    Default UK-based Poles call for revolt against having to apply for settled status

    A Polish chef who has worked with Mary Berry and Jamie Oliver is leading a revolt by UK-based Poles against the Home Office’s requirement that EU citizens apply for settled status as part of Brexit.

    More than 7,000 people have signed a petition launched this week by Damian Wawrzyniak on the UK government and parliament website to change the wording of the settlement status process from “application” to “registration”. At 10,000 signatures, the government must respond.

    Wawrzyniak, a former chef at Noma in Copenhagen who has worked in Britain for 15 years and established his own UK restaurants, originally backed Brexit on the basis that it would make it easier for restaurants to select British produce ( ). But he has changed his mind and says he will ultimately refuse to apply to live in the country he now calls home.

    Backing has already come from the food writer Nigel Slater and the MP for Tottenham, David Lammy, who tweeted that “future generations will be appalled that to appease the hard right we made EU citizens apply to stay in their own homes”.

    It was a bit unfair for them to say that about you

    Lets be honest, they have to provide id and show that they haven't got criminal convictions.

    Well some Polish guys thought Brexit was good for business: BREXiT - ENERGY DRINK although it didn't all go to plan: EU rejects trademark for 'offensive' Brexit energy drink | Metro News
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    No, they have to provide ID and declare Criminal Convictions. Then a decision is made.

    So, snowflakes, what is the problem?

    Is this the same bloke who chef'd for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their trip to Poland?

    Even though he's been based in the UK for the past 15 years building up his chain of restaurants?

    Don't the Royal family trust resident chefs in Poland? Do they need to fly in their own?

    No, that’s not all that needs to be done.
