  1. Excellent comments mr john…u grab my words. uk will face serious manpower crisis soon…..the legal but unfair policy cant last soon when they will see students going to canada and australia…..

  2. John Rubio says :

    If the government will abolish totally the entitled working hours for international students, it means to say that 10percent will be left or nobody will think to come here in UK and study. So, the tax beneficiaries or the british citizen will be forced to work especially in a care settings. British citizens or tax beneficiaries will be doing personal care like washing faeces of their clients, being spit on their faces or bitten by their mentally ill clients. those are just small samples of million incidents in a care settings that british citizen will have to face as soon as those International students will be leaving UK for MUCH BIGGER opportunities abroad like Canada, Australia, new zealand and other better countries. EU people can’t do caring jobs because they don’t like pooh pooh and they know that they can still recieve money even though they are not workin. Let’s see whose going to take care of their elderly poeple.. Anyway, GOODLUCK to all International students.. May you find better country than UK…
