Labour’s plan to put an end to fake student’s is bang on the money.
Have had interaction with several of these individuals who do little to conceal their fraud. One claimed to be training as an electrical engineer doing domestic work, but didn’t even possess a screwdriver.
His cousin claimed to be training to become a Microsoft security systems specialist, but had never heard of Linux! In reality they were toilet cleaners and each had significant health issues. By contrast, another man from the same country managed a 1000 hectare growing operation with up to 60 staff.
So it is not an ethnic issue as many would claim, moreover it is closing the door on phoney applicants.
Well done Labour!
