Why not? Re post-Brexit: I'm interested in arguments on why (the predominantly white) people living in the EU should get priority over higher qualified, more experienced and more capable staff/academics/entrepreneurs from the rest of the world. And I don't buy this nonsense about how complicated it is to get the paperwork together. Sounds like a lawyer talking up his own game. It's not half as difficult as he makes out! Sign up to immigrationboards.com and benefit from the advice I, and others, have assembled there. You don't even need a lawyer for this! You just need a large dose of common sense and a little entrepreneurial spirit. I have been through the mill myself, getting together the documentation for my own application (which had some complicating factors far, far beyond the average self-employed immigrant-who-has-no-payslips issue). And I have helped others assemble the documentation they needed for ILR even under the 10 year rule and the 14 year concession! Trust me, getting documentary evidence to prove continuous stay for an applicant under the 14 year concession is significantly more difficult. Bear in mind that the average applicant under this concession was here illegally for most of those 14 years and devoted most of those years to assiduously getting rid of documents! But it's still possible in even those cases. It's not meant to be fun. But it's a piece of cake compared to the applications that non-EU immigrants go through. Stop moaning! Then they are not very entrepreneurial, are they?! If they were they'd just get their fingers out and get on with it. It's a bunch of documents, F*S!
