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.

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.

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.

After the EU Referendum: What Next for Britain and Europe? - YouTube
why England voted leave, why did the Project Fear not work? >> "inequality, identity, and immigration." [...] cultural divide (ie the passport statistic - more or less cosmopolitan, plays also into identity), educational divide (higher attainment higher remain votes), and to some smaller parts economic divide [...] and the AGE DIVIDE! [...] median income divide (low median income = leave vote) [...] 'Poorest voted to leave as life can't get any harder. And punch the toffs in the face. The only chance you've got.' [...] net immigration 300k low skilled, the sized of Newcastle = pressure on schools and services (longer queues). + AUSTERITY + secular stagnation + no wage increase + cost of living increase = DISASTER. low skilled England had to compete with low skilled EEA immigrants.

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!

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.
