Economic migrants are living in administrative limbo without passports for up to two years because of Home Office delays, figures show.

Immigration lawyers say "inhumane" hold-ups in residency applications are affecting many families living in the UK legally.

Their inability to travel means some cannot work and others have missed funerals and births.

The Home Office said complex cases took longer to process.

'We are living in a virtual prison'

'I missed my father's funeral'

'I've yet to meet my second child'

'It's a form of torture'

'The stress is unbearable'

Procedural error and poor decision-making have been blamed for the delays.

Figures seen by the BBC show the longest time an applicant had to wait for a residency decision between January 2014 and June 2017 was 719 days, while the longest an application was on hold for during the same period was 1,001 days.

Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott urged the Home Office to "come clean" over the issue.

Harjap Singh Bhangal, a partner at WRJ Solicitors, said it was affecting thousands of families, some of whom had been in the country for 10 years.

Working migrants who have lived in the UK on a temporary visa for at least five years have a right to apply for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) for themselves and their families.

A decision should take six months in straightforward cases but some people have been waiting three times that long, with the Home Office retaining their passports.

In 2015, a report by the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman accused the Home Office of delays and poor decision-making in its handling of immigration cases.

The Home Office disputes there is a backlog and said the delays were to do with the complexity of individual applications.

It said there is no service standard for complex cases.

It said people have been notified their applications are not straightforward and that it was inappropriate to return their travel documents prior to a decision being made.

 

 

A spokesman said: "We understand the disruption that waiting for an immigration application to conclude can cause for individuals and their families.

"That is why we endeavour to resolve all applications as promptly as possible and continue to meet service standards for straightforward applications for indefinite leave to remain.

"But it is vital that the correct decisions are made, particularly with complex cases that require detailed consideration and verification of evidence."

The cost of applying for indefinite leave to remain rose to £2,297 per person on 6 April 2017. The cost to the Home Office for processing the application is £252.

'Hostile atmosphere'

Mr Bhangal said in some cases where applicants have paid for a decision to be made on the day, they have been left waiting more than four months for a reply.

He said: "These applicants pay huge sums in fees for a service which they rarely receive on time, however we are constantly told that the Home Office is not fit for purpose and the government has failed to improve the quality of services it provides."

 

 

Jan Doerfel, a barrister who specialises in immigration, said the delays were inhumane.

He said: "The culture of disbelief that governs decision-making within the Home Office, and excessive and scandalous waiting times for appeal hearings, are all part of the government's aim to reduce immigration by creating a hostile atmosphere for immigrants and their families.

 "These are intentional effects of which the Home Office is well aware."

 Prime Minister Theresa May has signalled that she wants to cut immigration to less than 100,000 a year by 2022, and the pledge was in the 2010 and 2015 Tory manifestos.

A new immigration Bill next year is set to decide much of the country's future migration policy after Brexit.

Ms Abbott said: "The Home Office is struggling to cope with the demands being placed upon it by the Tories' chaotic approach to Brexit and as a result people are having to put their lives on hold.

"This is a completely unacceptable way to treat people who are our friends, our colleagues and our neighbours.

"Ministers need to come clean about the true scale of this backlog and explain what steps they are taking to sort it out."

The Home Office denied the hold-ups have anything to do with Brexit.

For 90 minutes to two hours or more each night, every single person on Earth dreams. Sometimes, the dreams are straightforward in their meaning to the dreamer: a long-lost friend reappears, a tropical beach beckons or the lottery jackpot is within reach.

But dreams don’t always tell a simple story, and the field of dream research becomes even more fascinating when people from different cultures and backgrounds report having similar dreams.

“Dreams are a universal language, creating often elaborate images out of emotional concepts,” explains Suzanne Bergmann, a licensed social worker and professional dream worker for more than 16 years.

Bergmann, who is part of the experienced team of Dream Reflectors at DreamsCloud that provide feedback and insight about dreams, has identified 14 common images found in dreams posted to the DreamsCloud user-generated dreams database.

“There’s no single, definitive meaning for symbols and images in dreams,” Bergmann notes. “But just as a smile usually means that someone is happy, these dream images are so common, that they do have a generally accepted meaning.”

1. Being Chased

This is one of the most commonly reported dreams. Mostly because the anxiety we feel in the dream is so vivid, that it makes it easier for us to remember them. Often, the reason for these dreams comes not from the fear of actually being chased, but rather what we’re running from. Chase dreams help us to understand that we may not be addressing something in our waking lives that requires our attention.

2. Water

 

 

 

Water frequently represents our emotions or our unconscious minds. The quality of the water (clear vs. cloudy; calm vs. turbulent) often provides insight into how effectively we are managing our emotions.

