BREXIT LABOUR PROMISE existing rights guarantee for EU citizens
A Labour government will immediately guarantee existing rights for all EU nationals living in Britain and secure reciprocal rights for UK citizens who have chosen to make their lives in EU countries. EU nationals do not just contribute to our society: they are part of our society. And they should not be used as bargaining chips.
It is shameful that the Prime Minister rejected repeated attempts by Labour to resolve this issue before Article 50 was triggered. As a result three million EU nationals have suffered unnecessary, uncertainty, as have the 1.2 million UK citizens living in the EU.
Labour – for the many, not the few

Brexit: Partia Pracy obiecuje zagwarantować dotychczasowe prawa wszystkim obywatelom państw UE
Rzad Partii Pracy ze skutkiem natychmiastowym zagwarantuje na zasadach wzajemności dotychczasowe prawa wszystkim obywatelom państw UE mieszkajacym w Wielkiej Brytanii oraz obywatelom Wielkiej Brytanii, ktòrzy wybrali życie w krajach UE.
Obywatele państw UE nie tylko wnosza wkład w nasze społeczeństwo, oni sa jego częścia i nie powinni być traktowani jako karta przetargowa w negocjacjach z UE.
To wstyd, że Premier odrzuciła wielokrotne pròby czynione przez Partie Pracy aby rozstrzygnac tę kwestię zanim Artukuł 50 został uruchomiony. W rezultacie tego 3 miliony obywateli państw UE niepotrzebnie żyje w niepewności. To samo dotyczy 1.2 miliona obywateli Wielkiej Brytanii mieszkajacych w krajach UE.
Partia Pracy – dla wielu, a nie tylko dla wybranych.
