Brexit credit refusal?

I recently applied for an increase on my credit card limit with the Nationwide Building Society in the UK.

I was declined and appealed. I have now been informed that my appeal was unsuccessful and the reason was that I “live abroad”.

I have asked for confirmation in writing, which to date has not come. I have lived in France permanently since November 2012 and have obtained three increases on my limit in November 2014, February 2016 and February 2017. I am sure this is one of the many consequences of a “No deal Brexit”.
