It all started with an angry post on Instagram. Publishing a photo of a letter from the Home Office, the Home Office, which denied him ” a document certifying permanent residence “, The head chef protested:” I love Britain, I used to consider it my country until today, but they tell me, after twenty-three years of paying taxes and VAT, that I am no longer welcome. “
Besides the fact that there were parts missing in his request, Claude Bosi especially did not ask for the document most suited to his situation. The Home Office reminds us of this in a press release to put an end to the controversy: ” Bosi did not apply for the EU citizen registration system, the EUSS. He asked for a permanent resident document, which EU citizens living in the UK are not encouraged to do. “
On the British ministry’s website, we read that holders of the permanent residence document are invited, once Brexit has become a reality, to register… with the EUSS. This system was set up expressly for the approximately 3.5 million European nationals wishing to remain in the Kingdom. It was to this option that Claude Bosi was ultimately directed by the British administration, so it is unlikely that the French chef will be forced to leave his restaurant and his London life.