3. Vehicles

 

 

 

Whether a car, airplane, train or ship, the vehicles in our dream can reflect what direction we feel our life is taking, and how much control we think we have over the path ahead of us. Vehicles can give us the power to make a transition and envision ourselves getting to our destination — or highlight the obstacles we think we are facing and need to work through.

 4. People

 

Seeing other people in your dream often is a reflection of the different aspects of the self. The people in dreams can relate to characteristics that need to be developed. Specific people directly relate to existing relationships or interpersonal issues we need to work through. Dreaming of a lover, in particular, is frequently symbolic of an aspect of ourselves, from which we feel detached.

 

 5. School or Classroom

 

 

It’s a very common situation for people in dreams to find themselves in a school or classroom, often confronted with a test that they aren’t prepared to take. This is a great example of a “dream pun” — the mind using a word or concept and giving it a different definition. The “lesson” or “test” we face inside the school or classroom is frequently one we need to learn from our past — which is one reason these dreams are often reported by people who have long since finished school.

6. Paralysis

 

Unknown to most people, the body is actually encountering a form of paralysis during dreaming, which prevents it from physically performing the actions occurring in their dreams, therefore dreaming about paralysis frequently represents the overlap between the REM stage and waking stage of sleep. Dreaming about paralysis can also indicate that the dreamer feels he or she lacks control in their waking life.

  

7. Death

 

Although death is often perceived as negative, it’s often more directly related to dramatic change happening for the dreamer — the end of one thing, in order to make room for something new.

8. Flying

 

Flying in a dream, and how effectively or poorly it’s done, relates to how much control we feel we have in our lives, and whether we are confident and able to achieve our goals. High flying is one of the most euphoric dreams imaginable, while flying or “skimming” low to the ground or being caught in obstacles like power lines can be immensely frustrating.

9. Falling

Not all falling dreams are scary and negative. Some dreamers report a type of slow falling that indicates serenity and the act of letting go. Often, falling uncontrollably from a great height indicates something in waking our life that feels very much out of control.

10. Nudity

Emotional or psychological exposure or vulnerability is very often expressed in dreams through nudity. The body part that’s exposed can give more insight into the emotion that our dreams are helping us to understand.

11. Baby

Dreaming of a baby often represents something new: It might be a new idea, new project at work, new development or the potential for growth in a specific area of our waking life.

12. Food

4

Food symbolizes energy, knowledge or nourishment and is directly related to our intellect, emotions and spirituality. Food can also be a manifestation of idioms like, “food for thought,” and reveal that we may be “hungry” for new information and insights.

13. House

 

Houses frequently represent the dreamer’s mind. Different levels or rooms may relate to difference aspects of the individual dreamer and different degrees of consciousness. The basement often represents what has been neglected, or what the dreamer is not aware of in his or her waking life, while bedrooms relate to intimate thoughts and feelings — those closest to the dreamer’s core self.

14. Sex

Sex in dreams can simply be an outlet for sexual expression. But dreams about sex can also symbolize intimate connections with one’s self and others, and the figurative integration of new information.

 

Despite the commonality shared by many dream symbols, it is important to point out that only the dreamer can truly interpret the meaning of their dream and how these symbols and their meanings may connect to the specific events occurring in their waking life.

With job creation seen as his government's biggest failing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi replaced both ministers in charge of employment. Their successors face an uphill task.

India will have the world's biggest labor force by 2027 and the millennial generation is crucial to anchor one of the fastest paces of economic growth. However fresh employment opportunities are scarce and the administration has lagged in training workers to help them survive the threat of automation.

Questions are increasing about PM Modi's ability to fulfill his 10-million-jobs-a-year campaign pledge with less than two years to go before he faces re-election. Few were surprised when he overhauled his cabinet on Sunday, replacing Skill Development Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy with Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Labor Minister Bandaru Dattatreya with Junior Finance Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar. Mr Pradhan has successfully implemented Modi's pet projects, including offering clean cooking gas to the poor.

"There's been a complete failure when it comes to jobs creation and skilling," said Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay, a political analyst and author of a biography on Mr Modi. "The reshuffle is a clear indicator that Mr. Modi is aware of the political risks this can create in 2019."

To be sure, there's demand for the skilled. India's government estimates the country will need an extra 110 million workers across 24 sectors of the economy by 2022, compared with the 105 million who will enter the workforce.

What's missing though is that only 5 percent of the current workforce possesses the required skills and it's a race against the clock to train them all. Lack of funding and shortage of qualified trainers are among the reasons cited for the lag.
