Hello Dapto and all
Thank you for your brief which I do agree with it at this moment of time.and I do not think that the Home Office people are working from home ..but they might be of a less capacity due to self isolation sickness etc.similar to the NHS even none clinical staff are still working. However and in general although it is a privilege to become a citizen , it is that feeling of unfairness amongst the same group of people that are treated differently ..while some are getting theirs in few weeks , others are waiting months or even years with no clear clarification. If we all are treated similarly then yes..
All the best for everybody ..stay safe
I agree in one thing - it is a privilege. The rest I am afraid I am not accepting.
You mentioned that people are free to do what they want. But let me remind you that some class of people (like refugees) they cannot leave the country at all, as according to Immigration Rules these people are not allowed to hold national passport. Yes, they can have the Travel Documents, but not all countries accepting them. And still some refugees have families in their own countries and problems, which must be resolved and closed for the rest of their lives. So without a proper British passport, these people (refugees) cannot do legally anything at all. I am sorry but before advising you should have taken into account different class of people and their legal status in the UK.
Also you say it is a privilege. Do people, who work and support this country and who pay Income Tax, National Insurance Tax, Council Tax, Capital Gain Tax, Inheritance Tax and other type of taxes deducted directly or indirectly from their earnings and assets, deserve this privilege? Do they deserve being humiliated by poor and disrespectful behaviour by the government organisation, who is fully supported from the fiscal policy?! (Rrhetorical questions)
It is a privilege, but you pay a lot of money for this privilege! I think if you pay money, you should get professional, fair, straightforward service. Why some people, who paid the same price for naturalisation should get it within 3 months, and other must wait? There must a standard equal procedure in place created by Home Office.
In addition to it everyone has a limited life (50, 60, 75 years) and I think no one wants to spend their life just waiting and hoping for something that it WILL eventually arrive one day...
