In December, I, along with every other Labour Council Leader in London, wrote to the Prime Minister asking that she immediately guarantee the future rights of EU citizens living in our City.
EU Citizens are our friends and neighbours. They are critical to our economy and our public services in Islington and cross London depend on them. It is imperative the Government stop playing politics with their lives and guarantee their full rights now.
This article on the Islington Labour website sets out why I’m so disappointing with the Government’s wishy-washy response: Government has dodged the question again on the rights of local people from the EU.
