UK's low pay culture traps people in poorly paid jobs, study finds | Society | The Guardian
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-41669991 - high tech, low life. // in-work poverty, gini coefficient takes into account pensioners. // “Britain has one of the highest proportions of low-paid work in the developed world. And while three-quarters of low-paid workers did manage to move into higher-paying roles at some point over the past decade, the vast majority couldn’t sustain that progress. This lack of pay progress can have a huge scarring effect on people’s lifetime living standards. [...] “Britain’s flexible workforce gives us global economic advantage but a two-tier labour market is now exacting too high a social price.

Home Office volunteers no data on EU migrants in work | UK news | The Guardian
UK was lax on applying EU rules. James O'Brien hypothesis is, that it would cost more than it would help (under Labour). When immigration was a non-issue publicly. But Cameron and Co had no balls, made risk analysis, thought risk of Brexit is low low low, thus not bring it up in times of Austerity to spend money on enforcig those rules (eg keeping count and enforcing controls and deportation, and seeking out EU rough sleepers working black market for constucting and stuff).

Why exporting isn't just about shipping - BBC News
Barriers to services trade have proved to be harder to deal with.
They come in the form of regulation - not the tariffs or taxes that impinge on commerce in goods. [...] So liberalising services trade is more complicated than it is for goods. [...] The World Trade Organization's rulebook includes something called the General Agreement on Trade in Services, or GATS.
WTO member countries have made commitments during past negotiations about the extent to which they allow foreign suppliers access to their services markets. These vary from country to country and are listed in "schedules" attached to the agreement. [...] EU won't make commitments on allowing foreign suppliers to provide some key publicly funded services, including health and education.

PM suggests free movement extension - BBC News
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/apr/04/free-movement-will-go-on-in-transition-after-brexit-theresa-may - EU free movement into the UK could be extended after Brexit, Theresa May has suggested.
The prime minister said there would be an "implementation" phase once an exit deal had been struck, with business and governments needing a "period of time" to adjust to the new rules.
The government insists Brexit will allow the UK to control its borders.
Mrs May was pressed on what would happen if there was a transitional phase after a deal is reached.
BBC deputy political editor John Pienaar says the comments "clearly left open the possibility of free movement continuing, at least temporarily".

Record number of EU citizens quit working in NHS last year | Politics | The Guardian
[ on paper, 2nd class citizen ] The figures, compiled by NHS Digital, prompted medical leaders to call for more reassurances to European workers about their future in the UK. A total of 17,197 EU staff, including nurses and doctors, left their posts in 2016, compared with 13,321 in 2015 and 11,222 for 11 months in 2014.

Even though EU staff numbers rose across the period analysed, experts fear the number of people leaving is the more significant trend.

Gerard Batten, an MEP with responsibility for Ukip’s Brexit policy, suggested on Monday that the UK should have the discretion to refuse some EU citizens the right to stay and backed Theresa May’s decision not to give any guarantees without reciprocal deals from other EU countries. [...] Pressed about EU citizens, Batten suggested the UK should have the right to decline to keep some people.

'Northern powerhouse' depends on productivity not rail links: thinktank | Business | The Guardian
In this post-referendum vacuum, Carney alone can't save the UK economy - Getting productivity going again will require more investment in innovation and our universities. It means more help for businesses that want to update their production lines, overhaul their IT systems or retrain their staff. Productivity will only improve if the UK addresses its skills shortages with sensible immigration policies and with better training. In an age of economic insecurity, training is key if the march of the robots is not to further exacerbate inequality.

It not only ignores history, social institutions, and heritage, it diminishes and often dismisses them. Arguments rooted in economic efficiency cannot trump (if you’ll pardon our using that term) appeals to emotion. ( via https://redd.it/4qe6cp )

Immigration points-based systems compared
The campaign to get Britain out of the EU has called for an Australian-style, points-based immigration system to be applied to all migrant workers - not just those from outside the EU. So how does the UK's system - also based on points - differ from those of other countries? //&!

