Hi everyone,

Now this is a genuine question so excuse me if I am missing something here... but I see the arguments about immigration and I don't understand why we don't have a points system like Australia? What is the down side to implementing it? That way the people that come to the UK are contributing something to our society and surely people can't take up a problem with that.

Thoughts? Am I missing the point here?

I agree. The points system used by countries with sensible immigration policies like Australia, Canada, New Zealand is the way to go.

There's only one country with more stupid policies than the UK, and that's the US. They don't have a points system to select qualified individuals that the country actually needs - the run a ****ing lottery to give out 50,000 green cards to random people, regardless of education, health, language ability, economic resources etc. The Americans are on drugs.
