Remove Gisela Stuart as chair of the inquiry into the future of EU-citizens in UK

Gisela Stuart MP is currently chairing an inquiry into the future of EU-citizens in the UK after the Brexit referendum. Before the referendum, Ms Stuart was a leading voice of the campaign for the UK to leave the EU, despite the fact that she herself was born in Germany and benefitted from freedom of movement, which allowed her to embark on a successful political career in the UK.
During the referendum campaign, Ms Stuart demonstrably colluded with those parts of the Leave camp who spread untruths about the EU and about EU migrants. This has resulted in a surge in anti-immigrant sentiment and racist attacks, as well as putting all EU citizens in the UK currently in a state of limbo over their future right to remain in the country.
When confronted with her responsibility for creating this situation, and asked to urgently resolve it in her new role as chair of the inquiry by a concerned EU-citizen, Ms Stuart responded in a highly insulting and unprofessional way:
(edit: "gemein" in German means "mean")
The letter can be read here:
(the original was in German)
We therefore believe that Ms Stuart is morally and professionally unfit to represent the interests of EU-citizens in the UK, and urge for her removal from her role as chair of the inquiry.
