Prime Minister Encourages Indian Students to Britain

Ahead his visit to India next week, Prime Minister David Cameron has urged Indian students to come to the UK to study. After changes to visa restrictions the number of Indian students in Britain is down a quarter and there are concerns that the government's tough rhetoric on immigration has contributed to this drop.

Speaking to India's Sunrise TV, Mr Cameron emphasised that the changes to the visa system are not as strict as often thought and that Britain is still eager for international students to come to study:

"The fact is today, as we stand, and this is going to be the case going forward, there is no limit on the number of students who can come from India to study at British universities, no limit at all. All you need is a basic English qualification and a place at a British university. And what's more, after you've left a British university, if you can get a graduate-level job there is no limit to the amount of people who can stay and work, or the time that they can stay at work."

David Cameron's Aussie Accent

During a speech last night, British Prime Minister David Cameron did an impersonation of his Australian counterpart that was so bad it has made international news.

At the annual Lord Mayor's Banquet in London, Cameron recounted how Australian PM Julia Gillard described their recent meeting as "good news for Sheilas everywhere". Despite admitting before hand "I can't quite do the accent", the impression got a big laugh and even applause from the audience in the hall. However, over night the Australian press has picked up on it and are not quite as kind.

The Sydney Morning Herald described the impersonation as "bizarre", whilst an article on Australian news site News.com.au, called it "perhaps one of the worst Aussie accents in history", and even claimed that "it's so bad it could cause a diplomatic row".

Watch the clip below to judge for yourself quite how good or bad David Cameron's Aussie accent is.
