We should be choosier about who we let in, English skills, relevant and needed work skills, assets and cultural fit should all be boxes that must be ticked for residency.

I can't think of any other assets which would be desirable. I couldn't care less about cultural fit. What is the NZ culture anyway? Rugby and drinking? Because I certainly don't fit into that and I was born here.
