Points Based System Immigration - All contractor staff

Just hearing yet another "Points Based System" quote. Not wanting to enter into the snake pit that is politics or immigration, but I do wonder how such systems will be implemented without contractor workforces. The existing PBS system and other Home Office projects were developed due to their unrealistic demands (long hours including weekends and night shift) using contractors [like me]. Normal employees avoided these projects and often refused to work the extra hours for little reward. Unlike other systems this work cannot be outsourced to Indian companies due to the nature of the data.
