Theresa May: Ihre Brexit-Strategie beruht auf zehn Fehlkalkulationen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Ihr mangelndes Verständnis und ihre Geringschätzung für die innereuropäischen Mechanismen rächt sich nun.

Wer an Europa im Wesentlichen nur feine französische Weine (und diese schon üppig zum Mittagessen) schätzt, dem fehlt in Sachen Brexit-Verhandlungen die Bodenhaftung.

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.

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.

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.

Deported woman's family say Amber Rudd lacks compassion | UK news | The Guardian
Joanna Cherry QC MP said: “This case is another example of the inability of the Home Office to take account of special or compassionate circumstances when required and the human cost of the inflexibility of the UK’s immigration rules. This approach suggests relentless prioritising of the net migration target against a sensible and humane approach to individual cases.

“Following the recent outcome of the MM Case in the supreme court, concerning the particularly harsh spouse visa rules, this action in relation to Mrs Clennell further places the Home Office’s respect for family life under question.” Joanna Cherry QC MP said: “This case is another example of the inability of the Home Office to take account of special or compassionate circumstances when required and the human cost of the inflexibility of the UK’s immigration rules.

Britons living in the EU face Brexit backlash, leaked paper warns | Politics | The Guardian
Jeremy Corbyn has condemned Theresa May’s “Hunger Games approach to Brexit” after a document obtained by the Guardian warned that British nationals living on the continent could expect a backlash as a consequence of the government’s treatment of foreigners since the EU referendum.

The leaked EU assessment of the legal impact of Britain’s withdrawal says the 1.2 million Britons living in the EU could pay a penalty for the prime minister’s failure to offer a secure future for EU nationals in the UK.

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.

Teacher shortages fuelled by Brexit threat to EU nationals | Education | The Guardian
Department for Education figures show that close to 5,000 teachers from EU countries qualified to teach last year, up from just over 2,000 in 2010. The largest numbers came from Spain, Greece, Poland and Romania. The number from Greece has shot up more than sixfold – from 88 to 572 – since 2010. 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. There were not enough trainee teachers starting courses this September in three-quarters of subjects, with maths, physics, design and technology, computing and business studies all falling.

Meet the teachers, charity workers, NHS staff and scientists Theresa May wants to kick out of Britain | Home News | News | The Independent
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.
