Episode 27 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast
Ellen cuts through the stramash of UK politics to discuss the (lack of) progress of Brexit and what the latest developments have meant for the rights of EU citizens living in the UK – particularly how the Settled Status scheme has failed to secure those rights and has led to months of uncertainty and the possibility of discrimination against EU citizens.
Ellen then discusses her proposals made to the Scottish Government on how they could help improve and secure these rights even though immigration is largely a reserved area. She suggests policies such as an EU citizens Residency Card, an anti-discrimination hotline and a Working Group to help come up with other solutions.
