"Former Leader of the Lords Lord Strathclyde warned that voting for the amendment would 'put at risk the future of a million British citizens living in the EU' by weakening Mrs May's negotiating hand. " ^^^ in a nutshell ^^^ T Looks like the Remainers in the House of Lords trying to force the Government to play softball when the EU are going to play hardball...?... Remainers always on the look out for ways to make their doom and gloom prophesies come true - no matter what harm that does to the country -- Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer hailed the defeat as a 'really welcome and important step forward'." ^^^ mmmmm a step forward towards what...?.... interfering with the negotiation from the side lines..? This looks more like the Remain supporters in the Lords flexing their muscles as a show of force and distrust -rather than any real care about EU nationals - who IMO don't have anything to worry about anyway - and at the end of the day aren't refugees - they have perfectly safe countries to return to if they wanted to -- just like the Brits living abroad do --- but if both groups have settled in other European countries different to their country of origin then apart from a few 'grey area' cases which can be fought in the courts - they don't have to get worried over scare tactics from the referendum losers - .
