  5. A ‘jolly’ message this Christmas from govt to say Brexit means we want to charge you to live in the country you have made your home and contributed so much to over decades. EU friends and neighbours - you deserve so much better than this. UK - be better than this! #brexithaos

  6. What a mean, petty, ugly face Britain's current government is putting on the country.

  7. Just told my 83-year old German mum, who has lived here since 1964, that she’ll have to go through (& pay for) this process - to prove to the Home Office who she is, & that she’s not a criminal. I tried hard, but couldn’t really explain why. It’s an awful stain on our country.

  11. I deliberately said “widespread”. Many of the people who are upset are fine with existing migration policy and others complain that we didn’t use more draconian measures on EU immigration beforehand.

  13. Yes - there are people criticising the tweet who support the end of free movement and in some cases also support the hostile environment, detention and so on.

  14. Have resisted commenting about this to avoid going postal in a manner not suitable for a Twitter family readership. Let’s just say: it’s pants. And - as some of us have written ... - such “your-papers-please!” schemes are all a bit un-British. Continental even ... Oh the irony

  16. Next year I am going to have to ask my nearly 90 year old mother in law who has been living in the UK for 70 years and who has worked and raised a family here to register and pay over £60 so she can stay; I don't care what your political persuasion is, this is not right #Brexit
