    UK General Election Predictor

    It is not possible for you to say I will be wrong. You can say you think so as it’s your opinion and your belief but you cannot predict the future. I’m as likely to be wrong as you are and as I said, I hope I am. Its up to you what you and everyone else votes for, I completely respect that and hope that goes the other way. There are a huge amount of exceptionally intelligent people across the world that believe Brexit will be detrimental to the UK (I’m certainly not one of them I may add - exceptionally intelligent that is) There are also many that don’t. The one thing that is certain though is that even the smartest person on the planet cannot know for sure so it’s a wait and see game.

  12. Hi I have lodged my 309 and subsequent 600 visa applications through an MA. He has sent me acknowledgments received from the Department. I have my own IMMI Account and have imported my Subclass 300 application in my account but failed to import the first one i.e. 309. My question is whether I can import this application without the permission of my MA? Thanks

    Is Australian Super taxed in the UK

    Hello any updates on this ? I’ve got an untouched Australia accumulated superannuation fund and tho I was thinking of setting up a pension it’s a one off choice wondering if it is better to take a lump sum & leave the rest but no clue what the implications are. i didn’t think you could take 25% tax free as uk doesn’t approve of Australian funds. Which on the surface seems crazy as uk funds are hardly a gold standard. Thanks

    Gas engineer looking for advice

    GasFitter and Plumber I believe are the two closest occupations to Gas Engineer and that’s why I suggested you look at them but I expect both will include elements that as a Gas Engineer you have not done or needed (and may never actually need but it’s a necessary part of the qualification in NSW). You would need to look at the gaps you have and what you need to do to fill them. For example: Gas in Australia is not all Natural Gas, LPG is common in places and so the question is, have you done the LPG part of Gas Safe (I think they say it’s for caravans and boats etc in the U.K. ) and may therefore get recognition for prior learning and can you demonstrate that you can work in KpA and not Bar, Or for a plumbers licence should you choose to go that route, have you done drainage in the U.K.? It may not be part of a Gas Engineer requirement there but it’s a licensed plumber requirement in NSW as far as I know. Do you need a restricted licence for what you want to do (less than 150 KpA) or a full licence? Are you expecting to supervise people, or have someone sign off on your work so only need a Tradesman plumbing licence? Also bear in mind it’s different licensing if you choose to move interstate....it’s not a straight swap in some cases!

    If you think things will be that great you must be on some seriously strong shit. I will be voting for Boris as I believe he will run the country better than the alternatives. As for brexit, I voted to remain but I’m not a ‘remoaner’ I fully accept the result and the country has just got to get on with it. Do I think it will be rosy? Not a chance. I actually believe it will go down in history as one of the dumbest things the country has ever done. I really hope I’m wrong.

    Gas engineer looking for advice

    Thank you Marisa and LouDYorkie. Your advise is extremely helpful. Sorry, I haven’t quite worked out on my phone how to reply to your comments individually! Marisa, apologies if I came across as vague! Yes, indeed. I was planning on doing the working holiday visa initially and then going down partner visa route. I’m mindful that the partner visa can take up to 24 months to process (saw on the gov website) and so yes a bridging visa may be necessary. I understand that I would be easier to get a job once here however I wanted to be sure that there is something similar to my trade in the UK otherwise I would be considering a complete career chAnge which is daily daunting after being an experienced and well pAid gas engineer. Does anyone know what the equivalent to a ‘Gas engineer’ here? Or anyone that used to work for British gas and now works here ? Because of the climate I’m concerned t’ll be obsolete! Thanks again
