Australia has a severe shortage of skilled workers and is targeting Brits - very successfully.
Last year nearly 100,000 Brits moved here.

"The big lure wasn't economic..It was a new lifestyle and better opportunities for the kids. And the big sweetener was the exchange rate. Prospective workers owned homes worth about (Pounds)160,000 to 190,000, or about $450,000. In Mackay that will get you a brand new house on 850 sqare metres with four bedrooms, double lock-up garage and a pool."
Brits are very welcome here so long as they don't mention The Ashes or the Rugby.
