Brown Wants The Brightest People To Come To Uk

Recommended Posts

Guest Mr Parry
Gates, Jobs, Dell Unworthy to Get U.K. Visa

:lol:

Our schools have produced a generation who only want to be famous, so the plan appears to be to import the doctors and engineers that we need, lucky we have great mineral wealth to pay them with!

Do you ever get the feeling that the UKis being hollowed out?

What? I left already . . .

Why should people go to Brown when he can come to us and talk or does he not like the idear of not being able to act as moderator and delete posts he does not like.

Where is the big public discussion as our rights are being removed and the magna carter is being torn up.

Brown is nothing more than yet another MAFIA boss.

The British are an innovative people, but much of their wealth was secured through, ahem, acquiring it, from third world nations over centuries. The bottom line this option is no longer available, and Britian finds itself to be a chronically overpopulated and damp little island off the coast of continental Europe with no natural resources and 1000 of its citizens leaving every day for a new life in another country. What the future for the UK is I have no idea, although a subsidiary province of a European superstate seems likely at this time. I do know that if the UK thinks it can attract large numbers of the world's brightest away from places like Queensland and California it needs a reality check. While there were piles of money in the UK brought in by the financial sector Britain could offer something to these people, but without it (and it is rapidly disappearing) Britain will come over all 1970s again. We already have the pound in freefall and hundreds of thousands of public sector on strike.

Why would anyone with something to offer want to come to bankrupt UK? I think it's a lot more likely that those with something to offer who are already here will pack up and leave.

Largely agree with what you say, but do remember that Britain is still the World's fifth largest economy.

As if anyone bright is going to come to the UK and work hard. They can see that Gordenron will tax it all off them, a decent house is unaffordable, the place is becoming more dangerous by the minute. Gordenron is crackers.

Perhaps Mr Brown should be encouraging those British citizens who have left, to return. And with the news that unemployment is rising, why is he looking to increase immigration? A better policy would have been to look at the needs of the country and ensure the correct education and training of students and workers were implemented years ago. Didn't this government have a Strategic Plan, or was it just to acquire cheap labour from abroad?

A large economy is meaningless if it doesn't provide a happy and fulfilling lifestyle. We have a big economy, but all we can do for leisure is get drunk. (sweeping exageration of course ;) )

The Strategic Plan was that the Geniuses(*) of the city would lead the world in creative finance(**), making vast profits(***) for all of us. This would be redistributed by dint of house prices doubling every 7 years(****), for ever, and people remortgaging every 2 years. And it would have worked, too, if it wasn't for those pesky HPC kids.

(*) Greedy short-sighted wide boys.

(**) Selling s**t to suckers.

(***) Losses.

(****) See the Wilsons, how could maths teachers ever be wrong?

Don't get me wrong, I agree that Britain is going down the tubes. That's why I left 2 years ago!

Just pointing out that it's not (yet) an irrelevance on the world stage.

Two comments -

When does someone earning 26K+ plus count as highly skilled? Thats pretty much what the uk average wage is, if not slightly below. Are what they really after, highly skilled and (comparatively) cheap labour?

Why would highly skilled people come to the uk? Our wages for engineering, science, etc, which is what they seem to want to attract are to be honest, crap. The simple way to resolve any shortage is to raise wages to the point where it becomes economically attractive for uk citizens to choose these careers, not to import foreign workers to further depress wages (not that many would come anyways).

What a clever move. Get the bright people to emigrate then get bright people from other countries who have no idea what kind of rip off culture awaits them to come in and replace them. Landlords, employers and other caring types will have a field day exploiting the new arrivals.

nice post.

the only way out would be to crank up energy production of all types inc nuclear. possibly export some through the euro grid.

UK is chronically short of engineers. Can't get young Britains interested in it. That is why foreigners, like me, come over to do the highly skilled design work. For a lot more than £26K.

Its a pity, as the UK has a history of engineering excellence and one way to keep manufacturing in this country is to use high-tech automated equipment, as manual labour is too expensive here.

Ah well, you'll just have to deal with us immigrants then if you can't train your own people to make useful things.

thatcher trashed it.

there was nothing wrong with rover cars. just the badge image.

she slagged off british engineering to justify its destruction. mud stuck.

it was fashionable to laugh at it. but it was always as good as the germans.

I get your point, but Rover was a bad example. Ever since the seventies, their cars have been on the whole cr*p!

Brown Wants The Brightest People To Come To UK

So basically, all he needs to do is sell the idea of crap weather, crap pay levels, crap amounts of holiday, long working days, high essential living costs, unaffordable housing and tax as an answer to every problem to a bunch of people with higher than average intelligence. Good luck to him.

Again you can blame Thatcher, Rover got itself a nice little deal with Honda which was slowly turning thinks round and then the germans popped up to get rid the competition and Thatcher decided to screw both Rover and Honda and sell to the Germans.
