Re: In or out?

Theresa May 'acting like Tudor monarch' by not giving MPs a Brexit vote Is the matter of Brexit (art.50) comparable to a declaration to invade a foreign country (in this case a retreat), when a parliament vote is required ?

Re: In or out?

the Swiss radio news this morning mentioned that many UK residents in Germany (a figure of 70% of them was mentioned) have applied for a double nationality; this is possible under EU law. As the UK does not allow their citizens to have double nationality, it may happen that at expiration of two yea...
