    Default Skills shortage

    Foreign workers: skills wanted v skills outlawed - in pictures - Telegraph

    Evidently Britain needs coal miners, we don't have any, so they are on the skills list for work permits.



    Got to laugh.
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    So, we've got enough biology teachers, vets, ortopists (?), electricity workers and orchestral musicians.

    In the comments link to this story:

    The secret immigration policy they tried to hide | Talking Politics - Yahoo!


    and interesting info in the comments of that story:

    This happens all over the World . My son jumped through hoops and paid good money to get an Australian visa. But when he got there all the jobs were taken up by Koreans brought in on special visas and working for half the normal wage rate. Where ever you go you will be screwed by big corporations. Murdoch is not the only Business man spending time in Downing street Dictating policy.

    Yep, other countries seem to be a little more interested in the interests of their own people rather than the companies in which the politicians will be taking positions when they leave politics.

    Within the supposedly 'capped' UK points based system for labour migration, the government has ensured that the categories relevant to trade commitments have no numerical limits.
    That's true, it was one of the first things Dave did, but spun in a way that sounded as if he was setting immigration limits. He's the spawn of Blair indeed.

    One for DimPrawn:
    and similarly Ukip, which has two members on the INTA but actually supports the concept of temporary labour from outside the EU being brought in by transnational corporations.
    And yet people still vote for these people, of whichever party, every 5 years.
