In case you didn’t know the 1981 Nationality Act removed birthright citizenship in the UK. BUT the Act said children who had been here for minimum ten yrs were entitled to citizenship. And it never intended for “good character” requirements to strip children of their citizenship.
Hundreds of children have been denied their rightful citizenship bec they have *failed* Home Office’s harsh & cruel Good Character tests. These children are mostly BME & looked after children. @RunnymedeTrust @PRCBC1 and @AmnestyUK are asking for good character to be scrapped.
What most ppl don't realise is that the "good character" criteria affects ALL children who are entitled/need to register 4 citizenship. That includes *EU children* who have been born or raised here and whose parents don't have settled status @The3Million…
Govt are failing on so many levels re: children's British citizenship. 100's of children have lost citizenship. They haven't made ppl aware of registration, they're charging extortionate fees to register & they're applying inappropriate good character requirements #ChildrensDay
