186,000 Polish children as "key card" hostages in UK

Letter to Editor of The Daily Telegraph. From Wiktor Moszczynski, 48 Inglis Road, London W5 3RW tel 07786471833 Dear Sir, Now that Theresa May has nailed her colours so emphatically to the mast on Brexit ("It is wrong to sneer at patriotism" 04/10/2016) and the process of indigenisation of British industry and the NHS is in full swing perhaps the Government should bite the bullet and pay its debt of honour to those 2.9 million EU citizens in this country who have worked or settled here and contributed so much to the British economy. It is breathtakingly cynical for the Trade Secretary to proudly display these people as a "key card" in a 3 year poker game with EU diplomats when it is the UK that has chosen to leave the EU and not the other round. I am thinking, in particular, of the 186,000 Polish children in the UK, a potential great asset to Britain with its current alarmingly low birth rate, suddenly feeling alienated towards the country they were expecting to live in. Yours faithfully, Wiktor Moszczynski
