    Hi all,
    I appreciate the clampdown that is initiated by the new ‘Gutsy’ UK government. I was a student in UK for 2 years; studied in a reputed Uni and passed the PG course in a year and when it came down to PSW, they refused my application, because, I was not having sufficient funds in my bank a/c for a month or so. My point is, why didn’t they realise that, a genuine student who’s only allowed to work for 20 hours a week and have finished the course by paying international fees, is again expected to maintain *.* amount for 3 months? These sort of rules should be put on so called illegals. They’re the one’s who just makes money and do not even attend a college in their life time. They are the ones who go 2 a solicitor and pay him GBP 5000 + to get a certificate and other fake documents and get a ‘HSMP’. How ridiculous is this?
    Next point, how come an husband who only has got the qualification of ‘Fucking’ his wife is able to claim HSMP? How come, he can work 24 hours a day, 6 days a week a spend 1 day for wanking, just b’coz his wife is a ‘Nurse’? I’m Sorry, if I sound offensive. If Britain has to retain their own talents, then they should make sure that such loopholes are eradicated and make a new system in place.
    UK government must make sure that all loop holes are closed in order for them to say “Equal Opportunities” are given to ‘Genuine’ people. I’m also wondering, how come a nation who has invented and put in place a world class transportation and other facilities, could not control the illegal flow of people from around the world.

    how true is the news that foreign students are now allowed to work full time like the uks nad the eus

  3. its just ridiculous that the govt doesnt want to address a serious problem, of the 1000’s of illegals in the uk.
    I believe, the govt cant easily deport all of us within a month, if only the police was to stop and check on public transport. Thousands will be caught, there you go problem solved.
    But they need the illegals to work on £2 hour for small businesses to survive, they need a cause to implement certain laws which im sure affects only immigrants. the real problem is only the illegals, nothing like the eu workers who can claim benefits, nothing like the asylum seekers who do not work.

  4. why cant we have an amnesty. unskilled non eu workers banned from the uk, i mean I work on peanuts and pay my taxes and pay for almost everything.
    all i ask for is to be regularised, but the public opinion is strongly against this.
    we need an amnesty, we want to work and pay our taxes and contribute to the economy. the vast majority of immigrants who and legal of illegal here do not go on benefits, and the fact that we are already living and working here doesnt remotely raise an issue on strain on the public service, people think we are probably living on the trees of underground.
