Rejected petition Give non-British citizens who are key workers automatic citizenship.
Give Key workers who are EU and other Nationals automatic UK citizenship if they stay and risk their own lives looking after the British people during the COVID crisis.
During this COVID19 outbreak , the UK could not function without staff who come from many different countries. Brexit has already affected morale for many. Due to the COVID pandemic, we are asking these key workers to risk their lives to look after the British people while their own families are far away. This is a chance for the British Government and Public to show them how much we appreciate their invaluable contribution to our society.
