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

I really feel sorry for your friend but why did she never apply for British citizenship?
Because when she first came to UK to marry her British fiancÚ, France did not allow dual citizenship. And then came the EU and there was absolutely no need as her rights were guaranteed by the EU.

Now I went to UK before EU, and realised that not being British would cause all sorts of problems, so I got citizenship in 73- which was simple as dual citizenship was allowed by Switzerland. No application via android phone and special tech- I had to go to an officer for oaths, who looked and behave like Captain Manwaring- and swear allegiance to HRH and her descendants, holding the Bible. Quite a performance. In Stoke-on-Trent - I was considered very exotic then in the Potteries
