Now that the consultation process between the UK Government and the British Overseas Territories Governments' has now taken place, and in principle, they support the removal of the historical discrimination against illegitimate children and their British Overseas Territories fathers, WHY are they choosing to drag their feet?
They say primary legislation is required. Well, you have an Immigration Bill going through parliament right now, why are you not choosing to use this legislation to fix the issue? The same discrimination for mainland UK illegitimate children born to mainland UK fathers was fixed using the Immigration Act 2014, Section 65. How is using this bill different? You have no excuse. Where there is a will there's a way.
It's the right & proper thing to do.