Boris Johnson breaks silence to set out leadership platform
Johnson pledges points-based immigration system and continued UK-EU trade [...] Johnson claimed Britain will be able to introduce a points-based immigration system while maintaining access to the European single market. [...] “There will still be intense and intensifying European cooperation and partnership in a huge number of fields: the arts, the sciences, the universities, and on improving the environment. “EU citizens living in this country will have their rights fully protected, and the same goes for British citizens living in the EU. [...] “Yes, the Government will be able to take back democratic control of immigration policy, with a balanced and humane points-based system to suit the needs of business and industry. //&! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/26/i-cannot-stress-too-much-that-britain-is-part-of-europe--and-alw/

Firms plan to quit UK as City braces for more post-Brexit losses | Business | The Guardian
The IoD said a quarter of the members polled in a survey were putting hiring plans on hold, while 5% said they were set to make workers redundant. Nearly two-thirds of those polled said the outcome of the referendum was negative for their business. One in five respondents, out of a poll of more than 1,000 business leaders, were considering moving some of their operations outside of the UK. //&!

‘The City’, by Tony Norfield - Banking as seen from the belly of the beast
[ current account deficit only affordable (thus also living standards) bc of City of London ] This is a man who writes without irony about “financial parasitism”. In The City: London and the Global Power of Finance, he seeks to document just how the UK and the US extract their pound of flesh from the rest of the world by dominating the financial flows that make international trade possible.

He argues that London’s leading role in foreign exchange trading, derivatives and overseas lending is an extension of its imperialist past. Creating complex financial products and charging for them has enabled the sector to requisition for the UK and London — and, of course, bankers themselves — a disproportionate share of the benefits of global trade. [...] [ extracting value from around the world channelling it back ] &! Novara Media interview - bit.ly/297c6D3

CURRENT ACCOUNT DEFICIT ON THE BALANCE OF PAYMENTS: THE MOST DAMNING STATISTIC!
If you want to understand how an economy is performing and how sustainable its economic growth then look at the current account balance. Officially it is often ignored and there are attempts to play down its significance. After all it is always only just a few years away from an election so the very short term is considered much more important than the long term strength and economic health of the economy. Dire straits is not an underestimate of the current damaged state of the UK economy and indeed many other western economies.

Inside Story - What's the future of the UK in the wake of Brexit? - YouTube
Felt left behind! proxy protest vote. Dog whistle racism/xenophobia. World of post-fact politics and post-fact campaigning! Still a protest vote vs the elite and establishment always promised Disneyland. Reclaiming democracy at home, from bureaucracy, unelected officials, unaccountable ones, in Brussels. Young voters; 3 in 10 voted. Scewed the result somewhat. This is a warning to mainstream parties around the western world. Politics is being hollowed out, voters go to either extremes as alternative!

Government Faces Labour Questions Over Universal Credit Risks
documents obtained under freedom of information showed a risk of fraudulent activity and cyberattacks. [...] It was finally disclosed this month by the department after a freedom of information request by John Slater, a former IT project manager, and Tony Collins, an investigative journalist, following a four-year legal battle. [...] The documents, which date from 2012, contain a line in which parts of the project are described as “pushing above the programme funding envelope”. They also raise concerns that the programme lacks a “robust framework of assurances”, which means “rework” may be needed if elements of the project are “not fit for purpose”. Fears over staffing are described, with concerns over “skilled staff resources not in the right place at the right time”. [...] “shocking” to see “essential considerations” like fraud and cyber security not being “at the core of [UC]” from the start.

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. [ economic forecasts/predictions are Wall Streets cottage industry ] Brexit for sure would throw Osbornes plan for a surplus in 2020. ... brexit is about less regulation free trade low tariffs, 'get off the back of our City [London bank regulation]' [low tax, higher pay] George Osborne ... // banks have not voiced their voice loudly because that would be seen by people who bailed them out to tune of doubling the deficit, and still own bank shares ie loyds. it could be seen disingenuous, outrageous, as we are still in doldrums, paying off their debt, and suffering through austerity where the most vulnerable are cut away from society.
