it dosent matter where ya come from its what ya can do

without sound racisit.. where do all our doctors come from.. india/asia because they know there stuff and put the effort it..

same here

yeah you may go cambridge but a graduate from brixton could prob do the same job better

all depends on the person and the effort they put in

for instance,,, ive worked for asda home delivery 3 months nowand have been put on the steppin stones programme (managment traning basically) because i put my all in where as people have been there over a year haven even been considered for he basic of advance tasks (releaing of loads) just shows if u have insentive and willingness will get you far

Trouble is half of them probably have dodgy credentials from non existent foreign universities!!

Anyway back to the question, I think it is irrelevant as to your qualifications, experience counts for everything nowadays. If you have proven ability in something it means much more than a bit of paper that says you read some books and took an exam. I wouldn't hire either of them based on just their qualifications.

I wouldnt hire either - for almost all jobs they are massively over qualified - hire an immegrant instead - ability to do the job, or even understand what the job is, is clearly secondary in the eyes of british employers to how little they can get away with paying.
