Apparently Boris Johnson wants there to be Bilateral mobiility zones between Australia, NZ and UK.
"Any Australian or New Zealander who wanted to travel to, live and work in Britain would get a free visa – although they would not get immediate access to welfare support.
The same would apply for British citizens who wanted to work in Australia."

What a fantastic idea! As someone who has lived with all the hassle of visas just so that I can live in the same country as my husband of 20 years I can only wish that it had always been like this. Especially now as Australian spouses of UK citizens (and Australians generally) are treated so badly by the UK, whilst the country is flooded with EU citizens. Bring it on!
Hopefully it would also get rid of some of the ridiculousness of the Australian visa system whereby Brits have to prove they can speak English - at least the UK govt only makes you take the IELTS test if you are from a non-EU non-English speaking country.
It's not April 1st is it????
