1/ What is wrong with the British media? Yesterday @the3million held a mass lobby at Parliament with over 300 concerned EU citizens & @BritishInEurope protesting. The event was covered globally, but nothing, nada, zilch in the main UK media.
2/ I spoke to TV and Press from Austria, Germany & Japan. There were TV crews from Portugal, France & Spain. But where was the coverage by UK media?
3/ here is the main German broadcaster @DasErste covering our lobby at Parliament during the main evening news yesterday
3/ Equally Austrian main broadcaster @ORF covered the lobby for our #citizensrights in their evening news.
4/ the second largest Dutch newspaper @RDStad picked up on the protest.
5/ and the news travelled even as far as Malaysia
6/ It wasn't that the story had no profile in the UK. The framing was perfect. The House of Commons spent 45min grilling the immigration minister on exactly the topic our lobby was about: #citizensrights in case of no-deal Brexit. Again the minister gave a shambolic performance
7/ I can understand that @SkyNews, @BBCNewsPR, @itvnews, @Channel4News & @Channel5Press have no interest in EU citizens in the UK, who cares, but dozens of @BritishInEurope flew in for the lobby yesterday. British citizens deeply affected should it come to a no-deal Brexit
8/ shame on the uncaring British media who got shown up by their global counterparts yesterday. /end
Since this morning more international coverage of #thelastmile lobby of EU citizens in the UK & @BritishInEurope. And still nothing in the UK press. Here more Dutch press:
And here coverage by South African @eNCA
And here @Le_Figaro in France
The #LastMileLobby also made it across the pond to the USA:
And @YahooNews covered the #LastMileLobby of the 3.6m EU citizens in the UK & 1.2m @BritishInEurope fighting for their #citizensrights in case of no deal Brexit
And again more coverage in the Dutch press by @NOS
And still sweet nothing from the UK media on the protest by @The3Million & @BritishInEurope for their #citizensrights in case of no-deal Brexit despite this being an issue that directly affects the lives of 5m people and their families.
And yet more international coverage, this time @euronews in German. British media, hang your heads in shame
Little update. Very grateful for @mrjamesob picking this up earlier and giving me the time to talk about our lobby and the real concerns #the5million EU citizens in the UK & @BritishInEurope have.
