The Australian Points System!

Posted on December 8, 2019

I am not sure if anyone has noticed but you may have seen Boris Johnson getting terribly excited about an ‘Australian style immigration points system’ lately. I have a couple of Australian people who work for me and I am fortunate enough to have couple of friends who live out there. Asking about their immigration system is quite interesting stuff because in many aspects it is not all that Boris Johnson makes it out to be. Could this be ...

Election Campaign – Week One

Posted on November 10, 2019

After the first week of the election campaign, it is difficult to make a call on where it is heading. Having had numerous conversations with people the general consensus is that Boris Johnson is not liked, mainly because he is a liar. He has almost certainly been corrupted by the type of people you wouldn’t want to be corrupted by. However, these same people cannot bring themselves to contemplate life under a Jeremy Corbyn government. ...
