- from Home Secretary charged with securing the safety off all who are within Britain's shores
- to international terrorist as hostage taker regarding UK Brexit negotiations
London Green Left blogger Mike Shaughnessy reports — EU Nationals Must be Allowed to Stay in the UK:
Theresa May, the Home Secretary and front runner to be Tory Party leader and next Prime Minister, says that she cannot guarantee that European nationals already living in the UK, will be allowed to remain in the country. Apparently, their fate is to be part of the UK’s negotiating position, together with UK nationals living in EU countries.
There are around 1.2 million UK nationals living in the EU and around 3 million EU nationals living in the UK. The other candidates for the leadership of the Tory Party have said that May is using them as ‘bargaining chip,’ which I think is a pretty accurate description of May’s attitude to the whole issue of our exit negotiations from the EU.(2)
