Britain is one of worst places in western Europe for asylum seekers | UK news | The Guardian
Britain is one of the worst destinations for people seeking asylum in western Europe, according to a Guardian analysis of policies, data and reports of the conditions faced by the record recent influx of new arrivals.

At the start of a year-long project with three other newspapers on Europe’s refugee crisis, the Guardian has analysed the experience of refugees and asylum seekers in the European Union’s big five nations – the UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy – and found the conditions in Britain do not compare well.
Only Italy, on the frontline of hundreds of thousands of people crossing the Mediterranean, fares worse. &! https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/mar/01/how-britain-hard-stance-refugees-reshaping-european-policy

Senior MPs accused of damaging UK with divisive rhetoric | Politics | The Guardian
Senior government ministers including Amber Rudd and Jeremy Hunt are damaging the UK’s standing in the world with their divisive rhetoric, the chair of the Commons Brexit committee, Hilary Benn, has said. [...] Indicating that such language could influence negotiations with the EU, Benn said making pronouncements about what the government would achieve from its discussions would harden attitudes towards the UK among European politicians and officials. [...] “When I reflect upon a certain week in Birmingham in the autumn, where people of a particular political party gathered and made speeches, I thought that was a disastrous week for Britain’s reputation in the world. Absolutely disastrous.

Campaign issues cultural ‘call to arms’ to boost arts learning in England | Culture | The Guardian
A generation of young people will be “intellectually poorer, emotionally more limited, and socially more isolated” unless they are allowed access to a full range of arts and culture. [...] Serota said experience of art and culture in school can shape all lives. “Creativity is ... one of the essential ingredients of a rich and tolerant society and of personal and national identity. It should be one of the cornerstones of education, not an option or an afterthought and we should be celebrating all kinds of intelligence and intuition, not creating hierarchies within the disciplines of the mind,” he said.

A hard truth for Leave voters: Brexit means big government
Britain has seen a renaissance in jobs since 2013, of that there is no doubt. But most of those extra jobs were among the self-employed or fell into categories that can only be described as insecure and low-paid. When companies finally took the plunge and advertised full-time jobs from 2014 onwards, around a third went to migrants. [...] It is this mostly older group of workers across the developed world, worried about their pay, pensions and conditions of employment, that want to slam the brakes on globalisation and reject the remedy proposed by big business: greater labour-market flexibility and only limited job protections. [ Globalisation as a great rebalancing of the world economy between the west and the rest (BRIC and co) ] [...] Only government can provide the cure, with a commitment to invest where the private sector cannot or will not go.

Leave Campaign, so far, has failed to assure voters that we get through the quiet possible tubulences and uncertainty unharmed severely after 1-2 years.

Panama Papers Warum der Zynismus, mit dem die Leaks vielfach aufgenommen wurden, die falsche Reaktion auf die Enthüllungen ist [...] So wie es keine Neuigkeit ist, dass die globale Finanzelite sich eine juridisch-ökonomische Parallelwelt geschaffen hat. [...] Dennoch ist der fatalistische Zynismus, mit dem die Leaks vielerorts aufgenommen wurden, nicht nur falsch, sondern sogar gefährlich. Aus zwei Gründen: zum einen, weil der Zynismus eine Sprache ist, die der Neoliberalismus perfekt beherrscht. „Der Zyniker“, so schreibt etwa der Philosoph Franco Berardi, „ist ein leichter Schläfer: Er schläft traumlos und wacht auf, sobald die Macht ihn ruft.“ Wer sich in solcher Abgeklärtheit einrichtet, muss sich nicht wundern, wenn am Ende alles so bleibt, wie es ist.

