Have you guys ever heard of this? What do you think? (Pictured is Theresa May, current UK PM and former Home Secretary. She has issued more deprivation orders than any Home Secretary in the last 70 years.)

The UK government has the ability to revoke the nationality of a British citizenship where it is 'conducive to the public good' to do so. However, the individual cannot be made stateless - they must have another nationality to fall back on. In 2014, a new law was passed allowing for deprivation of citizenship even where the person would be made stateless, provided that:

a) they are a naturalised citizen
b) they have conducted themselves in a manner seriously prejudicial to vital UK interests
c) the UK gov believes they are able to become a national in another country.

Personally, I think deprivation of citizenship is shit, a pathetically easy and secretive way of the UK gov preventing UK citizens returning to the UK. The Special Immigration Appeal Commission uses 'closed material procedures' where the individual is never told what they are accused of and neither is their lawyer. They're excluded from the court proceedings at thw whim of the gov and represented by a gov-appointed "Special Advocate" that they aren't allowed to speak to.

I know in the US it's much much harder to lose your nationality - you can basically only lose it voluntarily. What do you think about the UK laws?
