London's  Mayor Boris Johnson says he will use his naming as an Honorary Australian of the Year in the United Kingdom to push for easier immigration between Australia and the United Kingdom.

He is so right to push this point.

Mr Johnson says he is a great admirer of Australian's energy and get up and go and wants London to import as much of Australia's "outgoingness" as possible.

He said it was ludicrous that Australians face exorbitant red tape to work in London and the United Kingdom.

"There should be the same reciprocal rights between the UK and Australia as there is between the UK and Slovenia or any of the 27 European Union countries," Mr Johnson said at a black tie function at Australia House.
