Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

And did it never once cross his mind, as he waved his German passport at border control on his trips to Tenerife or wherever, that it might not be a bad idea to actually become British on paper sooner or later?
Dual nationality was not permitted for German citizens up until quite recently, so this may have been the logic behind it. I've known a few people who have remained in the citizenship 'grey zone' for this reason, although I've known more who have done so out of good old-fashioned laziness.
