Immigration poilitical hot potato will mean promises galore for ICT shake-up

Gordon Brown is today going to outline his policies on immigration. He is expected to put a stop to the immigration of unskilled workers.

Immigration is a political hot potato. Apparently the second most important issue for voters.

IT workers from oversees, such as India, make up a significant proportion of foreign workers in the UK. Their employers often use the Intra Company Transfer system to get them in.

Brown will, quite rightly, point out that foreign workers are important to the UK.

The Conservatives have already said they will introduce caps on the number of workers entering the UK.

I have just spoke to the Liberals and they said they will tell me their line once Brown has completed his speech.

What do you think?