Piketty: EU should welcome one million immigrants a year
"The European Union has the capacity to absorb a large flow of migrants, one million per year in terms of inflow net of outflow," he said.
"This is exactly what we had between 2000 and 2010 and this was working in the sense that unemployment was being reduced.
"The problem is - with the austerity policies and with the recession - now we are in a situation where it's very difficult in particular with southern Europe, with the terrible economic situation that we have created there in particular." [...] The population of the EU has only risen by 0.2% a year since 1995, he argues, compared to 1.2% for the world's population over the same period.
According to Eurostat, the official statistical arm of the European Commission, a total of 3.4 million people came to the EU during 2013. Some 2.8 million left, leaving a net immigration figure of around 600,000. [S]low growth [...] exacerbated not just by a lack of immigration but also by austerity policies aimed at reducing public expenditure. [EU in recession 2011 forward]

IS in Europe: The race to the death
The BBC's Panorama programme has seen the transcripts of some important interrogations carried out by France's equivalent of MI5, the DGSI. They reveal valuable details about the tactics used by Abaaoud to train and equip IS fighters in Europe. [...] Nicolas Moreau was one them. He was arrested in 2015 having left Nantes to fight jihad in Syria in 2014.
He, like many IS recruits, was a former petty criminal who had converted to Islam in prison and become disillusioned with life in France.
He told his interrogators he couldn't stand the "injustice" and "couldn't see any future in this country".
He went on to provide valuable information about IS's external operations department known as Amni, meaning "security", that sends hand-picked trained fighters back to Europe to inflict death and destruction on their homelands.
"Each gets 50,000 euros (£40,000) to mount an attack," Moreau said.

Migrants break down Macedonia fence on Greek border - BBC News
Macedonian police have fired tear gas at a crowd of migrants who destroyed a barbed-wire fence on the Greek border using a makeshift battering ram. [...] [ From Commentary: ] But part of the EU's problem is that events on the ground are moving faster than the policies are being implemented. [ Defining moment of Europe. History. And Europe is failing the world. The people of Europe, are failing the world. ] [...] Individual countries like Sweden, Denmark and Belgium have broken ranks and imposed their own border checks. Others have failed to take in refugees. Angela Merkel pointed her finger squarely at Austria, saying its decision to accept just 80 refugees a day had led to today's problems in Greece. Europe's leaders have a chance to restore some unity at another crisis summit in a week's time. But it may be events on Greece's borders that dictate what happens.

In April, new immigration laws will see tens of thousands of skilled workers deported from the UK [...] The Government has responded to a petition urging it to scrap a new £35,000 pay threshold on non-EU workers, calling it a “modest” contribution to cut net migration to Britain. Yet the Government’s own analysis estimates the measure will cost up to £575 million to the taxpayer in the first year alone, and it has sparked a public outcry from the tens of thousands of people set to be affected. [...] employers have had since April 2011 to prepare. //&! From stop35k.org/#!blank/c1enr - "Tier 2 General Skilled Workers who do not make £35,000 salary or who have been in the UK for 6 years, will need to leave or be deported. The Home Office estimates this will cost taxpayers between £181million and £575million" [...] Other proposed legislation is to prevent people from EEA to work here if they do not earn 30k/y or more.

British people think their media is the most biased and right-wing in Europe - and they're probably right | Voices | The Independent
Just two individuals - Rupert Murdoch and Lord Rothermere - controlled a staggering 52.2 per cent of online and print national news publications in the UK in 2013 [...] All of these newspapers either backed the Conservatives or Ukip in the most recent election and are all considered traditional right-wing publications. If you add up the readership of these right-wing newspapers, they account for a staggering 69 per cent of national newspaper readership in Britain in 2013. Left Foot Forward concluded their analysis by stating that “over three quarters (77.8 per cent) of the press is owned by a handful of billionaires.”

Pando: At what point is the convenience of technology outweighed by the constant stress?
Yesterday, I wrote about new proposals to allow the government to trawl the social media accounts of visa applicants before allowing or denying entry to the US.  Specifically, I wrote about my relief, as a visa-carrying foreign worker, at having deleted my social media accounts last year. For all the myriad reasons the government might declare me unworthy of living here -- particularly under President Trump -- at least an old dumb tweet won’t be one of them. [...] Connected technology was supposed to make our lives easier. And of course it has, in countless ways. But what it doesn’t seem to have done is made our lives less stressful...

