True Migration Value – Why the UK Economy is under Threat

In All, Brexit, British Citizenship, EU Referendum, EU Workers by Adam

Few people really appreciate the Migration Value in the UK, and rely of the usual bigoted remarks from the media to spur on the narratives we here. The whole EU referendum was debated and decided on the basis of a simplistic “either/or” which opened it up to ideological abuse. It meant that no-one really needed to explain anything: they just threw insult and jibes and hoped for the best. But we didn’t get the “best” in any way. Put aside individual voting preferences and you see both sides of the referendum lost out. 48% of the nation are lumbered with something they don’t want. Even worse, they will now never get to know what the reformed alternative could have been. We’ve been left with a situation where the fight seems to be more about allowing Brexit to do as little …

British Citizenship Solicitors: Recognising Responsibility over Rights

In All, British Citizenship, EU Referendum by Adam

Having British Citizenship as a mark of identity is not something we often talk about as Brits.  We are a stiff upper lip nation who are more likely to nod politely, and grunt nonchalantly when it comes to national pride.

It was a friend of mine who recently asked me what …

Brexit and British Citizenship: a Compatibility Crisis?

In All, Brexit, British Citizenship by Adam

With Trump’s attitude to immigration ignoring the irony of his own past, there is a great risk that there could be implications for attitudes towards immigration in general. We are no angels either, as I have discussed in previous blogs. Rising visa and appeal prices (and U-turns); increases in salary requirements; guesses on what the EU migration policy will be post-Brexit; all bubbling up tension for what might be coming over the next two years. British Citizenship is looking even more precious than before. In the past we have rubbed shoulders closely with the US quite significantly on many world issues, not least the whole Blair/Bush affair.  Some still blame the current climate of terror on that earlier intervention back in 2001 onwards. The “War On Terror” – as it was named – is still rippling and rumbling, and there are …
