Britain’s new High Potential Individual (HPI) visa scheme

Britain’s new High Potential Individual (HPI) visa scheme is waving and wooing graduates from the world’s top 50 universities to work in Britain. They include China’s Tsinghua University, Harvard, Stanford, MIT and our own NTU and NUS etc.

Such an opportunity may only come once in a lifetime for many young people. Imagine if you were a Singaporean who has recently graduated from either NTU or NUS and unmarried, would you pass up on this opportunity to travel, to explore and to experience life and work in Britain?

This is an obviously attractive prospect. The question is whether this euphoria will last.

To be fair, life and career prospects in Singapore are decent for our educated young people but the advantages that we have over foreigners whom the pap government has so liberally let in over the decades is fast diminishing. To add insult to injury, we don’t know for sure how many of those whom the pap government has let in are of dubious quality or even charlatans and competing against us..

To me, at least for the next 2 to 3 GEs, I do not foresee Singapore breaking away from having a mediocre or even a weak pap government and a mediocre and/or weak government will definitely create hard times and lesser opportunities for its people. I may be wrong but despite much unwillingness to believe among many people, we are alearly witnessing them happening right before our eyes.

Next, although Britain is a no utopia and their tax rates are famously high, still, it is a breath of fresh air. At home, the competition at the work places against foreigners is stacked high against Singaporeans be it reservist obligations, family commitments, cost of living or CPF contributions etc.

If I were the government, it is unlikely that I will ease up too much on the importation of S pass holders and EP holders because they are my potential harvesting grounds for new citizens who in turn will beef up my vote bank to make up for the fast disappearing native Singaporean electoral support.

This strategy is now so clear to so many people. At most when the pressure gets too much, I may wayang a little merely to pacify those gullible suckerporeans.

In short, with HPI visa, we are likely to lose more of our own limited, young, qualified and energetic As but the pap government will on the other hand, ‘very cleverly’ make it up with more Bs, Cs and Ds from CECA, from Malaysia and from China etc.

If I were young and qualified graduate, I am likely to apply for Britain’s HPI visa. Unlike under the old guard leadership, Singapore under that useless lhl and this current pap 4G leadership will continue to go down even more.

Think.

    Dear Simon,
    First you said China Tsinghua University is top 50 best uni.

    Then you accused our great PAP make it up with Bs, Cs and Ds from China and Malaysia.

    Why are you contradicting yourselves ?

    So is Tsinghua As or Bs ? Can you make up your mind ?

    btw, Sunway University, SEGi University, Asia Pacific University degree from Malaysia is also good degree…just like Uptron ACL 3-mth Diploma beats Singapore Poly SP NP TP NYP

    for the first time in Spore’s history perhaps, this a golden opportunity for Singaporeans and perhaps even for PRs.

    UK is a vast country compared to Spore. It has great beauty, history and tugs at the hearts of many Singaporeans. London is no as squalid and crime-ridden as New York and Chicago.

    English is the language and no need to struggle with multiple languages. As for food, the choice may be limited but any foreign student knows…cooking for yourself is far better, much cheaper and often more tasty. Many foreign students become very good at cooking too.

    It is about good income despite the high taxes. Plus the chance to acquire UK citizenships later, etc.

    For many, Spore is will Home when it comes time to return. Really, nothing to lose.

    Oh…medical services is free, I heard, in UK.

    Go Singaporeans Go. Nothing venture, nothing gain. You are getting high paying jobs there.

    No UK firm will employ male Sinkies. They have reservist obligations. Forget it, good for females.

  • Smart Nation:

    The young should take this opportunity but not the old as the winter might be too cold for them. The New Citizen doctors might also want to take this opportunity. PAP may have to import more doctors with Third-World degrees. SG could soon become the richest country with Third World health care! LOL!

  • Cancel the PAP:

    Let’s say it’s just BRILLIANT of the British Govt under Boris Johnson.

    The trade mark of PAP – pennies wise pound foolish.

    Obviously the Who Qing CHIDED tt SGpns are SUPER racists when we picked on cheating qualifications of India Indians with dubious certs used to chase away SGpns for jobs.

    PAP said they practice meritocracy – really?

  • Harder Truths:

    As someone who travelled in my younger years and also have all my family migrate, I can tell you first hand there is better opportunity and lifestyle for $inkies overseas.

    Does a $inkie want to work 80 hours a week just to keep a job that one day will diapppear? Also lose health to overwork, worry and now jab jab like Guinea Pig?
    By the time reach 40 already on unemployment line for good. Cannot own any property – HDB is fake housing and freehold is also a con job.

    G osomewhere else and start fresh. You have nothing to lose and all to gain.

    Nice gesture.

    Hope UK can enable Singaporean middle-aged businessmen to operate in UK too.

    Hope UK and US can support Singaporeans who are pro-Israel.

  • Red Dot For Sale To Tiong:

    ”Chinese national buys 20 units at CanningHill Piers for around S$85m: Lianhe Zaobao”

    ”can foreigners buy property in China? The answer is yes, foreigners are allowed to purchase property in China! The essential requirement is that you have studied or worked in China for at least one year on a residence permit. Foreigners are allowed to only own one residential property for dwelling purposes.”
    So tiongs can buy as many private properties in RedDOT as they want.
    But foreigners can only buy one for dwelling in China!
    Seems like our NS boys will never be able to afford private property which they are FORCED to swear to defend.
    Unless daddy is very rich.
    Defend Tiongs’ properties!
    Cooling measures do not work, if somebody want to wash money.

    Tech: Err… can I add a bit of info here, not wrong that foreigners are allowed to buy properties, BUT if I am not wrong, it depends on the type of VISA you are holding. Those on holiday VISA cannot buy any properties, in fact, they cannot even own a bank account, along with other restrictions. As for how many properties, I think what the reader commented may not be entirely correct because I do know of someone who has 3 apartment properties in China, so might have to check on what exactly and how did he managed to do that.

  • Red Dot for sale to CECA:

    Don’t forget the CECA. Poor Sinkies trained in NS to do guard duties. When older, they do real guard duties at CECE condo. Both periods, they get screwed. Thanks to PAP.

  • UK freedom, NOT.:

    Many people, especially westerners and their worshipers, proclaim UK as the land with lots of freedom. Now, UK has, once again, shown its true colour. British people are “free” to spread the official propaganda. Any question or discussion of the official propaganda will be silenced. The “criminals” will be hounded.

    All you NTU/NUS graduates, if you want to go to UK, be prepared to keep your mouth taped. No freedom there.

    “British media joins crusade against dissenting academics”
    https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2022/06/01/683148/UK-Russia-BBC-Inquisition-Ukraine-Syria-Hayward-Schlosberg

    Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi at the same session of the House of Commons described the said academics and the like as people who are “buying” Moscow’s “false narrative” about the war in Ukraine.

    “It is a false and dangerous narrative and we will crack down on it hard,” Zahawi said.”
