    So glad no one has applied, we have enough experts in this country, I mean the number of plumbers who are also economists, virologists, scientists, immunologists..

    A post-Brexit scheme to draw the world’s most celebrated academics and other leading figures to the UK has failed to attract a single applicant in the six months since it opened, it has been reported.

    The visa route open to Nobel laureates and other prestigious global prize winners in the fields of science, engineering, humanities and medicine – among others – was described as a joke by experts after ministers admitted its failure to garner any interest.

    “Chances that a single Nobel or Turing laureate would move to the UK to work are zero for the next decade or so,” the Nobel prize winner Andre Geim told New Scientist magazine, which first reported the news.

    Generally foreign Nobel prize winners tend to be a tad intelligent...

    Why would any of them consider moving to a nationalistic backward moving country?

    Priti 'nasty' patel obviously doesn't get it!

    The Nobel prize has been dumbed down, a bit like knighthoods in the UK.
    It all depends who you know and mixing with the right people, these awards dont have the prestige that they once had.

    Well, they haven’t said they’re moving to this country because once someone says that, they normally do, don’t you find? Only the stupid ones slag the country off, say they are moving and don’t.

    Aww bless...

    The creepy stalking mottie dog can't let go of that bone...

    Probably because it never has anything useful to say so it has to occupy it's mouth with something :rolleyes:

    Edit. I forgot. It's mouth is usually full of booze by now!

    Can they drive HGVs?

    I've lived in a few different places around the world, but despite the weather, the UK is a nice place to live.

    It was a scheme built on spin and propaganda.

    this govt has zero skills in governance, a visit to Peppa Pig world teaches us that
