Report Brexit What Happens Next Thread ---multiple merged threads. in House prices and the economy Posted June 7, 2019 15 minutes ago, Riedquat said: There are probably lots of passports that I don't think should've ever been given out, but once someone has one they're a British citizen as much as any other, and therefore it's no more right to take one off such a person than it is with someone who's had every ancestor for the last 2000 years here. All British citizens should be 100% equal; the only exception I can think of is if there was fraud in the application. There have been some controversial decisions to strip of citizenship, including for espionage. There's therefore currently two unequal classes of citizens, born and naturalized; the latter is far less secure. Also, if parents of a child born British are naturalized, the latter can still be in trouble should parents retain the second citizenship. Now, I think it's an absolutely wrong to strip people of citizenship on essentially a whim of Home Secretary as per current system, there's no definite list of offenses for which it can happen. On the other hand, I (a naturalized citizen) think it's wrong to allow keeping second citizenship while becoming British.
