Wanted Not Tolerated!

The new Brexit Secretary for the British government, Dominic Raab has said that the future of EU migrants in the Uk will be secure even if there is no agreement reached with the EU over a Brexit deal. He continued it would be ‘inconceivable’ they will be ‘turfed out.’

An article in the Daily Telegraph though hit the nail on the head when it said that EU citizens need to feel ‘wanted’ rather than just being told they will be allowed to stay.

EU Welcome has always emphasised the worth and dignity of each individual. No-one leaves their country on a whim. Everyone has a story to tell and a reason for coming here.   Sometimes we can’t solve people’s problems, but we can always show that we care.

On 6 September a meeting is taking place in Salisbury titled ‘What Future for EU citizens in the UK?’  The speaker is part of www.ukcen.co.uk   For full details see https://www.facebook.com/groups/the3millionSolent/    Meanwhile the Home Office’s latest information says this https://www.gov.uk/government/news/home-office-launches-toolkit-for-employers-to-support-eu-settlement-scheme

Do remember though that some people feel that Brexit will be delayed, and there are calls for another Referendum ‘The People’s Vote’ https://www.peoples-vote.uk/   Nothing is certain!
