35,800 salary cap for migrants to be allowed to settle in the UK.

    The new rules for Boris Johnson’s points-based immigration system demolish the last vestiges of Theresa May’s attempts to reduce net migration to tens of thousands.

    Skilled migrants will no longer be required to earn £35,800 to be able to settle in the UK but instead the cap will be lowered to £25,600 under the rules which were quietly slipped out on Thursday and take effect on December 1.

    Unskilled migrants on salaries of just £20,480 but with enough points to be allowed into the UK to plug gaps in shortage jobs will also be entitled to settle in Britain after six years and become citizens.”

    The NHS needs nurses, junior doctors and lab scientists lus the UK needs research scientists and engineers.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Theresa May's awful immigration policies deserve to be binned. I'm more interested in why it's taken so long. Priti Patel isn't exactly the immigrant's friend either so I suspect it wasn't wholly her idea.

    Yes immigration ought to be controlled but there's way better methods of achieving it.

    Stamps in passports again! Awesome, I miss those. What's the point of all those pages if no-one stamps them any more.

    You want stamps, go to Africa. Some of the border control guys there love a stamping machine .... crossing from Zambia to Botswana we must have had 4 different men stamp our passports, each one had their own little stamper and it was their job alone to press it. I love a good passport stamp

    I have a few, as you say, non-EU. Hong Kong just gave slips of paper but I glued them in. Nothing from Australia, the gits. I have UAE, Turkey, Oman, Cape Verde, Singapore, New Zealand, Cuba, Ukraine.
