Britain’s Post-Brexit, ’70-Point’ Immigration Policy — NOT To My Liking.

Nope, nope — I am fine, thank you. I became a full citizen, with unrestricted right-of-residence in 1983. But, to be fair, that does have a bearing on why I am NOT happy with this, ‘you must score at least 70-points to qualify’, post-Brexit immigration policy.

I was all in favor of Brexit — as was well known. Part of my rationale was to stop any ‘riff-raff’ from Europe having automatic rights to live and work in my beloved Britain.

So, I, in general, aren’t totally opposed to a MERIT-BASED immigration policy. I got my Green Card on merit — possessing skills not (then) readily available in the U.S.

My GRIPE has to do with my British Commonwealth.

This immigration policy makes NO exceptions for those from the Commonwealth. That is BLOODY WRONG.

In the old days, and I am now talkings the 1950s, 60s & 70s, the British immigration policy was heavily weighed in favor of us from the Commonwealth. And that is how it should be. IF you love and play cricket you get preferential treatment. Period.

I have an easy fix. Keep the 70-point system, but automatically give anyone from the Commonwealth 20-points, right-up-front. I will be OK with that.

What do YOU think?
