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).

Biggest Brexit donor urges May to guarantee rights of EU nationals | Politics | The Guardian
Senior Leave backers express concern over approach to immigration and say students should be free to come to UK [...] “People who are doing great jobs in this country are feeling insecure and I think it would be really good for those people to have the comfort that we are not going to boot them out in 18 months’ time,” he told the Observer. “I just think we should make the gesture, full stop. I don’t think there should be a quid pro quo, I just think we should make the gesture. They would look pretty churlish if they didn’t [reciprocate by guaranteeing the status of UK nationals in the EU].”

His intervention comes after a week in which Brussels officials expressed concern over reaching a deal on the status of EU nationals in the UK. Brussels is insisting that they are allowed to keep all their rights, including access to healthcare and the right to bring a spouse to the UK.

Passport checks for patients is an abandonment of NHS principles | Zoe Stewart | Opinion | The Guardian
Dena Bryant, a lifelong resident of Grantham, had her eligibility for care at her local hospital questioned by a nurse who justified her questioning because Bryant was “not white” and did not “look English”.

The reality is that these policies represent yet another instance of the government attempting to blame migrants for the devastating impact of their austerity agenda. [...] The relationship between the doctor or health professional and a patient relies on respect and trust. A policy that demands we verify eligibility and report ineligible patients prioritises money over care, and jeopardises the relationship between a patient and their care provider.

Her comments come as the hospitality sector this week became the first major UK industry to set out a plan to reduce its dependence on EU workers. Without future EU migration, the British Hospitality Association said, hotels, restaurants and others faced a recruitment crisis, with upwards of 60,000 workers per year needed in addition to the ongoing recruitment of 200,000 workers to replace churn.

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.

Ukip: Britain should be able to send back 'beggars or criminals' from EU | Politics | The Guardian
The UK should have the right not to let EU citizens stay if they “do not work, never pay taxes or are beggars or criminals”, a senior Ukip spokesman has said.

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.

Care contracts cancelled at 95 UK councils in funding squeeze | Society | The Guardian
Ninety-five UK councils have had home care contracts cancelled by private companies struggling to deliver services on the funding offered, an investigation has found.

As a result, a quarter of the UK’s 2,500 home care providers were at risk of insolvency, and almost 70 had closed down in the past three months, according to the BBC’s Panorama programme.

The agencies – which provide help for people living independently at home – also struggled to recruit and retain staff, Panorama reported.

One home care company – Cymorth Llaw in Bangor, Wales – was forced to hand back its contract with Conwy council because it felt unable to provide adequate care with the council’s funding offer of £15 an hour. Ken Hogg, its co-director, told the programme: “We didn’t think we could do it for the money – it was as simple as that.”

Record numbers of EU nurses quit NHS | Society | The Guardian
The number of EU nationals registering as nurses in England has dropped by 92% since the Brexit referendum in June, and a record number are quitting the NHS, it can be revealed. [...] The haemorrhaging of foreign staff is being blamed by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) on the failure of the government to provide EU nationals in the UK with any security about their future. May has claimed that Britain cannot act unilaterally to guarantee residency as it would weaken her hand in the coming article 50 negotiations over Brexit.

Janet Davies, chief executive and general secretary of the RCN, said the government’s tactic was backfiring, and now threatened the sustainability of the health service.

Charities referring rough sleepers to immigration enforcement teams | Society | The Guardian
Leading homelessness charities whose remit is to protect vulnerable rough sleepers have been passing information about some of them to the Home Office, leading to their removal from the UK.

A report from Corporate Watch, The Round Up, reveals concerns about homelessness charities’ links to immigration enforcement and comes at a time of increasing disquiet about the involvement of landlords, schools and the NHS with immigration enforcement. Civil liberties campaigners have accused the government of having a toxic “border on every street” policy.

EU students told health insurance 'just a technicality', after German woman threatened with removal | UK news | The Guardian
Now, in a significant development the Home Office says this will not be acted upon.

“EU citizens will not be removed from the UK or refused entry solely because they do not have comprehensive sickness insurance,” said a spokesman.
The categorical assurance is a departure from previous Home Office statements. It will assuage growing fears among students and other categories of EU nationals including stay-at-home parents that they were at risk of removal for not complying with a hitherto little-known requirement to have “comprehensive sickness insurance” (CSI) to qualify for residency in the UK. [...] There is no known case of the Home Office enforcing the CSI rule even though there are more than 120,000 EU students in the UK.

Scottish woman and French husband quit UK over Brexit | World news | The Guardian
A Scottish woman and her French scientist husband have decided to quit the UK because of Brexit after his application for permanent residency was rejected by the Home Office, despite him working in the country for more than 20 years.

Emma Pollet said the family had not taken the decision lightly, but were not confident their rights would be protected after Britain left the EU. [...] The permanent residency card was designed for non-EU citizens coming to the UK to live and is not required by law for any EU citizen living in the country.

However, in the absence of any guarantees from the government, many EU citizens have seen it as a route to establish their legal right to remain in the country post-Brexit.

The BMA’s findings are based on a survey it undertook of 1,193 EEA doctors working in the UK. When asked if they were thinking about leaving the UK following last year’s referendum vote, 500 (42%) said yes, 309 (26%) said no, 278 (23%) were unsure, while the other 106 did not answer. [...] “While thousands of overseas and EU doctors work across the UK to provide the best possible care for patients, many from the EU are left feeling unwelcome and uncertain about whether they and their families will have the right to live and work in the UK after Brexit,” said Porter. European doctors feel significantly less appreciated by the UK government now than before the referendum. Their average rating on that score has fallen from seven out of ten before the vote to leave the EU to less than four out of ten now. & less committed to stay.

