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.

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.

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.

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. &!

Theresa May allies publish letters to Cameron calling for immigration brake | Politics | The Guardian
Allies of Theresa May have released details of letters they say the then home secretary wrote to David Cameron making the case for an emergency brake on EU migration amid negotiations before the Brexit referendum, rejecting charges she did not back him on the issue.

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.”

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.

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.”

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

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.

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.
