The process of exiting the European Union (EU) could worsen the social care crisis if the UK government does not protect access to personal assistants (PAs) from EU countries, disabled peers have warned. They told a work and pensions minister that uncertainty over the “Brexit” negotiations with fellow EU members was leading to “terrible uncertainty” among the thousands of disabled people whose PAs are citizens of other EU countries. But peers heard that there was not a single mention of disabled people or disability in the government’s white paper on Brexit. The disabled crossbench peer Baroness Campbell told the Lords debate on the impact of Brexit on disabled people – secured by the Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Scott – that she had employed PAs from at least 10 EU countries in the last 25 years. Baroness Campbell told fellow peers that other disabled people who employed PAs had told her that the pool of potential employees was “drying up”, while demand continued to rise, which
We have already been paying more than most in the EU, so we have already covered our payments, whether it be the Pub or the EU,
———————————————————————————–BRUSSELS today defiantly insisted Britain will continue to honour its EU spending commitments after leaving the bloc and compared the country to someone who wants to leave the pub early without buying their round.
As the shadow Brexit secretary sorrowfully remarked, Article 50 is “very difficult” for the party.
If Remainers want to influence the outcome of Brexit they must first accept that it’s happening
Is Hunt real, how is Brexit to blame. The persons who appear to be creating Heath Tourism are not from Europe so any package is not affected whether Brexit is enacted or not.
Within Europe we have reciprocal arrangements to claim back health cost, as non-UK European countries do claim back from the UK, so why can the UK not do the same.
Should we ever enact Brexit and do eventual withdraw from the EU, then all European countries will be the same as any non-UK countries outside Europe, assuming we do not renegotiate reciprocal arrangements. Currently there are nine European countries not in the EU, so when we are mentioning EU and Europe they are not one of the same as all EU countries are in Europe, but not all Europe is in the EU and Brexit purely means leaving the EU and not Europe.
JEREMY Hunt has scrapped plans to introduce charges for foreigners using the NHS – and blamed Brexit for the shock U-turn.
Announcing ambitious plans to save £2billion a year, he revealed patients could soon be forced to show ID to prove they are entitled to free NHS care before being treated.
Jeremy Hunt blamed Brexit for shelving the plans.
Quizzed yesterday over whether a bill would be brought in, he told MPs: “We didn’t actually proceed with the legislation because of Brexit.”

Prime Minister May wants full sovereignty for the UK. But then it has to do without the advantages of the EU. The Union lives from the common rules. She must not give it away.
That is why the Prime Minister is concerned: she wants to give her electoral people the greatest possible sovereignty. Sovereignty is determined by May as to the extent to which rules have to be worked out together with other nations, whether compromises are to be made, and how many people are crossing their own borders in this highly mobile world. Until Proposed referendum on United Kingdom membership of the European Union , Britain subjugated – reluctantly – the logic that sovereignty can exercise together with other states in order to gain more freedom and security. Now the British government seeks the salvation in the comprehensibility. This is the legitimate consequence of the Brexit vote.
Alone: The question of the price has not yet been answered. This is the EU’s response. And this answer will decide whether the Union will endure, or whether it will fall according to Trump’s prediction. For if the price of the exit is small, there will be enough imitators who, like the British, retreat into their national shell.
Vince Cable makes the liberal case for immigration controls.
So the BBC is in the pocket of the EU, what a surprise and I wonder how many other pockets there are.
While, as an independent company, they are free to apply for additional work and funds from other sources, it does create a possible conflict of Interest.
I would say if they have nothing to hide, why they did not report this as a news worthy item when the project money was first awarded to them.
They are always eager to do this in respect of other organisations, so the apparent secrecy could be a worrying aspect.
THE BBC was today branded the “EU Broadcasting Corporation” after it emerged it has pocketed millions of pounds of undeclared European Union cash over the last three years.
The Beeb has raked in more than £300,000 worth of EU grants since the referendum alone, with the money being paid out for “research projects” carried out by BBC staff.
The row blew up after it emerged that Brussels has agreed to…

BRITAIN is exposed to an eye watering £1.1 trillion of liabilities while it is still in the European Union.
If there is a collapse in the eurozone Britain could be asked to help pick up a bill which in effect would double its national debt.
This followed a failure by the bank to raise £4.26 billion on the international markets to stop it…

Should this be correct was Heath guilty of an illegal act and if so, surely, this would mean that the 1972 European Communities Bill was also illegal.
In law would this mean that any monies paid into the EU were also illegal and therefore all monies should be returned.
Would anyone like to comment?
”Just weeks before the 1970 general election which made him Prime Minister, Edward Heath declared that it would be wrong if any Government contemplating membership of the European Community were to take this step without `the full hearted consent of Parliament and people’.
However, when it came to it Heath didn’t have a referendum because opinion polls at the time (1972) showed that the British people were hugely opposed (by a margin of two to one) to joining the Common Market. Instead, Heath merely signed the documents that took us into what became the European Union on the basis that Parliament alone had passed the European Communities Bill of 1972.
Some MPs have subsequently claimed that `Parliament can do whatever it likes’. But that isn’t true, of course. Parliament consists of a number of individual MPs who have been elected by their constituents to represent them. Political parties are not…
