Theresa May just threw EU citizens in the UK, British expats in Europe and youth under the bus in order to sell her Brexit plan. It’s shameful.
• For the past few days, Theresa May had been repeating that her Brexit deal would end freedom of movement for EU citizens forever.
• Theresa May spoke before the CBI annual conference this morning to sell her Brexit draft Withdrawall Agreement.
• In her speech, she told business leaders that her Brexit deal meant that “it will no longer be the case that EU nationals, regardless of the skills or experience they have to offer, can jump the queue ahead of engineers from Sydney or software developers from Delhi.”
