    The criteria is that you need to have shown a genuine effort to stay with your employer. Basically it needs to be a genuine position in the first place and then you can't just skip as soon as you get your PR. Ive been in the role for 4 years and have done well. I just got headhunted and couldn't turn it down. I would have stayed and never intended to leave just yet! I think that I can demonstrate that fairly easily if asked.

    Mate I would have done my best! Can always ask Dutton - he seems to do it all the time!

    Hahaha! In SYNC totally. I used to be a ski instructor and taught up in Perisher five years ago! Spooky Holiday wise i've been skiing twice, had a trip to the reef and have my trips locked in for next year. Also Ive just been offered a job by the government no less. So after all this, I may be moving jobs in two weeks ha! EDIT: Not in the Department of Home Affairs haha

    Agreed he has a vested interest in maintaining numbers but he is not friend of immigrants I can assure you! I think we will see another challenge for the leadership this or next week. Going to be interesting!

    Dunnno mate, you see the latest polls Turnbull vs Shorten? Up until last week, malcolm was way ahead as a candidate. Be interesting now mind! https://www.news.com.au/national/politics/malcolm-turnbull-widens-lead-as-preferred-prime-minister-poll/news-story/cb03f5bebb68de2c26a08040127cba3a

    I think you may have misjudged Mr Morrison. He doesn't care about immigrants like us and thats evident in his comments on foreign policy. The only thing I would say would work in our favour is that he understands the economics of immigration and its contribution to the economy. I doubt he would reduce the target but he may get rid of occupations which are not as highly skilled as others/or in demand.

    Unfortunately if its Malcom vs Shorten then the Libs will win ?

    Yep the citizenship bill, although defeated once already, will probably go through if the liberals stay in. Malcolm will need to choose his battles if he does win with the hard right of his party. Citizenship for migrants is not worth the effort and the left don't really care either when compared to say energy. Im also going to call it now... Citizenship legislation will change and come into force in Feb next year ?

    Mate Malcolm is going to have to call an election asap. You heard it hear first - Election in November latest! I actually have an event Im running in early November and the PM is meant to be our keynote dinner speech....God forbid I have to welcome and host Peter Dutton!!! I despise the man! Dutton will resign now but challenge Malcolm if he doesn't call it. He only needs seven people to cross the line and its over. EDIT: Dutton has just resigned.

    It will come mate. Its a weird thing. After going through so much sh1t it all feels like a bad dream now. I'm honestly counting the days until I can apply for citizenship now haha...
