There goes the OE

The United Kingdom has announced a cap on "non-EU" immigration of 21,700 visas per year. To further cut immigration, they will also look at cutting family visa allowances. One of the common arguments I hear against a republic is that doing so would put the sacred "Overseas Experience" - the 'colonial birthright' as the Front Lawn once called it - at risk. This just goes to show that this is nonsense.
