Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
The EU is an organisation which grants privileges to Swedes and Estonians in the United Kingdom which are denied Pakistanis and Jamaicans, despite our shared history and heritage.
The UK decided to join the EU, the UK participated in those decisions without resorting to a veto and confirmed every treaty change and on top of that the UK alone gets to decide the citizenship rights of Pakistanis, Jamaicans and all other residents in the UK.

If a shared history and heritage was of such concern, then why does the UK not simple grant full UK citizenship to all such persons. The EU has absolutely no role is such a decision.
