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).

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.”
