    That's not a consequence of Brexit, it's a consequence of a government trying to win votes from brickhole parts of the north. No good reason why we shouldn't be able to hire people from anywhere in the world but northerners will just shout about them "stealing our jobs"

    I have limited company but would have to apply for a visa as something else like teacher or musician as au pair is not on the list.

    The whole point was to stop wages being undercut by preventing the social dumping of unskilled labourers. This is exactly what Brexit is supposed to do. Hire someone who is using a foodbank.

    Because they are unskilled. If they aren't bright enough to get a tier 4 visa, why bring them across?

    why would we want to force Brits into unskilled jobs they don’t want?

    Is the Tory aim to fuk the economy so we bring back the working classes? Instead of getting educated and earning more let’s get people waiting outside the docks for casual work (aka zero hours) or fruit picking to make ends meet?

    I have no idea if one could do this or not. Presumably if you apply for a specific visa you have to prove you have skills or competences in that area. And the company has to apply to be able to bring in workers. So it has to be a little more complex than that. Not sure I’d be comfortable with effectively lying to immigration.

    I could pay for an education course that might be a way.

    Actually the people missing from the workforce are students. Cut their loans and get them back filling the casual part time roles

    That ignores the cultural benefits you get with foreign workers, which, I should imagine, are a large part of the appeal of an au pair.

    Hopefully also the week Sue Grey brings BJ down. Especially when she publishes the rumoured about 'Maggie Dust' photo, of him at the Cabinet table, cutting coke with the contents of Thatcher's urn

    Parody is a lost art in times where even something like that seems believable :)

    I think their critical faculties were impaired by last day of the season nerves, to be fair.

    How could he expect something like this to be kept secret?
    Oh, I forgot, he really doesn't care. Will the teflon ever wear off?
