I don't have a British 'home', mate. I have built a new life here in Cyprus. It is also unlikely that an independent Scotland will be allowed to succeed to the EU because Spain had made it abundantly clear that it will veto any such application.


that why i wote ´home´ not house .
i didnt want to get into a debate about if scotland ´stays´´ in the EU or not .
The EU rules of EU members ie ROC on None-Eu members to become EUcitizens and have a right to settle in any of the EU/EEA 35 countries are very tough
and would apply the same to someone from china,the congo,or england
and include a min amount of income per year and a health insurance which in spain is €500 per month plus for someone over 65 and €700 for those over 75
The ROC will be to bzy dealing with the flood of pre-1974 greeks (and maybe turks) who want their children and grandchilden to remain EU citizens
and also be able to keep their british passport. they do not have to prove they live or have even been to the ROC ,but as the germans say get a passport by ´Recht des Blutes´
this will give them collage or UNI places in the EU for same rate as locals ,not the full rate the english will have to pay .

You do appreciate that the information on that site is hypothetical, I take it, because Scotland hasn’t become independent yet? However, I do qualify under:
“Citizens of any country who have spent at least ten years living in Scotland at any time and have an ongoing connection with Scotland”
so that is a ray of hope. If I decide to return to the UK, I am pretty sure to head for Scotland, as well.

Here speaks the idiot who thinks the British NHS will stay pay his health bills in Cyprus after a British exit from the union. Well, it looks like you may get the chance to see if that's so (and yes, I know that free health care for British retirees in Cyprus bankrolled by the NHS hasn't ended in the past 24 hours. That's because the UK is still an EU member state and nothing has changed yet, moron).

That's an interesting prediction. I have heard of British people with Irish ancestry contemplating applying for Irish passports so as to maintain the very real and tangible benefits that being an EU citizen brings (even if many British people are too blind or brainwashed to yet appreciate what those are/were), so it makes sense that British-born members of the large Cypriot community in the UK will do the same. I hope issuing passports is a profitable business because the bankrupt Cyprus state needs all the money it can get!

yes we have two people working here who will get irish passports for them and their children . you cant work in CH without a EEA passport

pre-1974 CY will have children and grandchildren now ,all can get a EU passport without having to have even been there ...and still keep their english one .

SPAIN was a good example of this . in the 1930s and when the nazis won in spain ,a lot of people went to south america ,and they always kept their spanish passports
and when their children were born they got a passport in the embassy .so in the early 2000s the country had millions of south americans working on the buildings ,,,

Just speaking on the basis of one or two people I have spoken to in person, it seems most British people living in Cyprus have no idea that huge changes will be in store if/when the UK ceases to be an EU member. They are in a fools paradise and think everything is guaranteed to stay the same. At least a few people are capable of seeing that we have to start planning. As to the others, most of them will probably need Rupert Murdoch to tell them to think that, and as Rupert Murdoch doesn't actually give a damn about them and has become a very wealthy man on the back of his ability to tell the masses how to vote, that is not likely to happen. So, they will only understand once it has hit them.
