    Not declared convictions

    You will have to provide a police certificate as part of any visa application which will show your conviction, and then it will be immediately obvious to the case officer that you failed to declare this when you applied for your WH visa. It is hard to see how you would then meet the criteria. One thing they really really don't like is people who lie to get a visa. I would suggest you go home and try in a few years if you have the skills.

    Boris has to face up to his lies, finally.

    How does leaving the EU stop us attracting resources & people we need exactly? We will have complete control over who we let in; If we need certain skills, there is nothing at all to stop us inviting people to come.
  3. Isn't that the truth! Too many exceptions, too many changing rules, formats, codes etc. This is why the likes of Thomas Reuters are making so much money...
  4. Ah that is mostly a myth; I should know being head of delivering digital finance for a $5Bn multinational company .

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    I was disappointed with his performance as Foreign Sec, but I agree he was not committed to the role because he rather got half of it, or less after the creation of DEXU and Liam Fox on international trade. I think he will be a better PM than anything else. He is suited to being a motivation figurehead, and reminding the country we are much much better than we think.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    If Boris can convince people to pay him that kind of cash to speak, he can get us out of the EU and deliver a free trade deal.
  7. They are just jealous Alan; secretly everyone wishes they were an accountant Jon, ACMA, CGMA, shortly CPA ha.

    Same here, this would be worth a lot to me.

    And the next Prime Minister is, ???

    I am impressed with your knowledge of the demographics of the conservative party membership.

    To be fair, the tax burden on people earning in that range is much higher than it used to be.

    If Gove has something on Boris he probably also has the brains to keep hold of it until a better time to become PM comes along.

    Accounting Qualification - CPA

    Thanks Ferrets. We are hoping to live in Perth, so getting a job is going to be critical. I am working for an ASX listed company, but no presence in Perth and few jobs at my level anyhow, so we are going it alone. I may have to step down to a senior manager role to get work I guess, but for the right company that isn't a drama.

    North shore schools and houses

    You get into the public schools by living in the catchment area - it is guaranteed (very unlike Surrey). essentially you apply once you have proof of a signed lease. I would say good quality houses in NS looked quite challenging for less than about $1200 a week when I was looking a few months ago. (The job offer fell through so we are off to Perth now)

    Spreadsheet crew does Shipping

    Good progress all round! Good news, I hope you manage to enjoy some last UK summer along the way. We are thinking if the timing works we will rent a motorhome and do a bit of a tour for a few weeks before we fly out.

    And the next Prime Minister is, ???

    The Conservatives are as they say, a broad church. I think his policies are a great example of fiscal conservatism and more liberal social values. Works for me. He won't win this time , but I would like to see him in a cabinet role in a new government.
