Default UK dual citizens about to be screwed by UK government.

It's the Telegraph, I'm afraid! But nevertheless it's worrying!

"The Daily Telegraph has learnt that the £1.2 billion “e-borders” system was not designed with individuals who hold two passports in mind."

Continued @ New border controls could penalise Britons with dual nationality - Telegraph

Wow - I half expected something like this from the US. But not from the Brits.

There are penalties for US citizens using their "other" passport to enter the US. With no consideration, of course, for any other country that wanted to enact similar rules. The airline registration system is just going to have to add a field for a second nationality, I guess.
Cheers,
Bev

That's what I thought
If the programs are written in a modular way then that shouldn't be too much of a problem - and I try to say that I've given up programming

Karen
