EU citizens needed to staff NHS and schools
I AM writing to you today following the release of a new figures showing that following the Brexit vote two years ago, huge numbers of EU citizens are leaving their vital roles in our public services.
The numbers make for stark reading. In the north west, the ambulance service, the Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust and the University of Manchester are worst hit with the proportion of EU nationals leaving, rising by 100 per cent, 96pc and 26pc respectively in the last two years.
And who can blame them? With years of uncertainty and a hostile environment, we no longer seem the welcoming nation these people came here to be a part of. We need these EU citizens staffing our public services if we want to protect the NHS and deliver a first class education system for our children.
These figures are further evidence that we need the public to have the final say on the Brexit deal, to check if Theresa May’s botched Brexit deal is still the will of the people.
We are calling on all our local MPs to vote down Theresa May’s deal, and to back a final say for the people in line with the wishes of their constituents.
