EU will Veto Brexit Unless Theresa May Stops disregarding Citizens’ Rights



On her three-day trip to China, the Prime Minister of United Kingdom Theresa May astonished the people by toughening her rules on EU migrants. According to her, the EU citizens who arrived to UK after March 2019, when it leaves the EU, will be treated differently from those who are already settled.

To show their objections, the EU diplomats threatened the Prime Minister to veto Brexit, unless she retreat from her “shameful” plans to divest the EU citizens of their rights. Opposing their request she said “what we’re doing now is doing the job that the British people asked the government to do, which is to deliver on Brexit.” She also added that “in doing that they did not vote for nothing to change when we come out of the EU.”

Her sudden decision has been followed by a wide range of criticisms. People from both EU and UK have shown their severe oppositions. There are some documents which show that EU diplomats would stop Brexit if May ignores the citizen’s right. Guy Verhofstadt, the EU Parliament’s coordinator for Brexit, expressed that human rights are “not negotiable.”

“Citizens’ rights during the transition is not negotiable. We will not accept that there are two sets of rights for EU citizens. For the transition to work, it must mean a continuation of the existing acquis with no exceptions,” Verhofstadt posted on Twitter.

People, authorities, and political figures used their Facebooks, twitters and other Social Medias to show their rage and opposition toward May’s recent decision. They believe that she’s undermining citizens’ rights abroad.
