We would like to thank all EuroCitizens who sent off emails to peers to try to influence their vote. The coalition of UK citizen groups was unhappy that the Labour amendment did not mention the rights of Britons in Europe, but that does not alter our total support for unilateral action to safeguard the rights of our European counterparts in Britain.
In the next few days, the focus will move back to MPs as the bill returns to the Commons. With three-line whips and huge pressure on Conservative rebels from party bosses it looks unlikely that the amendment will go through. However, we will continue lobbying MPs.
You still have time to write to your old MP and to get your friends and family to do the same. They must realise that we are not bargaining chips!
