Kirsty Brimelow QC speaks to ITV news on the Home Secretary’s latest proposal to strip British citizenship from those with dual nationality who have committed serious crimes. She talks of the fundamental right to citizenship and that it should not be taken away on the basis of behaviour. This is a melding of immigration policy into criminal law and sends out a concerning message as to the UK’s weak perception of universality and its approach to the spirit of international law.
