With developing unease I read the tale about kindred EU resident Monique Hawkins, whose application for an archive guaranteeing changeless residency was dismissed by the Home Office despite the fact that she appears to have completely conformed to the tenets while presenting her application (Report, 29 December). I am German, 61 years of age, wedded to a British spouse and 16 years in the UK. During these time I did my best to incorporate. I worked, never asserted any advantage and partook in group life through intentional work. The general population around me never let me feel “remote” or unwelcome and really treat me like a kindred national. Like Mrs Hawkins, I never thought it was important to have my movement status ensured. This changed after the Brexit vote, in light of the fact that the life my better half and I have fabricated together completely relies upon my entitlement to stay in the UK. Thus, I additionally chose to apply for British citizenship, which requires affirmation of changeless residency.B1A1241 B1A1798 B1A2356 B1A1498
