Home Office rejects Nessie UK residency bid

An application to allow the Loch Ness Monster to remain a UK resident after Brexit has been declined.
Britain's decision to leave the European Union is likely to change many things, but Nessie - the legendary lake monster believed to reside in Scotland's Loch Ness - need not be one of them.

In a recent tongue-in-cheek Home Office residency application submission, members of an arts collective aimed to ensure that the creature would remain a permanent UK resident after Brexit.

Even going so far as to pay the £65 processing fee and attaching a "passport photo" of the lake denizen, the group's efforts ultimately proved futile as the application was turned down.

"We filed the application in good faith," said Hannah Kendaru of Glasgow's 'The Doing Group'.

"However, the process was a difficult one. Nessie has a reputation for being elusive - signatures, passport photos and other information were very difficult to obtain."

"Nessie has lived in Scotland for a long time. Yet, her origin is unknown. Due to the worries that Brexit has caused, it was only natural to apply for a residency permit."

Uh...if it exists it's an animal. Last time I checked animals aren't required to have legal residency, are they?

Unbelievable!  This is absolutely typical of the mind-blowing ignorance displayed during the Brexit debate. Nessie will remain a UK citizen until a successful Scottish Independence Referendum, and she will keep her EU passport privileges until Brexit is over. This is a non-issue.

Nessie is British anyway, He/it/She has certainly been here long enough to be naturalised.     By the way, lame crappy liberal lefty attempt at humour...

I agree with this decision, the British don't need some foreign monster pulling resources away from other giant monsters living in England at the moment. . .For the love of god people, isn't the Doctor overworked as is?
