A heavy envelope arrived in the post last week. I finally got round to applying for my Irish passport and it duly arrived in the post . I am an Irish citizen and a dual citizen because I also hold a British passport. This also means I am an EU citizen yet again. Hurray!
I am a member of the EU again. If I want to stay in the EU for up to six months I can do so or even work or retire there. Perhaps I will fulfil my dream and live in Portugal every Winter? Oh happy days!
I have yet to meet some one in Ireland that can see the sense in Brexit. Not to forget the 30 Billion Pounds leaving bill that the UK needs to find in January. All the lies and false promises. Even the Remainer Liz Truss wants to recruit workers back to the UK again, especially seasonal horticultural/agricultural workers
I see the Liberal Democrats and the SNP say they will campaign at the next General Election to rejoin the EU yet Labour of all parties the party founded for the labourers won't be. Do they not believe in free movement between our European neighbours? We need to be island hopping with our European neighbours not content with signing deals with the US and Australia.
Anyway if you have a grandparent or parent born in Ireland or another EU country why not apply for a passport and become an EU citizen again? Ten percent of the UK's population are from an Irish background like myself.
I feel like I beat Brexit on my own. Well my dad helped a great deal with him being born here and so did Ireland especially the passport people. Thanks!
