I think it is a fair approach as HIGHLY SKILLED people already bring lots of benefits and were selected prior to entering the UK and deserve better attitude and rights from the UK government. Otherwise, they still feel insecure and in a risk and will not , for instance, buy property and settle down until they will be recognised and become UK citizens.
Dear Deputy Prime Minister,
Please consider to change immigration laws and allow highly skilled migrants to apply for citizenship in 2 years time like for married to the UK nationals instead of waiting 5-6 years. Economic migrants bring lots of benefits by paying taxes, NICs and contributing to the society but do not have equal human rights ( to naturalise, to vote and become a citizenship) and must wait for so long. Therefore , people like me feel unsecured and do not risk to buy property or settle down completely until they will have the same rights as UK nationals.
