I shall be live tweeting this debate - hoping to see some constructive policy suggestions from @scotgov here. #NewScots #Scotland #UnitedInDiversity #SettledStatus
@scotgov Shockingly few attending the debate. @BenMacpherson points out that @scotgov is working with @the3million and other to provide support in applying for (pre)SS.
@scotgov @BenMacpherson @the3million Thompkin reprimands @BenMacpherson for using the phrase "hostile environment", stating that UKgov is welcoming skilled labour and that this is not 'hostile'. MacPherson responds that going by migrant's experiences the Hostile Environment has spread fear.

The Home Office yesterday said that 2million of the (HO guesstimate) 3.3million #EUcitizens in the UK have now applied for Settled Status. Digging into those statistics in regards to #Scotland - bearing in mind there are no reliable UK immigration stats - reveals the following:
Going by 2017 NRS data there were 239,000 ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ #NewScots in Scotland. Subtracting the 21,000 Irish-born EU nationals (whose residency rights aren't depending on EU citizenship = No need for SS applications) that leaves us with 218,000 #NewScots required to apply for Settled Status.
Previous to @patel4witham "FoM will end on October 31st" misleading dogwhistling exercise only ONE in five ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ#NewScots had applied for Settled Status (despite ~ ยฃ5 @scotgov spend per head on access to SS info). Contrast this with 1 in 3 for rUK (with only ~ยฃ3 pp UKgov spend).

@ameliagentleman Can I say a word or two about #theforgetten @BritishInEurope especially people in France? Like the UK, since 2003, France doesn't require #EUcitizens to register, unlike other countries. We do, however, have the right to a residency permit, called a carte de sรฉjour, as long as...
@ameliagentleman @BritishInEurope We fulfill certain criteria. These include income, whether we are working, students, or retired, how long we have been here, etc. Many thousands of us started to apply to stay in our own homes (sound familiar?) and keep our jobs after the referendum - many of us couldn't vote.. 3
@ameliagentleman @BritishInEurope Either because we had been out of the UK for 15yrs + (cf Tory manifesto) or our ballots didn't arrive or our proxies didn't get the papers. (This also happened for the recent EU elections). So, to get our cartes, we have to get an appointment at the local prefecture/police... 4

Thread: The U.K. Govt. confirmed what was suspected (and what the @ukhomeoffice have hinted at in private talks) that, in the event of a no-deal #Brexit, free movement will end on 29/03/2019. For #EUcitizens arriving after this date, they face a new temporary system.
The Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill, once enacted, will repeal the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016, which currently implement free movement in UK law.
This system will be a temporary transitional system running from 30/03/2019 and until 31/12/2020, to give the U.K. Govt. time to implement the new immigration system on 01/01/2021.

1/ The team is in #Eastbourne #Wetherspoons. Within 5 mins of arriving a bitter faced woman comes up to me & orders me "not to disrupt the event or she will vote Leave again in a #PeoplesVote"
I asked her if she was threatening me? ๐Ÿค”
(At least she is thinking about another vote)
2/ absolutely packed full in #Eastbourne #Wetherspoons. Some holding @LeaveMnsLeave placards. Everyone squeezed in like sardines. I heard a lady whining that Remainers had come. Someone else pulled a pro EU badge off my guitar case and slipped it into their pocket (Beats me?)๐Ÿคท๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ
3/This lady asks what facts Tim has to show food prices won't rise as a result of #Brexit, as evidenced by the various "commentaries" he dismisses. He claims we don't need to charge tarrifs on anything & then food prices will drop, @Jim_Cornelius taking him to task on his lies

Arrived at #Wetherspoons in MCR. Tim Martin arrives 10 mins late & tells us "he is going to give us a talk". I thought this was supposed to be a #Brexit debate? ๐Ÿค” "Metropolitan elites are pushing for a deal we don't need & if we crash out on #NoDeal we will avoid paying ยฃ39bn"
I just had to point out to Tim that it is our own government who hasn't been implementing EU laws on controlling migration and hasn't properly documented #EUcitizens living in the UK, as they do in other EU countries.
He just admitted he needs to go back and "check his books." ๐Ÿ™„
This woman quite rightly pointing out that if we don't pay the ยฃ39bn financial obligation... then who else is going to pay @Nigel_Farage's pension? ๐Ÿค” Tim says his research hasn't led him to any answers.

In a letter to @Andrew_Adonis, dated 5th September 2018, @Jacob_Reese_mogg displays his complete lack of care for #EUCitizens
@Andrew_Adonis On page 3 of this document, he makes the following statement:

"I do not believe there should be any special terms for EU migrants"

He takes a purely legal standpoint which does nothing to take into consideration the human cost of what will be a big change in legal status.
If you want to read the letter in full, where he discusses the lack of mandate for a second referendum and his stance that any breach of the Belfast agreement would be the fault of the Republic of Ireland, you can find the document here:
