Points-based system rules are “rebarbative” – official

18 February 2018

After having spent the last few years struggling with monumentally complex points-based system immigration rules we were delighted to read that Lord Justice Underhill, sitting at the Court of Appeal in a case called “Mudiyanselage”, has said of these rules that they constitute “a rebarbative system which makes navigation far from straightforward”.

The word “rebarbative” sounds rather nasty, and we rushed to our Shorter Oxford English Dictionary to discover the full extent of the nastiness. It means “repellent”, “unattractive” or “objectionable”.

We cannot bring ourselves to disagree with LJ Underhill’s assessment. The PBS immigration rules are surely one of mankind’s most complex ever creations, in this respect probably rivalling the Parthenon and the international space station.
