The Prime Minister Is Using People As Bargaining Chips
Commenting on the white paper published Monday on the rights of EU citizens currently living in the UK after Brexit, TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said:
"The Prime Minister is using people as bargaining chips. It's a shameful way to treat people who are making a valuable contribution to Britain, not least in the NHS. And it will worry Britons living in EU countries that it will provoke a bad deal for their future rights.
"By leaving it to negotiations, the Prime Minister is prolonging the anxiety and uncertainty people are suffering. And she is damaging the goodwill needed to secure a successful Brexit deal. It's yet more evidence of how her chaotic Brexit strategy is failing to prioritise working people and good jobs."
