UK government statement on EU citizens arriving during post-Brexit transition period

February 28, 2018

Commenting, Lord Green of Deddington, Chairman of Migration Watch UK:

This means anyone coming to work, study or be self-sufficient will acquire the right to remain indefinitely and bring their family. This is a complete capitulation to EU demands, as yet with no parallel commitment from EU member states. This will lead to a scale of immigration to the UK that the electorate voted against and certainly don't want to see.
