What "fee" is this?

Don't tell me the Tories are planning to surcharge EU nationals working in public service. This is fucking retarded. Though sadly, entirely in keeping with the rest of the Tories' retarded approach to government.

Let's see ... the Tories are already trying to push through their own version of the Enabling Act with their Brexit bill, they've already tried to put in place their own employment version of the Nuremberg Laws, and now this ... what are they going to do for an encore, I ask myself ...

Nicola Sturgeon says her government will pay a so-called "settled status" fee of any EU citizen working in the public sector in Scotland.

Prime Minister Theresa May has offered settled status to EU migrants who have lived in the UK for five years. However, the UK government has hinted that those applying for the status will have to pay a fee.