[ one particular NHS already breaking EU overtime work directive ] Areas of equality law to be examined include measures to guarantee equal pay, protection for part-time workers and during pregnancy, and combating so-called intersectional discrimination, where someone faces potential disadvantage for not just their gender but another area, for example race or religion. [...] While the government had promised to protect equality and the rights of workers following departure from the EU, Smethers said, the concern was that some protections could be lost almost inadvertently amid wider changes. [...] “The real worry we’ve got is that those kind of assurances are actually quite superficial, and they are probably a second order commitment compared to the need to secure a competitive economy, and how we compete if we’re outside the trading bloc,” Smethers said. &!

Work permits at heart of UK’s Brexit immigration control plan
Pro-Brexit politicians want an end to free movement and the introduction of a work permit system, with the government having the power to decide how many EU citizens would be allowed into Britain each year to take up a job offer. They also want restrictions on welfare payments. Crucially, Amber Rudd, home secretary and a former Remain supporter, is thought to back the work permit plan while Mrs May’s allies say she is also minded to endorse the idea. [...]

This, he added, would also avoid the situation whereby the government tried to second-guess the market with sector-by-sector allocations of work permits, causing inevitable labour shortages. Mr Hague believes immigration would fall because EU workers would no longer qualify for most benefits. [...]

“Given that Theresa May has effectively ruled out a points-based system, the government is clearly working towards a work permit scheme for highly skilled migrants. But what worries me is whether that is going to be flexible enough to suit the needs of the market,” Ms Roche said.

Yet, despite the influx, the DfE has failed to hit necessary recruitment levels for a fifth year in a row, it was revealed last week.

The unusual move happened after May came under criticism for her role in the EU vote in two new books. //&! https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/sep/25/theresa-may-allies-reject-claim-role-eu-referendum-campaign

Poles on Brexit: 'I don't think many will stay. Life in Britain is tough' | World news | The Guardian
“Many of them are going to go back anyway,” she said. “The Polish government has introduced a £100 child benefit scheme regardless of earnings to get people to stay ... And life in Britain is tough. There is overpopulation. Train tickets are really expensive which makes it all much harder. Social mobility is not great. State education is not great. I don’t think a lot of people will stay. They might decide to go elsewhere.”

Theresa May accused of treating EU migrants as a pawn in Brexit talks | Politics | The Guardian
The home secretary is facing intense political pressure to give cast iron assurance that the rights of EU migrants to remain in the UK would not be used as a bargaining chip in any future Brexit talks with the European Union.

Theresa May was accused of treating millions of EU citizens as a pawn in a wider Brexit negotiation. She said it was her intention that EU citizens should remain but said their rights would be a factor in any talks.

Tories urged to offer assurances to EU citizens living in UK

The British government, including May, has been reluctant to give guarantees for EU citizens because it has yet to be given parallel assurances about the rights of UK citizens in the EU.

German politicians propose offering young Britons dual citizenship | World news | The Guardian
“Let’s offer it to the young Britons living in Germany, Italy or France so that they can remain EU citizens,” Gabriel said at a meeting in Berlin of his centre-left Social Democratic party.

“It’s a good sign that the youth of Great Britain are more clever than their bizarre political elite,” Gabriel continued. “For that reason we can’t raise our drawbridge on them. We have to think now about what we can offer Great Britain’s younger generation.”

EU tells Swiss no single market access if no free movement of citizens | World news | The Guardian
A British Influence poll showed a majority of UK citizens are heavily opposed to the ejection of EU citizens from the UK.

UK politicians will argue they cannot make guarantees about the status of EU migrants in the UK until similar guarantees are made by the EU about the status of Britons living there, or they would be unilaterally throwing away one of their few negotiating cards.

European referendum: Pupils 'fear being forced out'
David Cameron has told MPs that EU nationals' rights are guaranteed while Britain remains in the EU. And he stressed that those in the Leave campaign also wanted to guarantee the rights of those working and studying in Britain. "But," he added, "we can't say that now, we have to say that as part of the negotiation that will shortly take place." //&! The leave campaign insists EU nationals already in Britain would be able to stay – but immigration lawyers say it’s not so simple - bit.ly/28UaACJ - Vienna convention has not been tested and would have to be interpreted by the courts [...] an inevitable consequence of the Brexit campaign is that people will need new documentary evidence of their right to remain [residency test]. [...] Points system could be applied to EEA residents already living here. [...] [keep P60's] [solving the heap of shit needs new law].

Immigration points-based systems compared

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!

The economics of Brexit – Politics Weekly podcast
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.

even if we leave, Brussels will say that we still have to have free movement of people (EEA) to access European Common Market, like Norway and Switzerland. And Norway pays £140 per head per year to Brussels, to have access to European Common Market! [...] and then we don't even have a voice in Brussels. [...] for voters it's balance of risks on both sides of the coin [...] //&! MORE - youtu.be/-PIi1qVs7Yo - more federal europe in 2025, stagnant europe, more inflow of people pained by unemployment in their homecountry. Called the "pull factor." And long, too long trade deal negotiations that is Europe doing ie Italy is blocking one w Australia.
