After May became Home Secretary she suddenly put out an edict requiring quite high level English for people (maybe meaning Pakistanis) to get a visa to study English in the UK. As a result of this Catch-22 many language schools were undermined. I don't know what happened after that, since I gave up the idea of helping a Tibetan exit Tibet (temporarily) this way. This is a good assessment of May's record as Home Secretary: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jul/18/what-does-theresa-mays-record-as-home-secretary-tell-us Regarding education immigration, scroll down to Boris is proposing adding 20000 policemen. May reduced policing by 30000: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/07/05/theresa-may-disastrous-home-secretary-prime-minister-policing/ When the Referendum decided "leave", I was appalled by the idea of May as PM, realizing that it would be a monumental nightmare dictated by Madame Catch-22, i.e. May!!! If Boris had been PM back then, perhaps the EU and Ireland would have been unable to pass responsibility back and forth in order to prevent a solution to the Irish border, since there would have been adequate time to work out a solution. Instead we had a dilatory minuet between May and her remainer cohort on the one hand and, on the other, EU actors determined to sabotage the outcome for the first defector from the U.S.E. project [U.S.E. = United States of Europe] If needed I will further explain the bad faith game that Ireland and EU played in order to entangle the UK in this horror which the EU may one day fairly soon sorely regret.
