Brexiters: Would you give up on free movement in exchange for single-market EU access?

Post by Ben Reilly on Thu Jun 30, 2016 4:12 pm

First topic message reminder :

Or would that make Brexit pointless in your view?

European Union leaders met for the first time without Britain on Wednesday less than a week after it voted to leave, delivering a tough message that London can access the bloc's lucrative single market only if it agrees to allow free movement for EU workers.

Last week's shock referendum vote to leave the EU has caused global financial market turmoil, sent the pound sterling tumbling and wiped billions off the value of British shares. Britain's giant financial services sector, roughly 8 percent of economy, relies crucially on access to the EU market.

Prime Minister David Cameron, who campaigned to stay in the EU and lost, has announced his resignation and left it up to his successor to negotiate the terms of Britain's exit.

But leaders of the victorious Leave campaign have not spelled out in detail what sort of relationship they hope to build with Brussels, creating uncertainty about the future for both Britain and the rest of the bloc.

Cameron, staying on as caretaker until a successor is found, told EU leaders at his final summit with them on Tuesday that he believed the referendum was lost over the principle of unrestricted travel among EU citizens.

But free movement of workers is one of "four freedoms" -- along with movement of capital, goods and services -- that the EU says must be maintained by any country that wants access to its common market. The 27 leaders added a line to their summit statement at the last minute emphasizing that principle.

Nationality is race in most of these discussions. You don't see people fretting about "jet back Canadians" do you?

so you think access to a free market means that you have to let ever citizen in that entity have free and unfettered access to you country.
Does NAFTA allow free and unfettered access to the united states?
the answer should be a categoric no to the EU. We can make a trade agreement with them without allowing every citizen of the EU access to our country. By all means those with skills that the UK need will be welcome, as they will be welcome from all country's in the world. However we do not want to allow those who's only intention is to take out of the system, not pay in.

Do you think the corporate big-wigs who want cheaper EU labor and don't want to deal with the inevitable tangle of red tape that dealing with each of the 27 countries individually will be pushing to concede free movement to get access to the single market?
most small business in the UK does not trade with europe, they do however have to comply with all EU red tape.

It's all the eu isnt it...?


All the same rules etc...


All these 'highly skilled and hard working' cheap eu labour are already there...





you mean like many companies that have already moved production out of the UK for cheaper labour in the east

Then you are out of luck, because they have said unequivocally that there will be no trade without free movement, full stop, finito.

Butlins and Costa coffee bars have both been in the news for that. High unemployment locally....but they prefer cheap labour from abroad.
the labour from abroad is no cheaper than the labour here, the sad fact is many in the UK seem to imagine they can all start as CEO's rather than at the bottom of the pile.

not at all, they drove wages down, but not below the minimum. However whilst we are awash with polish plumbers poland is losing its talent. I have no problem with the poles being here to work. They were an asset in the 40's and most are an asset now. IT's the people that come to claim rather than work that are the problem.

It is pushing down skilled workers rates down to min wage level... while the extra demand on housing is pushing up costs of living...


the rate is what people are willing to take.

The firms closed, got rid of the highly trained Brit workforce, and reopened under  different names with a full polish workforce. The companies organised overpriced housing (4 to a room) and overpriced transport to ferry them back and forth..

The polish workers were happy...they were earning more than at home and they had few overheads.
The immoral companies were happy because they were screwing everyone.
The Brits were out of work.
that is the fault of the company not the workers though. Report them to the police and if they are breaking the law then they could face prosecution.

But Syl... firms can get eu handout of about £1000 for employing a non british eu worker... and the worker can get a handout of nearly £1000 from eu too for 'resettlement' costs...

So you're saying, besides being able to access one market that touches most of Europe for their goods and services, UK companies also benefit financially for hiring EU workers.

You don't think they're going to fight to keep that in place?
so you are in favour of keeping people poor?, being a democrat I suppose that doesn't need asking

no it's true

my brother went over on a year visa and ended up coming back after a few months becuase there wasn't any work anything there was had people saying they'd work below the minimum wage.

The problem with this train of discussion is it assume manufacturing has gone to the EU, most of it hasn't it has gone to Asia where the wage is cheaper. It's Service jobs are getting taken by EU citizens willing to work below the British minimum.
yep all the bar jobs that aussies took in earls court are now all being done by poles, lifes a bitch eh vera.

I guess I have to spell it out for you, Tommy -- I don't endorse companies doing things like that (you should know better), I'm asking whether Brits here think they won't try.

