Dr Matthew Gibney writes for the Guardian on the erosion of Britons' rights to citizenship

Theresa May has said she wants to extend her powers to strip citizenship from suspected terrorists, even if doing so renders them stateless. Under current law the home secretary may denaturalise anyone with dual nationality whose UK citizenship is deemed by her to be "not conducive to the public good". But if May has her way, even British-only nationals will lose their citizenship. The consequences will be profound.
