"Whatever our background", @theresa_may said in her #MayResigns speech, "we stand together".
Standing together.
Sounds good.
But:
🛑 This was you on 3 July 2016, @theresa_may, choosing to make 3.6 million EU citizens at home in the UK bargaining chips in Brexit negotiations. 1/
🛑 This was you on 5 October 2016, @theresa_may, choosing to cast EU citizens (and many more people) as "citizens of nowhere", implying that we do not contribute, are not real citizens, here in the UK. 2/
🛑 This was you on 26 June 2017, @theresa_may, choosing to introduce #SettledStatus as the new status for EU citizens already at home in the UK. This status is *not* actually just granted, but can only be acquired by *applying*, and strips EU citizens of rights in the process. 3/
🛑 This was you on 10 October 2017, @theresa_may, choosing to repeatedly refuse to guarantee the rights of millions of EU citizens at home in the UK in the event of no-deal; this directly caused severe anxiety and fear amongst many EU citizens and their families. 4/
🛑 This was you on 19 November 2018, @theresa_may, choosing to describe EU citizens - those who committed theirs lives to this country, are at home here - as queue-jumpers. 5/
🛑 This was you on 22 May 2019, @theresa_may, choosing to *not* put in place measures to ensure all EU citizens registered and eligible to vote in the UK for #EUelections2019 can vote. #DeniedMyVote was the direct result of your choice. 6/
Standing together.
You do not even know what it means @theresa_may.
You have never stood together with anyone.
Your legacy will be the choices you made.
The desperation and negative consequences those choices had for millions.
That is what history will remember you for.
