The new immigration bill confirms our fears…

22 May, 2020

• ON Monday the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill 2020 had its second reading in the Commons.

In 2018 I was the first Tory candidate who made a public stance and stepped down because of Brexit. It was clear to me that Brexit means only one thing, a curtailment of our freedoms.

Now we know, the immigration bill confirms our fears that it presents the UK as a country ruled by self-righteousness and that, to a large extent, people in the UK enjoy looking down on others.

This even at the price of the curtailment of their own freedoms. A reasoned person would assume that we learned at the least in the Covid-19 crisis how much we depend on key workers and that we would appreciate them. Many are EU citizens.

The bill says the opposite. In post-Brexit Britain those key workers are blamed as unskilled all together and not worthy to have a right to live in Britain and even if, not as equal people.

I am deeply saddened! Let us all continue to fight for freedom and respect for everyone, in London and all over the UK, the country that people of the world have long seen as the light of freedom, kindness and togetherness.
