Nick Clegg on Government’s ‘shameful inaction’ over securing rights of EU citizens in UK


[Mr Nick Clegg] I’ll declare an interest because
on the issue of EU citizens in the United Kingdom for me the political is personal,
as I suspect it is for many other members in this House. The two most important women
in my life, my mother who is Dutch and my wife who is Spanish are directly affected
by this. And whilst they are of course special to me I nonetheless think their fate and the
uncertainity which they have endured is actually very typical of many of our constituents across
the House. My mother has lived here for more than 50 years. She has raised four children,
she has worked as a teacher, she has paid her taxes. My wife loves this, most of the
time, loves this country, is raising children here, is paying her taxes, works as a lawyer
here. It simply beggars belief, it beggars belief that people like them and millions
like them have had a question mark placed over their status, their peace of mind, their
wellbeing in our great country because of the actions or rather the shameful inaction
of this Government.

    Nick how about the uk citizens in the EU? dont you want them to be protected? TERISA MAY went to the EU and what did they say about this matter? they said they cant garrentee UK citizens rights as artical 50 has not been triggered, FOOL!! the government opened their hands to the EU to sort this out and the EU rejected it and told the governemt to trigger artical 50 then they can negotiate the status of the EU citizens, so why should the British government give them intensives?
