Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And if you're up for it, here's a page from the UK Parliament's Select Committee on Work and Pensions on the entire subject. If you scroll down to paragraph 11, they discuss the Beatty/Fothergill study favourably.

My point is, of course, that the fact of this displacement of the long-term unemployed is well-known in government circles. It's just so handy to ignore it when you want to use unemployment figures to point to weaknesses in other countries' economies.
