Hi Miguel

I'm really interested for an update on your application for settled status. How did you get on?

Best wishes

Debbie

Hi, a little update.

I eventually submitted my Settled Status application last week and I've just received confirmation that I have Indefinite Leave to Remain under the EU Settlement Scheme. I did not declare any criminal record, so it appears I didn't have to, otherwise the H.O. would have thrown an exception, as they surely check against the Police database.

Next stage could be UK citizenship, maybe, but I'll have to wait a full year anyway.

Congratulations on your success! It's good to know the system actually works.

Robert Lightfoot, former head of NASA, said it succinctly in his parting speech in April 2018: Protecting against risk and being safe are not the same thing ... [W]e must move from risk management to risk leadership. From a risk management perspective, the safest place to be is on the ground. From a risk leadership perspective, I believe thats the worst place [we] can be.

Well done, that must be a relief for you.

On British citizenship, you should take the full year to consider whether you want to elect to be English, Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish - if you have friends from any of those countries, I'm sure they wil try and convince you theirs is the best!

Hi Miguel - I was only joking.

Many years ago I had an American colleague who was applying for British citizenship and we told him he had to choose one of the four home nations and got everyone in the office to start lobbying him on behalf of their country (the Scotsman got carried away with the bottle of whisky and shortbread biscuits). Great wind up that went on for several days....

If Scotland was independent, I'd hurry up and claim citizenship right now. I'd walk to Aberdeen barefoot (way more than 500 miles from here!).

I hear what you're saying. I could claim Scottish citizenship by marriage. Even though I haven't seen my wife for years, we're still married. Sadly, my Irish ancestry is one generation too far back for me to claim. Sad

Same here!

The most beautiful part of the UK (one of the most beautiful places in the world), brilliant people and by far the most sensible place politically.

I've heard it said that New Zealand was created to compensate antipodeans for being so far from Scotland.... Wink
