Silverfern is absolutely right. This is the reason why we started that project in the first place. However, people who have improved their work situation here have found it easier to turn their backs... It's a shame, given that there were certain stages, which, once followed, could have led to a positive result. But, once again, we are more concerned with what things will be regarded as, the general impression and, why not, some criticism here and there,because that really sets things going... Let me reiterate: I have nothing to gain out of this; I'm not a dependent and will obtain the Blue Card using other means. However, as Taranu stated, it is about our rights as EU citizens and about the discrepancies between the UK regulations of both the UKBA and DWP and what is actually stipulated in the EU Treaty. (second rate citizens? of course we are, no matter what we do, it's just a scar we have to bear because of certain not so well-behaved individuals) This is by no means a political matter...but an unfair interpretation and mistreatment.
