Well, it is clearly about paperwork for you and that is a consequence of you no longer being a European citizen which is in turn a consequence of your view that "it's just not right" to apply for French citizenship irrespective of the 25ish years you have lived here. Living in the EU does not in and of itself make you an EU citizen

My point being that you personally are in no position to complain.

I am a EU citizen and will always will be thanks

Peasant goes around collecting EU passports and citerzenships....but as far I am concerned he is American. Like Trump.

Donald Trump thinks he is Scottish...or something like that. No Mr Trump, you are American. He is about as Scottish as I am Irish. And my Grandmother was Irish.

Any chance of getting the thread back on topic while Smeggie and Peasant are trying to out-troll each other?

The UK wasn't in the EU when I moved to Australia, I wasn't really aware that I had entitlement to French citizenship because I knew my parents hadn't registered my birth with the French authorities. Of course, I knew I was British, albeit I though of myself as English, but when I took Australian citizenship, I did so in good faith and considered myself Australian (and voted etc.). I didn't do it for the paperwork mind you

We are in the bistro, there isn't really a topic, Smeg titled it 'Where am I?'

Sorry it was Clicky not Smeggie and I am intrigued about what Clicky meant, as many others might be if it weren't for our homegrown tr*lls trying to take over the thread.
Bevdeforges and berkinet like this.

It is Smeg's thread, but I think you have another thread in mind
