This consultation released today sets out the Tory plans for changing settlement to the UK. It suggests that any worker coming to the UK on a Tier 2 visa from April this year should be barred from settling permanently. Unless of course they have a salary over £150k. 

I'm not sure what I think about this. My current thoughts are mainly 'thank god I think they're not coming for us this time' and 'only a masochist would move to the UK under these rules.'  Who would subject themselves to the upheavals of emigration knowing, all along, they're not wanted.

If you think that discouraging skilled workers from filling posts in the UK is a bad idea, do consider responding.  For now, I'm going to go and let my palpitating heart settle down and get back to building a future.
