From New Zealand and Australia to open the door

London Mayor Boris Johnson says when Britain joined the European Union it betrayed its relationship with Australia, New Zealand and other Commonwealth countries and he wants to put that right.

Most New Zealanders support the move, according to a poll on msn.co.nz — 84 per cent of voters said it should be easier for Kiwis to work in Britain.

New Zealanders aged 18 to 30 can obtain a two-year working holiday visa but if they want to stay longer they must qualify for an ancestry visa or be classed as a skilled worker.

Natasha Stokes, 26, from Linwood, Christchurch welcomed the new plans and said she would move back to the UK in a ‘flash’ if it was possible.

The mother-of-one said she and her husband Ade, who is English, believe there are better opportunities in England.

She said: “I met my husband in 2007 when I did my overseas experience in the UK.

“We had only been together a short time and I couldn’t stay so we came back to New Zealand and have been here ever since.

“If the laws are relaxed and Kiwi workers are allowed into Britain for longer I see this as great news for Kiwis because going to the UK offers a person so many opportunities.

“We would move back there in a flash.

“I want to try and get back there before my family grows up because there will be better opportunities there for my son as he grows up.

“At the moment you need to have an awful lot of money saved or I would have to be separated from my husband for a year so he can go back, get a job and be in it for at least six months.

“I think Kiwis feel a little betrayed because you think being part of the Commonwealth it wouldn’t be too hard for Kiwis and Australians to stay and work in the UK.”

Kayla McCallum, from Wellington said she would love to move to the UK because it opens so many opportunities for Kiwis.

She said: “I think this is great news for Kiwis.

“I love the history and the politics of the UK. There is a great going out and music scene and just a huge amount of opportunities to undertake.

“I would love to do something in customer service or in the early childhood field. I am hoping I will be able to qualify for an ancestry passport because my grandmother is English and still holds her passport.

“But getting the laws relaxed for other Kiwis who don’t have that same opportunity would be great.”

Mr Johnson, who is holidaying in Australia, was outraged after receiving a letter from teacher Sally Roycroft, who was "effectively kicked out of Britain" for not being from the EU.

Prime Minister John Key explained he continually argues the case for access to Britain.

He added: "I think his support will help, he's very influential in the Conservative Party.”
