The Express and the Telegraph say the Home Office is undermining to oust three million EU natives after a Brexit. The Express named this risk “venture dread”, while The Telegraph cited a few Leave campaigners to the same impact. The papers ought to have named it ‘anticipate fiction’, as the Home Office undermined no such thing.
Asked whether the administration would give EU nationals at present in the UK a programmed privilege to stay after a Brexit, the Home Office representative in the Lords didn’t really give an immediate answer. Because of a parliamentary composed inquiry, Lord Keen alluded to British nationals in the EU, saying:
“UK subjects get the privilege to live and work in the other 27 part states from our participation of the EU. In the event that the UK voted to leave the EU, the administration would do everything it could to secure a positive result for the nation, yet there would be no necessity under EU law for these rights to be kept up”.
From this reply, The Express delivered the feature “Venture FEAR: ‘Three million EU subjects in Britain to be KICKED OUT if UK votes Brexit”. The Telegraph’s feature was: “Three million EU natives in the UK could be extradited if Britons vote in favor of a ‘Brexit’, Home Office proposes”. Its basic passage said the case “was impugned as “ridiculous” by hostile to EU campaigners.”
Such a case would, for sure, have been ludicrous on the off chance that it had been made. While it is not by any stretch of the imagination clear what might happen to EU nationals in the UK, no administration figure has recommended that each of the 3 million ought to be kicked out. What is silly are the daily papers’ stories.
