Post-Brexit immigration plan 'will slash EU unskilled arrivals by 90,000 a year' - but the number of skilled workers coming to the UK could RISE

Boris Johnson and Priti Patel signed off on new immigration system last week

Blueprint is due to be rubber stamped by the full Cabinet at meeting on Friday

Plans would cut unskilled EU migration but more skilled workers could come

The government's post-Brexit immigration system could slash unskilled arrivals from the EU by 90,000 a year.

However, the reduction could be offset by a rise in skilled workers coming to the UK under the Australian-style blueprint.

Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Priti Patel are understood to have signed off on the new points-based arrangements last week. It will be put to full Cabinet on Friday - after Mr Johnson carries out his long-awaited reshuffle.

They should come into effect on January 1 next year after the Brexit transition period ends and the UK no longer needs to follow Brussels rules.

Official figures showed net long-term migration was 212,000 in the year to June


Mr Johnson has insisted he wants to 'bear down' on immigration, but ditched the previous Tory targets of the 'tens of thousands'.

Official figures showed net long-term migration was 212,000 in the year to June.

It is understood the new scheme will scrap the route into the UK for unskilled migrants.

That could cut immediately numbers of unskilled EU migrants by 90,000 a year.

But officials are said to have predicted a rise in skilled migrants coming to the UK - which was 65,000 a year on the most recent estimate.

Under existing rules, skilled migrants from outside the EU must have a job offer with a minimum salary of £30,000.

But this threshold is expected to be lowered to £25,600. That would be in line with a recent report from the independent Migration Advisory Committee.

Workers earning less could still get a visa to work in the UK if they work in a sector with a skills shortage.

Speaking good English or having an 'outstanding' educational background will add 'points' towards getting a visa.

A letter outlining the details of the policy is being sent to Cabinet this weekend, ahead of the meeting on Friday.

Did anyone tell the French President that Britain has left the EU and doesn't have to do as he tells us?

Now that Britain has officially left the European Union as a member, Ursula Von Der Leyen and the EU Commission have realised that they need us more than we need them. In an attempt to calm things down, the EU have announced that they will give the UK a tailored deal. Meanwhile, Sajid Javid wants to protect the financial services after the December 2020 transition period with a new proposal.

Now that Britain is a non-EU country, it is to end EU free movement:

EU migrants will have to earn at least £23,000 before they are allowed into Britain, as Boris Johnson pledges to end reliance on cheap, unskilled labour with new Australian-style points-based immigration system

In the first meeting with his new cabinet Boris Johnson and his team signed off on a new Australian-style points-based immigration system, which will prohibit any EU migrant earning under £23,000 per year from entering the country in a move to end reliance on unskilled labour.

Home Office analysis estimates the system is expected to slash the number of low skilled workers arriving from the EU by 90,000 a year.

In most cases, skilled migrants will have to have a job offer paying more than £25,600 - a lower threshold than currently applies to migrants from outside the EU.

Migrants will also earn ‘points’ for how well they speak English. In some cases migrants taking jobs paying as little as £23,000 could be granted visas, depending on their skills.

All migrants will need to have a secure job offer in place, with more points awarded for areas there are shortages. Those with higher levels of education, or those who were educated in the UK, will also earn more points.

'The system will be simpler and fairer and will not discriminate between countries and would return democratic control of immigration to the British people,' a Downing Street office spokesman said.

Batten the hatches, Blackleaf - was just reading that Storm Dennis is barreling its way towards the UK.

"The storm has undergone bombogenesis, the Weather Channel reported, which means it can be called a bomb cyclone. Bombogenesis occurs when a storm's barometric pressure drops by 24 millibars – a millibar is a way of measuring pressure – in 24 hours."

"Hurricane-force winds of up to 98 mph and monster waves that could reach over 100 feet high were already roaring across the North Atlantic on Saturday, the U.S. National Weather Service’s Ocean Prediction Center said."

"In Britain, airlines have canceled hundreds of flights out of London and other U.K. airports and train lines warned about possible delays and cancellations. Tens of thousands of passengers will be affected on what is a busy travel day for families as most schools in the country closed for a one-week mid-winter break.

The weather is expected to strike all areas of Britain, including parts of northern England still recovering from Storm Ciara last weekend. That storm left at least eight people dead across Europe, including two in the U.K."

The EU is just an organization full of a bunch of un-elected lazy and useless bureaucrats that do not have any real interest of any country in the EU. The EU was created by the globalist bankster elite whose only main aim is to take over the rest of the world and to take control over all the countries that join the EU. The citizen's in the EU will only find themselves ending up as slaves to a globalist elite who could care less about their well being.

Brexit is first, and I am pretty sure that there will be more to come. I believe that all countries should be all for their own nationalism like Canada should be doing. But with this pro globalist prime mistake of ours he does not believe in Canadian nationalism, he believes in globalism. It truly is a glorious day for Britain today. They now have their freedom to do as they please back. Works for me.

I believe that one day it will be the EU that collapses. There are leaks already starting to show in their EU boat. One more country to leave, and every other country will have to bail the EU sinking boat. Brexit has fixed their leaky boat and it is now full sail on.

Project Fear.

Project Bollocks, more like.

Next door in Ireland they may be about to have an IRA Government.

They will, of course, play much more hardball than Varadkar's Fine Gael Government in EU/UK negotiations over a trade deal, making a No Deal Brexit more likely.

Britain talks tough to the EU over trade as Boris Johnson's new negotiator David Frost says the UK will never accept any post-Brexit rules that would undermine 'the point of the whole project' of becoming 'an independent country'

Britain told the EU tonight it was not possible to accept Brussels' rules as part of a free trade deal because it would undermine 'the whole project' of Brexit.

In a brutal assessment of the UK bargaining position, Boris Johnson's new Brexit negotiator David Frost said the UK would rather walk away from talks than accept anything that interfered with 'the fundamentals of what it means to be an independent country'.

The EU is insisting that there can be no 'divergence' from its rules and regulations in areas including financial services and agriculture.

But Mr Frost used a speech in the Belgian capital this evening to warn that the hardline position against this already espoused by the Prime Minister was not just posturing.

He also added that the UK is 'ready for an 'Australia-style' free trade agreement with the bloc if its member states continue to have doubts about the terms of a no-quotas, no-tariffs deal

And he pointed out that if the UK and EU roles were reversed and the EU was forced to follow Westminster laws 'democratic consent would snap – dramatically and finally'.

Mr Frost told students and academics at the Université libre de Bruxelles: 'We bring to the negotiations not some clever tactical positioning but the fundamentals of what it means to be an independent country.

'It is central to our vision that we must have the ability to set laws that suit us – to claim the right that every other non-EU country in the world has.

'So to think that we might accept EU supervision on so called level playing field issues simply fails to see the point of what we are doing.

'It isn't a simple negotiating position which might move under pressure – it is the point of the whole project.

'That's also why we will not extend the transition beyond the end of this year. At that point we recover our political and economic independence in full – why would we want to postpone it?

'In short, we only want what other independent countries have.'
