Britannia Waives The Rules gives an example of the folly of the U.K. Citizenship and Immigration Act proven by the story of the quandary of the author’s national status on passports, with contradictory endorsements and written advices by various officials of the British High Commission (Malawi), the Home Office and The Foreign and Commonwealth office. These range from “British Subject: Citizen of Rhodesia and Nyasaland”, cancelled to “British Subject : Citizen of the U.K. and Colonies”, cancelled to “British Protected Person” and from “… no conditions are attached to your stay in the U.K. …” to “As you are a British Protected Person, you are subject to Immigration control” and from “ Your new passport describes you as a British Protected Person with the right to re-admission to the U.K”. and “You are not a British Citizen under the British Nationality Act 1981” to “The Secretary of State, in exercise of the powers conferred by the British Nationality Act 1981, has registered (the author) as a British Citizen”.
Dr, Patel’s story will attract the interest of legal immigration experts, members of Indian / Pakistani and East European communities residing in the U.K. both legally and illegally, as well as asylum seekers.
