I have been away for the week. I voted by proxy. When I landed back here this morning it occurred to me I was an unwelcome alien in my own country. I am a European citizen living in the UK. Just like lots of people from Poland and other European states are.
I’m not sure a referendum can take that European citizenship away from me, it’s mine. I certainly don’t want to lose it and I am wondering what choices I have to remain one.
Perhaps I can apply to be a European citizen? Could I have dual nationality, be European and be British but have two passports? Or must I select another EU nation to affiliate with, perhaps Belgium to be neutral, Polish to make a point or Scottish for convenience.
It would be interesting if 10s of millions of us did something like this. The most likely route being some form of dual nationality.
How do I apply for some form of European citizenship? It is what I choose and I am going to have it thank you.
You cannot take away from me who I am. It is not that I won’t let you, or that it isn’t fair, you actually, simply cannot. I am a European.
