1. Stricter immigration rules for working people

 

 

You might think that a nurse who has spent the last decade tending to terminally ill British citizens would be considered an asset to our society. But under new legislation that comes into effect from April 2016, she could be deported. If you come from outside the EU and you’ve been working here for more than five years, you must be earning more than £35,000 a year, or else you will be shipped off back to your country of origin.

 

According to the Royal College of Nursing, nearly 3,500 nurses could be kicked out of the country under the legislation, in a move which could end up costing us nearly £200million. The threshold is far above the average national wage of £22,000.

 

 

Well they need to make room for those "medical professionals" that the EU want to allow in WITHOUT any checks on their qualifications ?

The chances of a hard working nurse earning this sum is very unlikely.

4. A new, flat-rate pension

 

From April 2016, there will be only a single-tier pension. This will be a flat rate paid at £155.65 a week. This replaces the current, lower basic state pension of £115.95, but it also replaces secondary and additional pensions which would normally enable people to top up the basic rate.

 

An analysis by leading actuarial firm Hymans Robertson found that most people would lose out under the new regulations. Over 20 million workers are likely to be more than £1000 a year worse off under the new deal, and people who transferred some of their savings into private schemes for brief periods in the 1980s and 90s stand to lose as much as £20,000 in total. Though she criticised this assessment as “scaremongering”, minister Ros Altmann admitted that even the government projected that 25% of people would be worse off under the new pension scheme.

 

 

What are these secondary and additional pensions they mention ?

Is this not the top up SERPS and other schemes for some state workers ?

 

Pensions have always been complicated. When my Dad retired, he was entitled to a full state pension and had one main private pension, plus another two smaller private pensions. At the time, there was some rule that pension income could not be more than two thirds of final salary. If he received all the pension incomes, it would have exceeded this, so they adjusted the amount he would receive.

 

I am convinced that in 20 years time, those retiring will receive much less in real terms, as the state pension is again adjusted, just due to the sheer number of people receiving pensions. There may come a time, where the government scraps the existing state pension for people under a certain age and require all to have private pensions.

The NHS has been taking in Doctors and Nurses from around the world for decades and this won't change. Many come from Commonwealth countries, where they often come to earn far more money than where they have come from and some return to their homeland to help people using the skills they learned.

 

The government will amend the immigration rules to protect key workers,
