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.

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.

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.”

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.

As a Tory MP, I urge Theresa May to guarantee the status of EU nationals | Stephen Crabb | Opinion | The Guardian
In fact, no minister has yet been able to point to any group of foreign workers currently here who should not, or would not, be here in post-Brexit Britain. Furthermore, whatever free trade deals we embark upon, the governments of Australia, New Zealand, Canada and India have already indicated that they will be looking for easier access for their workers. And even before we get to these, we will need to strike a trade deal with the EU that surely will include concessions on new EU workers. //&!

Inquiry launched into UK gender laws amid fears over Brexit effect | World news | The Guardian
[ 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. &!

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.

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.

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.

“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.”

In this hard-hitting documentary, MacIntyre uncovers a hidden world of vulnerable victims - not only those trafficked to the UK from abroad, but also a British citizen forced to work unpaid for years. Joining police raids on suspected traffickers, MacIntyre witnesses first hand the authorities' efforts to combat this growing problem. He discovers, alarmingly, that 80% of slavery crimes may be going undetected

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.
