A lot are here legally at first
EU nationals
Not working after three months, not having valid ID etc, then they stop exercising their Treaty Rights.....and what do we do about it?

It is very difficult to prove that they have stopped exercising their treaty rights - until the end of the year, the EU would go mental if the Home Secretary (in the form of a CS) were to ask an EEA citizen if they were working (except if they were importing a relative). It would go against their right to free movement IIRC.

But the earlier poster is correct about the over-crowded housing. I have a friend who works in housing for a council and they dare not start investigating too carefully lest they find themselves neck deep in that problem - it is also not lawful to use the risk of overcrowding to deny a person entry to the UK if they are an EEA citizen or a relative thereof. Apparently...
(Part X of he 1986 housing act refers if my memory serves, plus part 12 of the EEA immigration thingy).


ETA: Just remembered - if they are making legitimate efforts to find work then they are exercising their treaty rights.

I seem to remember, 5+ years ago, when some borough up London way, enforced that. All council bumf in English only, and, as at the end of your post, you provide the translator. Saved the locals millions on council tax. If I've imagined it. or it's been rescinded, apologies.
Probably immediately jumped on by some effing HR lawyer and been overturned by order of the court.

Have you got the right year?

Not carrying ID cards and been a burden on the host nation (ie NHS)
No ID means no chance of work, (not exercising treaty rights)
 
I have to wonder at the need for translators when we are constantly told that the "draw" for migrants is that we speak English here.
Does Latvia translate every document into 26 plus languages, or pay for translators at 30 quid plus an hour?
Do you get free health care there?
Can you go to jail for two years or less and stay there?

Nope, nor do most if any of the EU states.
Hell Belgium doesn't (not even to English) and it has an awful lot of translators and multilingual people on hand with EU parliament, Commission and NATO just in Brussels. I used to get the few official Belgian docs I had to deal with translated by the folks I worked with, that or I'd drag a mate along to the commune offices after bribing him with beer, he loved dealing with the Walloon officials being a Flemish ex NCO :D

I thought this was a new designer watch thread from Switzerland.
Imagine my disappointment when it turned out to be about another dodgy MP.

EX MP.. I must keep up but I have found recently that I am not watching the news as often as I did.
My mood has improved recently though:-D

Still a sitting MP as far as I can find out, just suspended from the Labour Whip while the harassment case is ongoing. No doubt milking the expenses and allowances system as hard as she can to enrich herself, just like every other "socialist" MP.

That Guido article is toe curling, an MP really should do better.

Yep I read that Guido link and thoroughly agree, an absolute disgrace.

That's a brave fashion choice.
I wonder if they make those skirts in her size ?
The funny thing was and it's on various video clips , is that her phone started ringing during her speech and she didn't appear to know how to turn it off . :-D
Shades of two left shoes and other failings
and they want to run the country don't ya know

Have a look at who in the chamber is fiddling with their phone in the couple of minutes before hers starts ringing.

now happily retired after a career where he was famously litigious.
not that Iā€™m alleging my Council is run by crooks...
whats that? Cuts to be made in OAP provision? Head made redundant with a rather fabulous payout. whats that! A familiar face waltzes in the door a month later in a new role?

as some Ancient Greek, Pericles? noted, anyone who would voluntarily put him self forward for so onerous and thankless a task as public service, is either a Crook or a scoundrel and should be disbarred,

Morning @PhotEx,
For some reason I always remember the more modern take on that.
