David Cameron has pledged another’crackdown’ on non EU migrants. These are either people with skills we need or family members of those who are entitled to settle. Like my African wife.
It has taken 7 years and roughly £5000 to get to the point whereby she can obtain British citizenship. She has passed the citizenship test, has an O level in English, her country speaks English as a first language. She has a job in customer service. This still isn’t good enough.
A rude and nasty letter has arrived from the Home Office warning that she attend a meeting within 7 days or that her naturalisation application will be rejected. The test is for ten minutes of ‘conversational English’. Kerching. Another £150 please. What a corrupt, fetid, stinking government. All because they can’t pick on Europeans I presume.
