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