My last four blogs have been about wars, that our media hardly mention, for example in Yemen, inside Turkey since 1984, in the Philippines against suspected drug dealers and users, or the coming health and survival crisis in Gaza.
Today I would like to draw attention to the three million EU citizens living in Britain and to the million or so British citizens resident in 27 countries of the EU. These people have to make decisions about their jobs, homes, children’s education etc. They should not be left in a cloud of uncertainty about their futures, or about whether their existing rights will continue.
This is not a matter for haggling, as one might over tariffs or fishing limits. May I ask you to press your MP for a generous and humane solution to this issue, regardless of what may happen in the rest of the negotiations.
