DO you feel like an immigrant when you go back to the UK? Do you feel you are treated differently to British people that still live there? Christine Hayes does!
Christine said, “Did you know British nationals wait six weeks to claim Job Seekers Allowance and other benefits? EU nationals entering the country have to wait three months, which seems fair. If you live abroad and return to the UK you are classed as an immigrant in your own country and made to wait three months too.”
Everybody assumes that as a British citizen you have the same rights as any other Briton, irrelevant of where you live, but Christine believes this might not be the case. Asking for answers from a government that has dissolved until May 7 doesn’t help either, and therefore she has set up a group on Facebook to help rally troops for the assault on the UK Gov website when it comes back online.
Christine went on to add: “British-born citizens should not be treated like immigrants when they return to the UK. The government is discriminating against its own people.
“Many worked in the UK for years, they should not be classed as an immigrant in their own country of birth. Something needs to be done about this.”
