I was born in London in 1987.
I have a British birth certificate.
English is my only language.
I have only ever lived in England.
I have grown up, gone to school, university and worked here and paid my taxes.
My father is British, my great grandfather died in WWII and I can trace my family tree in England to the 1500's.
I cannot get a British passport....
My mother is Danish and moved here when she was sixteen. She did not marry my dad, if she had there would be no problem.
The passport office even got my mother to show all her tax earnings before I was born (26 years ago) but because she didn't work when she was pregnant and after they want my mum to prove how she lived. It's simple my dad worked and paid the bills but they won't take him into account because they weren't married even though he is on my birth certificate. They even asked for bank details but who can find that kind of information from 26 years ago?
I feel so insulted and the whole process has had nothing to do with who I am.
I have the option of trying to get a Danish passport but it will take up to 18 months to process and the forms are in Danish....I don't speak/read Danish.
I don't know what to do. All this because my parents didn't get married.

Well I tell you what, I wish you the very best of luck.
Nothing makes me as angry at this country, as when its government makes life impossible for its residents.
From what I have seen of somewhere called Somerset levels, in England? he should be lucky he does not live there as well, seems that place has been underwater for months!
My father is British
