Most EU nationals living in the UK cannot vote – leaving many feeling like pawns in a political game

In a threadbare youth centre in Bradford, Vie Clerc, who got off a Eurostar from Paris 19 years ago with £50 in her pocket and never left, laments the irony. “It’s the first one I’ll actually be able to vote in,” she said. “Shame I’ve never felt less British.”

In a bright mezzanine office in Bristol, Denny Pencheva, who landed in 2013 from Bulgaria via Copenhagen and now teaches at the university, bemoans politicians “who use us to score their political points, but don’t actually have to consider us – because politically, we don’t count”.

The ordinary spaces of human interaction have become politicised, beyond belief

Everyone you meet now, you sort of calculate: leaver or remainer? Like, how will they react to me?

We’ve lived here so long, paid taxes, contributed, raised fine, English-speaking children whose future is here.

Prime minister said migrants from Europe have treated the UK like ‘their own’ country for too long

Campaigners for EU citizens have launched a scathing attack on Boris Johnson over his claims that EU nationals who made the Britain their home have treated the UK like “their own” country for too long.

They say his remarks have moved some of their members to tears as they suggest the 3.4m who have settled in the UK have somehow abused freedom of movement laws.

Arrangement to apply part of EU customs code to region is ‘major’ block to Brexit delivery

Northern Ireland customs arrangements may thwart Boris Johnson’s plan to leave the EU by December 2020, according to a document said to be leaked from civil servants in the Department for Exiting the EU.

In the document, seen by the Financial Times, staff raised concerns about the readiness of the new customs arrangement, calling the protocol to keep part of the EU customs code in Northern Ireland, a “major” obstacle to Brexit delivery.

Chinese people will not be intimidated by any threats


#US #interference #China #HK #politics #international
(People’s Daily) 07:45, December 02, 2019

"The U.S. has signed the so-called #Hong #Kong #Human #Rights and #Democracy #Act of 2019 into law recently regardless of the solemn representations and strong opposition from China.

The U.S. move has seriously interfered in the Hong Kong affairs and the #internal #affairs of China, and violated the #international #law and the basic norms governing international relations.

The Chinese government strongly opposes such barefaced #hegemony and the Chinese people will not be intimidated by any #threats. Any attempt to interfere in China’s internal affairs is doomed to fail".
