Brits have to score points to gain entry to Aus - they cant just go and get a job, there is strict criteria, therefore those that go are highly skilled or have a large amount of cash in order to set up a business - so its not that amazing really,
Nevertheless they are still immigrants skills or not, and do not make it sound that extraordinary,some have skills, some have monies, and some just get a visa.....according to standards and rules set by Australian government, in the same way Poles immigrate to UK...rules are set by UK government.
also its an ex colonly which we built :)
I love that bit:) So, you think that English have the right to immigrate to countries they colonized and spread over to, just because of the history? funny :)
I believe that the open door policy would not have come about had we been given a vote, that I can say for sure.
Thats the EU for you, you could have only postponed that policy for few years.
That influx of immigrants postponed your recesion for about two to three years
Anyway, you are very naive in a ways politics works, it is irrelevant what majority would have voted for because such question wouldn't had been put to vote in the first place.
I havent enjoyed the way wages have been driven down and public services have become burdened - I personally havent gained, but Im sure a lot of business have due to cheap labour.1989
long before any Eastern European country become member of EU, but opened their markets to the EU countries.
Anyway, you keep taking about wages, I do not think it is possible, if the wages would keep going up, also the prices would follow.
Maybe it was true for certain jobs, but not like you make sound it, some wide and common phenomena.
Have a LOT of Poles enjoyed purchasing properties back home with the ££'s they earned?
Do I ask you what you are spending monies you earn for ?Would you consider being grateful to people paying your salary?
By the way, not that long ago prices of properties in Poland were driven up by the British companies, many Brits enjoyed hearty returns of their investment's in this enterprise.
Should they be grateful to Poland or to Poles working in UK and paying for their enrichment?
and public services have become burdened
such as? because health services are burdened by old people and a little children the most, and there hardly any old people from Poland, and few kids.
