Notwithstanding my remark to Andrew, I an considering taking dual nationality. The reason is when contracting with EU organisations that have a security dimension to part of the work, the relevant agency confines material access to EU nationals.

Yes I'm sure colleagues not fortunate enough to have that consideration will fully understand your dilemma, it's the way of modern politics after all, votes without consequences when you can just side step the result.

Re: Britain outside the EU

If, and that is a big If, Scotland got its independence I would be entitled to a Scottish passport via my granddad.


He said that he was born a Scotsman, but will die a Brit and proud to have served for King and country, and would respect the Queen until his last breath

Many, many generations back so too distant to give dual nationality.

John Le Carre said "The jingoistic England that is trying to march us out of the EU, that is an England I don't want to know."

Re: Britain outside the EU

I'm entitled to an Irish passport - ironically through a Norn Iron grandparent who would sooner have died than be an Irish citizen. Apparently if I get one, the rest of my family is then entitled.

But I have absolutely no intention of doing so.

I would get one because of my mum. If (lots of ifs here!) Scotland got independence and EU membership, I would be all over that for me and most definitely for my kids for some of that sweet free movement action

Re: Britain outside the EU

Cor !! Imagine having dual nationality of Scottish & Irish, there's enough material there to keep the (good) old comedians going for a summer season at Blackpool

Re: Britain outside the EU

Even I can't see why the Prime Minister's spokesperson can't celebrate Brexit.
Quote:
BBC's Laura Kuenssberg awkwardly corrected on-air after she discussed 'celebrating' Brexit

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg was awkwardly cut off on-air during her introduction on a new episode of Brexitcast as she discussed "celebrating" the three-month anniversary of Brexit.


Laura Kuenssberg was awkwardly interrupted on-air during her introduction on the BBC's three-month Brexit anniversary edition of its podcast Brexitcast. The BBC political editor reflected on the Brexit anniversary and remarked the BBC team were back together "to celebrate" Britain's departure. However, fellow BBC journalist and chief BBC News political correspondent Adam Fleming interjected and said they were there to "mark" the anniversary.

all the other papers/media are taking their story from this site - also, its run on a free theme (newsup) on Wordpress - not many (if any) legitimate news organisations would be doing this.

Looks like there's now some interviews with UK papers on how Brexit has impacted upon some Brits living in Spain.

Quote:
Brit expats and homeowners 'screwed over' by Brexit as retirement dreams dashed

EXCLUSIVE: Hard-working Brits who dreamed of a retirement dividing their lives between the UK and Europe say their plans are in ruins - with one pensioner forced to move home after 20 years in Spain

..In a further twist, one of the conditions that had to be met to gain residency was an income of 21,000 a year - ruling out thousands of UK pensioners living in Spain.

While many Brits who were able to sort out residency before the rule-change will be able to continue living the sun-soaked continental dream - others like those who own property or live on boats are seeing theirs dashed.

The Mirror spoke to two Brits, and an EU citizen married to one, who say Brexit has left their retirement plans in tatters.

The fuming 72-year-old pensioner, who asked to be anonymous, said despite living in Spain with his Russian partner and their children for two decades they face being separated under the country's new rules.

Re: Britain outside the EU

hmmm . . .

If I'd lived in Spain for 20 years and wanted to carry on living there, I'd have had thoughts about applying for citizenship once the referendum result was announced.

He's had a few years to look into it since then, did he or his family not think there may possibly be repercussions?

Re: Britain outside the EU

I know someone who retired early, rented out his house and moved to his second home in Tenerife.


I'll have to try and find out what he done.

Northern Ireland: Bus set on fire and photographer attacked in disorder in Belfast ahead of emergency meeting

A 13-year-old boy was one of nine people arrested following trouble in the country earlier this week and on the weekend.

Violence has again resumed on the streets of Belfast ahead of an emergency meeting of the Northern Ireland Assembly, with a bus hijacked and set on fire and a photographer attacked.

The scenes on Wednesday evening followed several nights of unrest in loyalist communities amid tensions over the controversial Northern Ireland Protocol in the UK and EU's Brexit deal and the police's handling of alleged lockdown breaches by Sinn Fein at the funeral of republican Bobby Storey...

Many people expressed concern about the potential for republican violence if there was a hard border on the island of Ireland after Brexit.

But few seem to have considered the potential for loyalist violence in the event of a border in the Irish Sea.
