George Galloway: We must take high ground and guarantee rights of EU nationals

'We must take the moral high ground and guarantee the rights of EU nationals', says George Galloway

George Galloway believes people cannot be used as bargaining chips

George Galloway believes the rights of EU nationals in the UK must be guaranteed to ensure Britain commands the moral high ground in the Brexit negotiations.

The House of Lords has backed an amendment to the Brexit bill which guarantees the rights of EU nationals living in the UK and it is urging the Government not to overturn it.

The talkRADIO presenter believes the House of Lords is "seizing the moral high ground" and this must be applauded.

"What could be a higher ground than to say to the nest of vipers in Brussels, 'whether you deport British citizens from the European Union or not, we’re sufficiently civilised to say we will not deport the European Union citizens living here in Britain,'" Galloway said.

He admitted that whilst "a poker payer never shows their cards before bidding" this is different as "people are not bargaining chips, people are more important than chips in a poker game or any other kind of game."
