    The crackdown on immigration proceeds in earnest!

    Source

    This is a step towards Britain's victory in the war against multiculturalism. The country will begin by trying to cut down on the number of foreign students who pay unsubsidised rates for their education in British institutions. Only "the brightest and the best" are welcome, and after that they have to leave, unless they already have job offers (which we can be reasonably sure will be made more difficult to obtain).

    Such measures are in place to ensure that Britain will remain British and that its hallowed traditions will not be soiled by the influx of foreign talents and intellectuals. Of course, all sorts of interests might be against the crackdown on the number of smartypants entering and staying, which is why most of the government rhetoric is directed against uneducated immigrants. Moreover, Britain remains officially welcoming to foreign students who contribute to the country while cutting down on their numbers. Hopefully, this way British universities will not lose out even as the war against immigration proceeds. It is no wonder, then, that the universities are lauding it as "a cunning plan".

    So what do you think? Is Britain's plan wise as well as cunning?

    :lol: Nice video ParadigmShifter. Goes to show that a number of immigrants would serve Britain a lot better than some of its native sons.

    Also, "muslamic" made me smile :)

    Thus far, the Tories' anti-immigration agenda looks just as meaningless as ever. Like the anti-multiculturalism thing, I'd wager it'll be all mouth and no trousers. The only reason they bother at all is to prevent more votes leaking to foamy-mouthed paranoiacs like UKIP and the BNP.

    They just hate universities, who make a packet out of foreign students.

    Just get in the Daily Mail - they hate everyone and everything. Don't forget, folks - Islam causes cancer!

    Nah, "Will Islam give your mortgage AIDS?" is more realistic.

    They hate universities and Islam - there's got to be a connection between the two!

    I don't know about meaningless. Many of the foreign students I know consider the elimination of the post-study work visa very detrimental to attracting foreign students. But maybe this is statistically untrue. Maybe it won't have a significant effect on the number of foreign students going to UK universities?

    Who cares if someone moves into your neighborhood? You don't have to live in the same house to be a good neighbor.

    Stupid policy motivated by a stupid election promise to slash net migration, even though the vast, vast majority of immigrants come from the EU or to attend our universities. Just another day under a Tory government.

    Well, the Tories are worried the UKIP or BNP will steal their core voters - which shows just how racist the Tories are.

    Universities make loads of cash from non-EU students, who pay way over the odds for education.

    They can pack off all the British "foreigners" about the same time that they expatriate all the elitist white boys, as far as I'm concerned.
