Standing up for Islington


Islington is one community that is home to people of all backgrounds, including around 30,000 people from countries in the European Union. They are our friends, family and neighbours.



They make a huge contribution to our vibrant and diverse community, and many work in vital jobs that support our daily life, such as in the NHS.

Our friends, family and neighbours, who are an essential part of our community, are being used by the Tory Government as bargaining chips in the Brexit negotiations.

We, the undersigned, call for the Tory Government to:

  • Immediately guarantee the full rights of all EU citizens currently living in Islington
  • Stop using our friends, family and neighbours as bargaining chips in the Brexit negotiations
  • Guarantee that EU citizens’ rights will not be affected in the event of no Brexit deal being agreed

I’m not exactly happy with Labour’s insipid approach to this diastrous Brexit sort out a proper challenge o the shambles going on!

I am married to a European National, and the official requirements to safe-guard her residency are expensive and complex, and should be completely unnecessary! Not to speak of the stress and inconvenience involved in the whole process…

Our European brothers and sisters are our friends, they are not bargaining chips for an incompetent administration run by a lunatic fringe.

Leaving the EU for me has nothing to do with penalising ordinary workers, wherever they are from – everyone has to be somewhere.

For me leaving the EU is all about being ruled by UNELECTED BANKERS & INDUSTRIALISTS – I didn’t want us to join the Common Market in 1973 & I still DON’T – we lost 140 pennies per £ thanks to decimalisation pre-joining.

I strongly support Islington Labour’s initiative in demanding the rights of EU citizens living in here to be fully respected and protected under all circumstances. I hope other London boroughs and beyond adopt this call.

It’s unacceptable that our friends and neighbours are being used as pawns in the government’s Brexit fiasco.
