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

I don't think anyone really minds about a registration process, after all the UK is one of the only countries in Europe that doesn't have some form of registration for its own citizens AUIU? The problem is the implementation - and worse, an implementation that appears designed to make it impossible to comply with requirements
There have been loads of issues surrounding it, from the app being rolled out long before the beta testing had been fully completed, the first few days of the site crashing, to people paying the fee then the fee being revoked, to only certain phones being able to use the app, to self employed people all being declined and sent for referal, etc... But the biggie, the one that a lot of legal eagles have picked up upon is, it's a hell of a lot of data being divulged on a system that hadn't been fully tested, and with no indication of how that information will be stored and used in the future.

Unlike registering in Switzerland, many EU residents in the UK have been told to submit their income records for the last 6yrs. Can you honestly imagine how you would feel if you were told to register in CH via a mobile app? Wouldnt you prefer meeting a real person and having paperwork handed over securely and signed for?

This is just a huge cover up for the fact that the gov do not have the manpower, time and resources to register the 3 million before 29 March. All the info is probably floating on a cloud just waiting to be hacked, and it's a great target for anyone with half a mind to.

A bit of light reading for anyone who's interested...