I think it could turn out to be a situation where the EU was geared toward enriching people, and the rich aren't going to tolerate a change to that. Basically, meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Idea

Tommy is truly delusional if he thinks that he and his fellow fascist like-minded commoner anti-worker/anti-union chums will have any real influence over the new "Independent Britain's" industrial relations and labour hire practices, in 2 or 3 years time...

THE  USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia already have their infamous 'Visa 451' style temporary foreign labour hire regulations in place --  where businesses can arrange to bring in certain numbers of (cut rate) foreign workers, under modified conditions, to fill jobs where the employer can claim (even when telling porkies..) that they can't find workers locally.  There is one NYC law firm that supposedly only deals in helping corporations exploit and manipulate these "temporary guest labour" rules..

THEN there are the "backpacker workers" and "foreign students" rules that allow employers to utilise these groups for short term and casual contracts.

NO DOUBT the British business associations and corporations will be looking to have similar provisions put in place over there, to replace those EU provisions that currently apply to their foreign member workforces ?         Suspect
I know you aren't the shiniest penny in eh collection but the UK will have no problem with anyone coming her to work. What we dont want is unlimited immigration from any country. a visitors visa to the UK expressly prohibits a person working. so back packers whilst able to visit the Uk would not be allowed to work and anyone employing them would be breaking the law that is already in place here.

SEEMS the US and Aussie media has Theresa May as the front runner, as well, by tonight's news over here...          
I wonder why you are so happy to see May as PM.
She's no friend of people like you

Lower wage & conditions factories have also been set up in Eastern Europe, Russia, parts of southern and central Africa, and certain Pacic Island nations (like Fiji and Samoa..).    

AND the USA have been using Mexico, Brazil, and neighbouring countries, for the same purpose for decades..     
but NAFTA does not require the US to allow unfettered access to all their citizens does it.

it was the left wing blair years that drove wages down. My wages did not rise between 2004 and 2010

Utter bollocks.  From last year:


The NHS is facing such a chronic shortage of British nurses that one in four had to be recruited from abroad last year, new figures from the Nursing and Midwifery Council reveal. The shortfall follows cuts in the numbers of training places in each year under the coalition government. As a result, fewer “home-grown” nurses are coming through the system.

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/apr/04/nhs-recruits-one-in-four-nurses-from-abroad



Then they stopped bursaries and said prospective nurses had to take out a loan.

As for apprenticeships, the numbers have risen, but the fact many of them are utterly useless makes them worthless:


The push to create apprenticeships fast has devalued their brand, with low level skills such as coffee-making being accredited, Ofsted has said.
Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw says some learners are not even aware they are on apprenticeship schemes.
Apprenticeships, which ministers in England say are key to tackling unemployment, are sometimes covering workers' pre-existing skills, he says.

I'm no sure we have a problem with canadians coming to the UK to claim benefits. I'm not sure they can

the the governemtn should walk away from the talks

however cracks are appearing in that view as france has said something different, as no doubt will germany who sell rather a large amount of cars to the UK.

The EU do not have the whip hand in these negotiations.

Then we will not have any free trade deal.

But trade will continue.

And will cost them much more than us.

yes sadly nursing is no longer seen as a vocation by the british. that and the fact that the NHS is so politicised by the unions makes it far harder to do the job. Qualified overseas nurses will always be welcome. The key word being qualifies.

You are wrong.

Skilled workers are constantly being undercut.

Driving wages down.

They come over and are happy to live 6/8 to a house for a few months or a year at a time and do our jobs for a bit less than us.

You couldn't be more wrong if you tried.   In 2014 80,000 UK applicants for nursing training were turned away because the Government cut the number of places

It was one lw labour party in govt from 1997 to 2010...

In which time they opened the doors to mass immigration from all over the world as well as signing up to free movement to East eu countries in 2003...

That is what has caused the massive rise up costs of living and driven down wages.

We used to highly train our own....then many of them were made redundant when NHS budgets were slashed. The farce is many nurses now are supplied by agencies which cost double.
the tories have been doing that

I tend not to believe what the Tories say they do.

I don't believe that to be the case with the majority of people. I already said how many of the Polish scaffolders and builder  workers were able to work for a lesser rate than home grown  ones....they have far fewer outgoings.
Plus the firms that recruited them over charge for accommodation and travel expenses.

I agree it's the fault of the employer not the worker.

There are a minority of Brits who are better off on benefits and refuse to work for a lowly wage, but that's another subject.

Let me understand...are you saying that blacks are pirates and gun runners, or Somalians are pirates and gun runners? Or both?

Often yes.
Look at our BBC.....mega coverups for years re paedophilia in the organisation. Is that honest?
I admire investigative journalism a lot more....not so much the popular press. They all have an agenda imo.
