Britain wants Indian Docs out but India wants them badly
This was bound to happen. Britain wins the round here. The 15000 doctors who had filed a court case to stay on in Britain and wanted the same treatment that EU docs get have lost. The doctors are actually considering filing an appeal against the verdict. But it is going to be futile as now that Britain is part of the EU. Britain simpy can’t give Indian docs the same treatment because it will have hundreds of EU docs entering Britain…how in the world can Britain cope? Well, jobs not just for doctors but for other specialities are available in India (and in fact India needs qualified people badly) which I have explained here. There is absolutely no dearth of jobs in India. Whether for doctors or for those from other specialities. There are 30,000 other economic migrants in Britain who are fighting legal cases to stay on in Britian. Well, this judgement should be the writing on the wall for them. Perhaps Britain will benefit from these Indian migrants they want out, but at the moment they have no space.
Ofcourse the doctors will have to live a harder life here in the sense they will have to live in crowded cities and the pay scales will be lower. And as everyone knows in India one simply does not have access to efficient public services. But hey, at least India wants you. Thats important. And if the wannabe migrants want pure air and a less crowded environment they could always go to the rural areas where doctors are badly needed. That may sound harsh, but I am just being practical.
If the country of your choice wants you, it is a different thing. People migrate in search of a better life and nothing wrong with that …but why forget that there are jobs waiting for them back home if things go wrong?