Flüchtlingslager bei Dünkirchen: Dagegen ist der "Dschungel" luxuriös - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Räumung des illegalen Flüchtlingslagers in Calais steht bevor. Doch neben dem "Dschungel" gibt es am Ärmelkanal noch weitere Lager - und dort sind die Zustände noch schlimmer. [...] Im Flüchtlingslager Grande-Synthe am Rand der französischen Hafenstadt Dünkirchen leben derzeit etwa 1300 bis 1500 Menschen, rund 80 Prozent von ihnen sind Kurden oder Iraker. Das jedenfalls schätzt Raphaël Etcheberry, der hier seit anderthalb Monaten für die Hilfsorganisation Ärzte ohne Grenzen (MSF) arbeitet. Doch während das Flüchtlingslager "Dschungel" am Rand von Calais im Zentrum des öffentlichen Interesses steht, nimmt die Welt vom 40 Kilometer entfernten Grande-Synthe kaum Notiz. Dabei sind die Zustände noch katastrophaler. Wer sich hier umsieht, könnte bezweifeln, dass er sich in Mitteleuropa befindet. [...] Pro Nacht schaffen es zehn nach Großbritannien

EU referendum: Half-forgotten memories of Boris - BBC News
Two, Mr Johnson's decision can only serve to sharpen the fundamental divisions which are prevalent within the Conservative Party. As I have noted ad nauseam, political parties are coalitions of the more or less willing, generally held together by a wider cause - that cause usually being the desire to secure power. [...] But comparable calculations apply to other politicians. Senior Tories have to weigh their own prospects in the balance. That applies amply to Boris Johnson who, of course, harbours leadership ambitions.

'Absurd' visa rules on income force UK citizens into exile, court told | UK news | The Guardian
UK citizens are being forced into exile by the Home Office’s “irrational and absurd” minimum-income visa requirements, with some couples having no hope of ever being able to live together in Britain, the supreme court has heard. UK nationals must earn more than £18,600 to bring over a non-EU spouse, rising to £22,400 if they have a child who does not have British citizenship, and by an additional £2,400 for each subsequent child. Seven supreme court justices including the court’s deputy president, Lady Hale, will decide after a three-day hearing whether the rules contravene article 8 of the European convention on human rights, covering respect for private and family life. [...] the law barred up to 47% of the working British population from living with a non-EU spouse in their home country.

[ symptom! offer of Brexit vote was election move out of fear, UKIP gains ] Far from the unfounded headlines about EU migrants grabbing British jobs, record numbers of British citizens are in work too [...] the quarterly labour market survey – showed that record numbers of British citizens were in work too. Indeed, 1 million more Britons are in work and 850,000 more Europeans are working in Britain since David Cameron became prime minister. [...] Britain should not be seen as a sudden, recent mass invasion to be necessarily feared by every British worker. It is now a fact of life that Britain has been a country of net mass migration every year for the past 20 years. [...] European migrants are not a drain on Britain’s finances; what is more, they actually pay in more in taxes than they take out in state benefits.

UK trade deficit widens further as exports suffer | Business | The Guardian
Nevertheless, the UK’s goods trade gap with the rest of the world widened by £1.9bn to a record high of £125bn in 2015. Howard Archer, chief UK economist at IHS Global Insight, said: “UK exports have clearly struggled in recent months, as they have been hampered by sterling’s overall strength in 2015, particularly against the euro, and moderate global demand. [...] Recent declines in the value of sterling are expected to support exports sales, though the deteriorating global situation could mitigate against an improved exchange rate. [...] “Nonetheless, any progress in reducing the trade deficit is likely to be extremely slow in the near term, leaving the recovery reliant on domestic demand.” [...] [ you can lower your corp tax, but if your country is shitty in business environment ie infrastructure and employee qualifications and immigration ... nobody wants to do business ]

Rising costs put third of Britain’s curry houses at risk of closure | Life and style | The Guardian
Immigration restrictions are now the biggest problem faced by curry restaurateurs. David Cameron last year unveiled new measures to “significantly reduce” non-EU migration, a move that raised fresh fears about the businesses’ ability to bring in chefs. Crucially, from April, restaurants that want to employ a chef from outside the EU will have to pay a minimum salary of £35,000 – or £29,750 with accommodation and food – in order for their employees to qualify for visas.

