Any britons here?

Postby Biogentic » Fri, 23 Jul 2010 4:56 am

Hi, anyone know about the PR procedures in britain? is it easy to get pr before securing a job in britain? i am holding uk qualifications and hope to land myself an accounting job over there... how is the life of being an accountant over there? is the sector populated with uk citizens? i am sick of my country and looking to move out of here.. i rather be a third class citizen in your country than being a outcast in my home country. All advices and comments are greatly appreciated.

Hey, in another thread you go on ranting about foreigners taking jobs in Singapore, and in this thread you want to go to the UK and take someone's job?

Well join the queue behind the Poles, Hungarians, Bulgarians, Czechs etc who already have a right to live and work in the UK.

In my experience they make better workers than those whose main motivation is to avoid bettering themselves in and just railing against the injustice of other people coming to their country and stealing their jobs anyway.

Get a life, stop complaining about foreigners "stealing" your jobs and houses and start working hard to get up the ladder like everyone else in the world has to....

Based on this post, I think you'd be an outcast in any country...

It's going everywhere nowadays.
My advice is to go and give it a go. I left the UK in 2001 to go and work overseas. SG next on the list, hopefully.
Stop moaning and do it.
