The Home Office is charging EU citizens £65 to apply to stay in the UK after Brexit and people are furious.


Whatever side of the Brexit debate you were on, we can all agree that no one was precisely sure what would happen next and most people still aren't. But with the deadline for Brexit approaching, the Home Office has released a video notifying EU citizens on the next steps to apply for UK citizenship. Given the sensitive nature of this subject, particularly considering that EU nationals have freely moved and settled in the UK for years and that 48 per cent of voters didn't vote for Brexit in the first place, people aren't happy.

Even though we knew this was coming this is an awful, ugly moment. To my European friends, I’m so sorry.

24 years served in the military and I have to apply and pay for my Slovakian wife and son to have the right to stay here. Disgusted and angry don’t come close to how I feel. People need to wake up and realise what the UK has become!!

But most controversial was the new information that EU citizens will have to pay £65 per application a substantial amount of money to secure rights they currently have.

EU citizens should not have to pay for rights they currently have to stay here. The Scottish Government led the debate and won the Scottish Parliament's support calling for the UK to scrap the fee. 
Better still - scrap Brexit
