Australian Style Points System
I’m sick of hearing the phrase “Australian Style Points System”. Whilst I’m sure it’s better than our current chaos, hearing the words repeated time and again does become wearing.
But there is something about a points system that hasn’t been mentioned (or at least I haven’t heard it) and that is awarding negative points. I presume that under ‘Australian Rules’ that the more points you get, the more likely you are to be allowed entry and the points are based on how much value you may have to the receiving country i.e. age, wealth, skills etc etc.
What about awarding minus points for prospective immigrants from poor countries that can ill afford to lose skills.
Predating upon poor countries for their skilled and young doesn’t seem very ethical to me.
