Re "other ex-pats", I wonder how it is for the ones in Spain.: I'm pretty certain that my baby brother had to relinquish his UK citizenship when he moved to Spain, as they do not allow dual citizenship.


I think it works more in terms of dual-citizenship is not "recognized" as opposed to not "allowed".

When in Britain, I'm British....when I'm in the U.S., I'm American, etc.
It's paperwork/formality more than anything else. And never really an issue unless you're making a permanent move.

Spain does not allow dual citizenship. You are either in or out.

And neither does the U.S.
But because 'D.C.' is not legal, doesn't mean it's illegal, surely?? Wouldn't it just mean it has "no legal standing".

US allows it but doesn’t recognise it. My sister is in the states and has US and Aussie.

Other countries flat out won’t allow you to hold their citizenship and another.

I’ve got NZ and Aus citizenship and a passport for both. I have to use the passport of each country for entering and exiting said country, all other countries I get to choose, just have to enter and leave on the same one.

I found out the hard way of my Aussie passport expires I can’t just use the NZ one in and out of Aussie. Very nearly got left on the heli deck one trip back from work and got told off by immigration on my way back in.

I was wrong, maybe the Tory Party does have a bright new future.

If/when we reach a point where it looks like No Deal is inevitable then it is possible for May to trigger emergency legislation on the basis that this is a national emergency we need to prepare for it.

As i understand it, the speaker of the house decides what happens if Parliament cannot agree on anything.

She also said that if her Party do not back her there may be no Brexit at all. How tempting.

Could you imagine the amount of crap that would be spewed I'd parliament was dissolved and an election called..

Only needs 15% of Tory MPs.

Nissan are also worried. No surprise.

I can see a lot of car manufacturers moving to the mainland. It won't take much to do.

With Mrs May saying there's no special treatment for workers you know that the EU will do the same, which means that anyone made redundant here will not be able to go to the EU to the new factories.

I really hope not.
However, given the implications of the likely trade complications, they'd be daft (suicidal) not to really. :(

The EU has struck a deal with Japan. So it makes sense for the Japanese to take advantage and promote the new relationship.

I thought it meant ‘rusty pile of shit’

50% of Nissan cars made in Sunderland are exported for sale in the EU. That will no longer make commercial sense under WTO rules especially as they are owned by Renault.

Would it make a difference?? Whether it's a Renault or a Nissan, the sale of either kind of car is more €€€s in the their collective bank accounts.

If it was "made in Sunderland", then the ideal option for the UK is to export the defective item in question to the USA & pray they don't return him.
