I welcome that @theresa_may today announced the scrapping of the fee for #SettledStatus. I welcome this because I know it will help EU citizens secure their status. However, this changes nothing about the underlying problem: the fact that we have to APPLY to stay in our home. 1/
Mrs May made reference to eliminating the financial hurdle. That is positive, yes. But all other hurdles remain in place. Even during the small-scale trials significant numbers of EU citizens could not immediately be granted settled status because something went wrong. 2/
From records not being found to the ID check not working. Those are the real, and much more serious, issues. In addition, the UK govt is doing little to help EU citizens, and outreach is limited. We also urgently need #citizensrights to be ring-fenced for the event of no deal. 3/
So as much as I welcome this news today because I know it will help fellow EU citizens, don't be fooled: it is not really all that much of an improvement in the big scheme of things because we all still have to apply. 4/4