Bolivia's second-largest lake dries up and may be gone forever, lost to climate change | World news | The Guardian
Lake Poopó was officially declared evaporated in December. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people have lost their livelihoods and gone. High on Bolivia’s semi-arid Andean plains at 3,700 metres (more than 12,000 feet) and long subject to climatic whims, the shallow saline lake has essentially dried up before only to rebound to twice the area of Los Angeles. But recovery may no longer be possible, scientists say. “This is a picture of the future of climate change,” says Dirk Hoffman, a German glaciologist who studies how rising temperatures from the burning of fossil fuels has accelerated glacial melting in Bolivia. As Andean glaciers disappear, so do the sources of Poopó’s water.

Why is the pound falling so sharply? - BBC News
Weak economic data is casting doubt on the future performance of the UK economy, with inflation persistently well below the Bank of England's 2% target and earnings growth slowing down from a six-year high. Earlier this month, figures for November showed that UK industrial output had suffered its sharpest decline since 2013. Looking further ahead, investors are worried about the outcome of a referendum on the UK's continued membership of the EU. As Andy Scott of foreign exchange services firm HiFX put it: "Concerns over the UK economy and the risk of a Brexit look likely to continue to haunt sterling." Traders are also generally more risk-averse in the light of the global turmoil caused by Chinese market problems and falling oil prices, which makes them reluctant to buck sterling's downward trend.

Chris Grayling, the Tory Leader of the House, announced that it would be a “disaster” for Britain to stay in the European Union under present terms. But the earth didn't exactly stop spinning. So far, none of the “big beasts” of the UK Cabinet – London Mayor Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Teresa May, or the former Education Secretary Michael Gove – have shown much eagerness to join.

Why should Rachel Watt have to sleep in her wheelchair? | Frances Ryan | Opinion | The Guardian
This is the hidden face of Britain’s social care crisis: disabled people left without help in their own homes. Read most coverage of the cuts to social care and it is easy to believe the crisis solely affects older people. According to research by Scope, 83% of disabled people in this country are now living without sufficient hours in their care package. That means being unable to get out of the house or waiting 14 hours to go to the toilet. This is what happens when austerity strips £4.6bn from social care spending in five years. As the government squeezes local authorities, social care has been left with a “funding gap” – a gaping wound, shall we say – that is growing by £700m a year. The King’s Fund thinktank has told the Guardian that the financial prospects for Britain’s social care system in 2016 “could not be worse”. [...] The biggest trick the government can play is the myth that any of this is inevitable. [...] It is the political choice[.]

Brexit: the golden opportunity that could become Sturgeon’s nightmare | Colin Kidd | Opinion | The Guardian
Paradoxically, Scotland has seemed on the brink of independence ever since losing the referendum. The prime minister’s ungracious, Ukip-appeasing speech on the morning after the vote proved a massive turnoff, especially for conscience-stricken no-voting doubters, to whom it sounded like undiluted English nationalism. Cameron’s own goal contributed to a phenomenal surge of support for the SNP, which since the 2015 general election holds 56 of Scotland’s 59 seats at Westminster. Given a majority on that scale, independence would appear to be there for the taking.

[ IDEOLOGICAL CAREER POLITICIANS MOVE: cut training budget (bursaries) in 2010 (together with lib dems), and 5 years later turn it into student loan public, with that move we create more places to learn. lol! conning way. yeah but also move the item off the public's balance sheet. ] [ http://bit.ly/1LPhnMa http://bit.ly/1mZySRj http://bit.ly/1TesYGF http://ind.pn/1JNyGPn http://bit.ly/1WcXHFL ] >> A Department of Health spokesman said: "The MAC is currently reviewing the shortage occupation list. Staffing is a priority and there are already more than 8,500 more nurses on our wards since 2010 and 50,000 more nurses in training.

Linking junior doctors and terror is cheap politics | Barbara Ellen | Opinion | The Guardian
[ Tories, nasty party at it again; spin and positioning - to use something to put someone or something in a bad light. distract. smoking gun and mirrors. avoid. change direction and tone of discussion or debate. ] Now questions are being raised about political interference, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron calling it an attempt to “politicise the Paris terror attack” and the “lowest politics” he’d seen in years. Keogh and the Department of Health say that it was “entirely appropriate” that they communicate with each other and co-ordinate a response. Communication is generally a very good thing, co-ordination, in this case, not so much. Indeed, some might say that this is desperate stuff, an overt attempt to stir up public fear and animosity towards striking medics.
