So Why Was Nigel At The German Embassy?

Recommended Posts

It will be some legal issue regarding his wife I imagine. Hell, I don't like the Inland Revenue but i still send them my tax money each year, we are all forced to interact with people and institutions that we despise. Not everything is a conspiracy.

Asking for political asylum, of course. He doesn't want to live in post-Brexit UK.

I think he has a substantial EU pension, paid in Euros, so he's probably in pretty good shape at the moment.

I read somewhere on Guido that he's getting dual-nationality passports for his children.

If their mother is German they are entitled to dual nationality anyway. They can have a UK or German passport or both.

Not sure what the fuss is about - bar another excuse from sore loser remainers to criticise him.

If true, what did you expect? That the elites follow the same rules as us little people?

Never knew only the elites children were entitled to dual nationality when their parents were of dual nationality ...i thought anyone in that situation had that right

Well, you can see why there might be some cynicism.

Since when has he been anti-European? He's anti-EU, a completely different thing.

His vision of britain's relationship with the rest of europe may well deny freedom of movement to everyone in this country who doesn't have dual nationality

But his kids will be okay

I find it hypocritical

If you don't, I presume you are cool with Diane Abbott sending her son to a private school?

How is it hypocritical ?! That's ridiculous !!

Freedom of movement for someone of dual nationality has ZERO to do with the EU and everything to do with the two countries in question.

And if one of those countries means you are classed as a member of the EU and can move between the member states then so be it.

That's exactly the comparison that occurred to me as well.

However, exactly what he was doing there is a matter of speculation, and I (reluctantly) suppose he does have a right to privacy.

Exactly. I voted Leave and my wife is French. My eldest child used to hold a French passport. If I could be bothered spending all day at the French embassy (probably more than one day) we would happily get all the children French passports since they are (or at least were) cheaper. Sadly French bureaucracy is such that they can't do things via the internet or even good old fashioned post. No, instead you have to queue in person and navigate the most cumbersome and pointless bureaucracy imaginable to get a passport. They won't even post them out to you afterwards but make you come back in person to collect them at huge expense and inconvenience. They're sh1t basically.

Farage certainly wasn't applying for German citizenship as you can't get German citizenship purely for being married to a German, you have to actually live in Germany to be eligible to apply.

I could get an Irish passport if I wanted. My mother has one since the were free for pensioners at one tine (may still be).

The option is open to anyone married to or descended from a foreigner. There's no hypocrisy involved. It has nothing to do with the referendum.
