The Filipino Society has sent a 1300-name petition to Mr Carter, Mr Cunliffe and Prime Minister Helen Clark seeking a reinstatement of the former policy that gave skilled immigrants two-year work permits to find jobs which they could then use to apply for permanent residence.

Now seriously, how the hell can it take more than six months to find a job. If these immigrants are worth having in our country they should be able to jump off the plane and straight into a job, if they take longer than six months then they obviously aren't needed here and should be sent packing. We have one of the most lenient immigration systems in the western world, as soon as something goes our way towards tightening our immigration policys they cry foul and put together some sham petition to raise the work permits to two years! I'm sorry but if an immigrant needs two years to find a job in this country then obviously they shouldn't be here at all.
