Scared of my future/brexit.

  • Just to say i talked to my parents and it is all under control. I will get back to you guys when its all sorted..............
    Hello I lived here for about 30 odd years and i have been schooled here and never broken the law.
    I was born in south Africa in 1987 and moved to the uk, my mum and dad are Belgium and we moved from Africa due to my dads job. I myself never really worked and I claimed jobseekers and dla at around 2012. 
    I was to have a paper claiming if i wanted to keep my Belgium passport but I never had it and my passport was revoked. 
    Only started saving recently to become British as to stay in the country. I am getting my papers sorted and then i can get a British passport but im scared if they say i cant become british and then deport me as i never really worked here.
    Everyone tells me not to worry but i just dont feel safe. I understand why people voted for brexit but i dont want to move as i will live in poverty and wont be safe in Africa. I have nothing there.
    My mum and dad worked in the uk for most my life and they are applying for British passport and what not. 
    I am not very good at saving and I have asked if I could have a loan on moneysavingexpert.com but they were pretty rude.
    I feel so bad im not sure if I deserve this at all, am a bad person? Will i get kicked out?
    Could you give me any advice?
    I did try to contact NAS but it said it was blocked not sure why as i have not used that email in years
    Kind regards.

  • So Cloudy Mountains you have a go at 'Angry Guy' for his response, yet you instruct me to "read the thread".

    I don't think my response to 'Angry guy" was either unfair or rude, so I stand by my comments to him. My response to you wasn't rude in any way. "Instructing" you to read the thread wasn't rude. I didn't mean you to take it badly, you did, but I can't help that.

    I told you to read the thread because he has contacted his parents on multiple occasions. They have also read the thread. LostOne87 says this. I thought you hadn't read the thread because you hadn't seemingly picked up on these points. If it sits easier with you think of it a a suggestion rather than an instruction.

    However I hope this means that his parents have taken over ALL of the dealings in this matter. If they feel their son was about to be scammed they should contact the Adult Protection Team. He needs someone local looking out for him.

    Exactly. I think that this has been expressed by multiple people in this thread. His parents have read this thread. In my opinion he wasn't getting much help from them. That's where my gripe was, not with you.

    It had nothing to do with you. I don't see why you think it would.

    As for "I can't print what I think" - please do, you seem to have had no problem previously. 

    I don't have any thoughts about you, except you do seem a bit hasty to take offence. Now you have some context, you can see there was no need to. My thoughts weren't concerned with you in the slightest.

    Look me, you, and "Angry guy" all seem to be concerned for the kid. As far as I'm concerned we are allies.

    The thing I'm most concerned about is that we haven't heard anything back yet.

  • A pretty angry response to a perfectly reasonable post. I explained that there was no need to take offence, but you have taken offence to that. I don't know what you want. I have nothing to apologise for, so I won't, as that would be insincere. You've had an explaination. If you read through my last response it's all covered there.

    With allies like you Cloudy Mountain, who needs enemies?

    So what have I done to impede any of us aiding LostOne87? Nothing. The only gripe you have is a personal one with me it seems. I don't see why I would be your enemy. I have no opinion on you apart from the one I last stated. You are quick to take offence, and now it seems quick to anger too. I don't see you as an enemy.

    You take no responsibility for any offence, blaming the recipient and even adding fuel to the fire.

    If you read my last post I said there was no need to take offence. I didn't blame the recipient, I stated a fact, you took it badly. You aren't a victim, so don't imply that you are. If I gave an explaination I didn't add fuel to the fire. I was perfectly cordial, and fully explained myself so the opposite is true. Read my post again. You even implied my response to "Angry Guy" was unreasonable. Attempting to tie my response to him, to a totally unrelated post you unnecessarily took offence to is a strawman tactic.

    Do you not see a pattern forming? No, bet you don't. 

    You seem to be getting angrier and more insulting with every reply. That's the pattern I'm starting to see. Again your issue with me and "Angry Guy" are totally unrelated. If you are OK with LostOne87 being called a liar, a troll, and someone who is trying to "drag it out", and you aren't OK with my defence of him, well, you seem to have things the wrong way around. I have my faith that this isn't the case, and you are just using it as a strawman to attempt to tie it into your own issue with me.

    You are making an issue of something that really isn't an issue. I think this has become somewhat personal for you now, that's a pity if that is the case. Again, there's nothing I can do about that.

    I was more than willing to bury the hatchet, I have explained myself twice now. Politely.

    "Angry guy" has been very helpful in this thread apart from his small outburst.

    There is no reason we shouldn't be allies, but I guess that's up to you.
