Not sure if this has been discussed on this thread, but is anyone else in the process of asking for another European nationality or thinking about it?
Friends in Spain are in the process of applying. As for the 15yr rule, it looks as if that could all be about to change...

The government has published details of plans to scrap the 15-year limit on expats' right to vote in UK general elections.


Constitution Minister Chris Skidmore said the "votes for life" would allow British citizens who have moved abroad to participate in British democracy.


It follows a long campaign waged by World War Two veteran Harry Shindler.
Mr Shindler, 95, told the BBC: "It seems the government are moving [on this] and that's good."


The government said the policy would need to work for five million overseas British citizens and should be in place in time for the next general election, due in 2020.
