Theresa May

Prime Minister Theresa May has said that Britain is introducing a migration policy that ends free movement allowing only skilled workers from various parts of the world.

She stated this in a tweet on Tuesday, writing:

We’re introducing a new skills-based immigration system that ends free movement. So that for the first time in decades, this country will control and choose who we want to come here. A system that looks across the globe and attracts people with the skills we need.

The PM, according to BBC, has also promised that the European Union will not be given preferential treatment after #Brexit.

“The new skills-based system will make sure low-skilled immigration is brought down and set the UK on the path to reduce immigration to sustainable levels, as we promised,” May was quoted as saying.

    Cool! God answers prayers! Dancing shaku shaku for this news! Who Canada and America help? Bloody racist countries! I am glad I schooled in the U.S. though, but very onerous place to raise kids! After my business in Nigeria is properly put in place , moving back to the UK, which is the financial hub of the world, as far as I am concerned! Thank you Jesus !

      Seems you don’t understand the dynamics of the racism that occurs in the UK. I laugh in Spanish.

      Elle, abegi let me join in the laughter but in Wazobian…LOL!

      Apart from the social dynamics of racism, many do not understand the import of this so-called skills-based immigration policy and of course nobody can really predict the impact of Brexit (immediate and long-term) on the UK and its markets. Nonetheless, the greatest import of this policy will be on EU citizens who presently have an unencumbered right of immigration into the UK and for refugees/asylum seekers, etc.. For everyone else, nothing will change because the UK has had skill-based, UK-citizens-first, immigration system for well over the past decade.

      Abi! At least, most of the time, you can see racism in North America clearly enough to complain about it and be listened to! Unfortunately not the case in the UK and Europe in general. We are not wanted there period!

      Instead of you to work on making your country better, you are busy dancing shaku shaku because of another.

      Help me tell them oh….As someone who’s lived in the Uk for over 19years…& work with predominately whites….You cannot compare the both countries you mentioned to the UK when it comes to racism. Infact, I can’t even stand (some) my fellow country people overseas..Story for another day!!

    I laugh in Spanish. Theresa, you are not introducing anything new. This is simply a remix of the erstwhile HSMP

    As a “lazy Nigerian youth” hustling for specialty training position here in UK, I think it makes the playing ground “fairer”. Any training post here is UK and EU first, then the rest of the world.
    Now it will be UK first, then everybody else will complete fairly.

      @Flemzy, in practice it will likely devolve to UK first, EU and US second, and then everyone else…
