    Makes sense, our borders are so porous we don't know the names or numbers.

    Bet they find half a million extra not registered for tax.

    It's nothing to be concerned about. They just have to register and wear an EU badge on their clothing to be readily identified.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Unlike other European countries, Britain does not operate an ID card system or require EU citizens from other countries to register their presence on arrival.
    Perhaps if the UK had brought this in like other EU countries you'd have been able to implement the other EU regulations such as removing people that don't have a job after 3 months, etc, and the country wouldn't be in the position it's in now.

    no argument, every country I've worked in around Europe, I've had to register as soon as I got there

    if Britain doesn't have such a system and doesn't have this under control, better late than never, pretty damn quick get a solution in place and get it under control

    The UK is designing a new EU badge to be used post Brexit. It looks almost identical to what mods used to wear on the back of their jackets...

    Can we get a list of all the UK citizens abroad so their citizenship can be cancelled post Brexit?

    ID cards specifically targeted non-EU citizens and because we, British, got rid of ID cards after WWII - there was a court trial over it - campaigners didn't want them back.

    On another note as EEA citizens have to go through passport control to get in to the UK we should have simply got them to register on their way in and those with no address simply shouldn't have been allowed in as this means they plan on sleeping rough e.g. can't support themselves.

    BTW that would have meant a new computer system.
