Twitter Web App : EU Commission: 'We're convinced the UK regulators are very good, but we're definitely not in the game of comparing regulators across countries nor of commenting on claims as to who is better. This is not a football competition. We're talking about the life and health of people.' twitter.com/StefanieBolzen…

Twitter Web App : Rather worrying that the Conservative politician who will chair the monitoring authority for EU citizens rights will not deal with complaints, given that is its mandate. twitter.com/lisaocarroll/s…

iPhone : German word of the day:

🇩🇪 fremdschämen

A feeling of embarrassment and shame on behalf of someone else who doesn’t feel it while doing something awful ... like claiming Britain is “a much better country than” others, incl those who actually supported this vaccine development. twitter.com/rachaelvenable…

iPhone : This is a vital point. All this jingoistic nonsense has the potential to backfire very badly not just in terms of how the UK makes itself look externally (what happened yesterday was certainly very poor and has been received as such), but also the actual vaccination programme. twitter.com/jessicaelgot/s…

iPhone : Can the Home Office be de-radicalised? asks Jonn Elledge

"A major government department has [...] drifted into increasingly unhinged and extreme positions, which have seen it ruin the lives of law-abiding migrants and legitimate British citizens alike."

iPhone : 🎅📆 Day 3
EU citizens like Barbara in our Advent Calendar story today are part of communities all around the UK, always right there with us in good times and bad. That’s why we want to continue to ensure their rights are protected.

Please support us this Christmas so we can.

Twitter Web App : jesperg29🇩🇰🇬🇧 is the urgent need for bespoke messaging for specific groups - that might include translations into different languages for immigrants, or use of younger figureheads for students, maybe. Bottom line: it must not turn into a blame game. 2/2

Twitter Web App : jesperg29🇩🇰🇬🇧 I think any singling out of a specific group, whether those you mention or, say, students in the UK where similar points might be made, is problematic. I always worry that it simply just leads to generalisations and that that just backfires. Perhaps what this mostly highlights 1/

iPhone : Travellers certainly contributed to spreading Covid everywhere around the world. But that has nothing to do with immigrants. Plus it takes some beating for Kurz to argue this given Austria’s tourism industry, and the desire to keep it open, played such a big role in ...

iPhone : Not surprising, but that doesn’t make it any less despicable: Austria’s Chancellor effectively blaming Coronavirus spike on immigrants who travelled to their countries of birth in the summer for holidays and then returned to Austria. He clearly states it was them in particular. twitter.com/maxlwerner/sta…

iPhone : Our new pod is a great chat with Grace Blakeley about her new book The Corona Crash.
We discuss her beginnings in politics, the economic trouble looming before the pandemic, 21st century capitalism, & how our economies should be planned. Listen at bit.ly/GraBla #NAFNC

iPhone : 🎅📆 Day 2
Growing up in the UK or coming to make our home here as a young person - an experience of so many EU citizens.
That’s why we’re proud to have a Young Europeans Network to give them a voice

We want to continue this work, so we hope you'll support our Christmas Appeal

iPhone : Why is it so difficult to recognize this important step forward as a great international effort and success. I really don't think this is a national story. In spite of the German company BioNTech having made a crucial contribution this is European and transatlantic. twitter.com/aloksharma_rdg…

Twitter Web App : Alok Sharma It truly is embarrassing and, frankly, pathetic to try and use this for some 'patriotic' point scoring about how the UK led this charge when the vaccine was developed by an international team of scientists in Germany and is being manufactured by a US company in Belgium.

iPhone : EU citizens set to face Brexit ‘discrimination’ from landlords and employers, London Mayor Sadiq Khan warns
