Lucy comments on "retaliatory deportations" of UK nationals living in the EU

Lucy was cited in The Independent in an article about "retaliatory deportations" for UK citizens currently living in Europe.


Lucy commented: “The UK government has its head in the sand when it comes to the needs of British nationals elsewhere in the EU. Domestic grandstanding by ministers like Brandon Lewis is undermining the fight of UK citizens elsewhere in the EU to secure their immigration status, which has been put in doubt by the extreme Brexit policies of this Conservative government. Brandon Lewis was irresponsible to suggest that EU27 citizens may be deported. UK nationals, who moved abroad believing their right to do so would be lifelong, could now face the prospect of retaliatory deportations. The millionaire backers of Brexit will always be free to move where they like, freedom of movement extended these rights to everyone.”
