Qianlong 5pts Re Australia: the section "temporary" is, unfortunately, a rather mixed bag. It contains students (who bring in tuition fees), wealthy retirees, backpackers and 457 workers, the group probably of the most interest to britons who believe the grass is greener in Oz. A 457 worker must be (a) sponsored (ie have an employer sponsoring andf (b) mus be representing a selected occupation (not all highly skilled). The 457 is the most similar to the EU and non EU workers who live in the UK with a view to return home after a period of work in the UK. A few years ago the 457 and the student classes were heavily abused by Indian intermediaries who arranged for (bogus) employers and especially bogus schools using gullible Indians paying high fees as glorified slave labour with a promise of permanent residency at the end. Reducing that (lucrative for some) inflow caused a diplomatic row with India and riots in front of Oz embassies and consulates.There is quite a lot that UK politicians can learn from their Aus counterparts in this area but it will not make them happier. What they would end up with would probably a version of the "closed shop" mr Corbyn now sees as the outcome of Brexit rather than the avenue for importing foreigners that are even cheaper than Europeans, the Tory ideal.
