Favorite for the office of British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, plans to introduce a point-based immigration system based on the Australian model, anyone who wants to work in the United Kingdom should be able to prove a job in the country and speak English before the arrival in the country . “We need to be tougher with those who abuse our hospitality,” Johnson said at a Wednesday evening rally.
“Other countries like Australia have great systems and we should learn from them,” Johnson said. The number of migrants without education must be controlled, they are a burden on our economy. The rights of the approximately three million EU citizens who already live in Britain, Johnson wants to uphold – even in the event of an unregulated EU exit.
Johnson judged the no-deal case to be very unlikely. He said he was “one million to one against,” the former foreign minister said. Nevertheless, one must be prepared for it. Johnson wants to renegotiate the Brexit agreement, Brussels refuses.
Boris Johnson is commonly seen as a favorite to succeed May. After the vote on the Brexit was won, hesitated Johnson nor to claim the office of the Prime Minister, preferring to give Theresa May precedence. Instead, he took over the State Department from 2016 to 2018 and became the Prime Minister’s worst critic inside the Cabinet.
The British had voted in June 2016 by a narrow majority in a referendum for the EU exit of their country. Because she failed three times in parliament with her Brexit deal, Prime Minister Theresa May announced her resignation last month. The Brexit period has since been extended until 31 October, this year.
Johnson and his competitor, Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt, represent at 16 regional conferences of their party base. Then the approximately 160,000 Tory members are to vote on the new party leader and thus the prime minister. May’s successor will be announced on July 23, according to the Conservative Party
