I'm a new subscriber to Crunchyroll and every single anime that I've typed in to watch has been restricted for my region due to liscensing. Please can more be added because I haven't been able to watch FMA brotherhood, One Piece, Gurren Lagann and tonnes of others! It's ridiculous.
I don't know what I'm paying for at this point it doesn't seem worth it for the UK.

Series not available in the UK are usually not available because another company in the region holds the rights. If you can buy a release of the series by a local publisher, it usually means that the license for streaming is not currently on the market.

Basically everything I want to watch that isn't from the past couple of years is unavailable to me. Yet the subscription fee for the UK is higher than the US subscription when they can watch everything.

Have you checked other streaming services to see if they have the shows you are looking for? For example, I recalled that the U.S. Netflix catalog had both FMA;Brotherhood and Gurren Lagann. So, I did a quick google search to see if the UK catalog had it as well. It does seem to have it. That means two of the shows the OP was looking are actually available via another common streaming service. Maybe the shows you're looking for are, as well.

(Note: This doesn't invalidate your complaint or anything. Just trying to help)

It is indeed annoying
If we wanna watch BnH TG:re and others we kinda have to go watch on "illegal" sites
And then they ask us to not do that so we keep the industry going?

Well than give us the goddamn animes and/or if you're unable to doit license once for all Funimation in EU
You pay less than CR but you have way more anime and Dub aswell
