    Dual citizenship because of Brexit

    It was sarcasm. You're right they aren't that special, but well done coming to the party 7 weeks late...

    Dual citizenship because of Brexit

    You can't just pass it on anyway, at least not Irish citizenship, unless of course she is living on the island of Ireland

    Britain’s relationship with the EU post Brexit.

    It was the export of services I was really referring to as that makes up the bulk of the UK economy. Imports from Kenya might be classed as foodstuffs, but isn't it mainly coffee?

    Britain’s relationship with the EU post Brexit.

    And of course Africa is poor with a GDP across the whole continent less than that of France. The UK aren't going to be selling insurance and banking services to some bod in Nairobi and the UK certainly won't be importing fresh food and vegetables over those distances. The UK is screwed and come...

    Dual citizenship because of Brexit

    I'm pretty sure your kids can get it, but they will need their births entered on the register of foreign births first.

    Britain’s relationship with the EU post Brexit.

    Yes! Wouldn't it be great to be on the same side when a virus strikes or a recession is brewing?

    New £20 notes

    The £20 note is the most counterfeit in the UK, although that may now change with the new note coming out as one of the reasons for the redesign and change in material from a cotton based one to the polymer is to make forgeries more difficult to produce. Btw, the Royal Mint strike coins and...

    Does the UK really intend to implement it's own electronic authorization system?

    Is this your GCSE level analysis of the situation? Let's just segregate all flights, wouldn't that be easy? It sounds like your model is based on British superiority, with the belief that there will be lots of different jurisdictions bending over to accommodate the UK. The UK isn't the...

    Britain’s relationship with the EU post Brexit.

    With other third countries however there is a degree of convergence of certain standards. The UK has categorically said that they wish to diverge and so the off-the -shelf deal Johnson is hoping for (I don't believe he is after this and it is a no-deal he desires which he can blame entirely on...

    Britain’s relationship with the EU post Brexit.

    Not sure the UK was ever promised a Canada deal, rather it was after Teresa May outlined her plans for the future UK/EU relationship and was told then that what she as after was not possible, and what the UK would get would be closer to a Canada style deal and not that it would be replicated...

    Britain’s relationship with the EU post Brexit.

    Not really a stalemate, as the UK is totally going to lose out. This is just another step towards the no deal Brexit Johnson was trying to achieve at the end of January. In case anyone is still wondering if today's news is good, take a look which way Sterling went afterwards as the markets are...

    Does the UK really intend to implement it's own electronic authorization system?

    And good job that the UK is being the adult in this. I mean, the UK demands, and the UK gets. That's how it works isn't it? The UK's bargaining power has been vastly deminished on the world stage, so it will be interesting how things turn out. In the long run, the UK might actually have more...

    Does the UK really intend to implement it's own electronic authorization system?

    Oh? Where did you read that, the Daily Express? The whole settled status thing is a joke. I know several EU countries such as the Netherlands, Slovenia and Poland who, especially in connection with permanent residency treat UK nationals like any other EU citizen to allow for such an...

    Does the UK really intend to implement it's own electronic authorization system?

    This attitude stinks. It's only this, it's only that... There are also approx 1.2 millon Brits living in the EU and they have practically been abandoned by the British Government. Most countries that they have made their home are doing more for them than their own government. These selfish...

    The EU could insist on much more stringent control for travel between EU and GB

    Does the UK really intend to implement it's own electronic authorization system?

    And this is typical Brexit. No one knows what is going to happen and even now it's a guessing game

    Does the UK really intend to implement it's own electronic authorization system?

    To say very minor, but are you speaking for all Brexiteers here? I think the proof will be in the pudding. I think a lot of Brexiteers are deluding themselves as things will be very different and a lot of them might be feeling a bit like Colin.

    The Humble Centimetre

    It's the other way round, a UK pint is the larger one, therefore the US gallon is smaller. This is especially important when refueling an aeroplane and you need to be really sure how much volume you are really taking on. So it seems it is an easy mistake to make mixing up gallons/pints and...

    Britain’s relationship with the EU post Brexit.

    The Plucky Brits won't stand for it! It is after all the will of the people and who needs fresh food and medicine anyway?
