After demonising EU citizens as benefit tourists two days ago, Boris Johnson has now shamefully turned his attack on their children.
This attack is straight out of the Farage-Trump playbook. Not only is it cruel, it’s completely absurd.
The Government’s own Migration Advisory Committee has shown that there is ‘no evidence that migration has reduced school choice or the educational attainment of UK-born pupils’. More than that, EU families in the UK pay billions more in taxes than they receive in welfare and public services. Our schools rely on over 20,000 teachers from the EEA too.
Only the Liberal Democrats will stop Brexit, protect EU citizens’ rights and reverse school cuts so that every child can succeed in life.
