One of the reasons British citizens cannot move around Europe on an ID card, is becuse the UK does not issue such an item.....

Paul has not claimed that you can travel to Bermuda on an EU ID card. He has not claimed that Britain issues ID cards, either.

Because EEA rules guard the EXTERNAL frontier - So anyone coming into the EEA must have a FULL INTERNATIONAL PASSPORT and a VISA
the UK will be like china,upper volta,and iraq outside the EEA
EVERYONE has a government issued ID cards over 14 years of age
if you want a passport to vist FREEUK
it will cost
italy €116
poland €106
germany €60
france €89
cyprus €70
and can take weeks to get one and if there is say 4 in the family the cost
of €200 will have to be added for a germany

They are all in Europe ....... those not EU appear to be principalities ..... you're moving goal posts again. So, basically you think you would get into any country except the UK with just an ID card? Dream on!

How did you and your German wife manage to get entry into Bermuda on an EU. ID card, and presumably no multiple entry/re-entry transit visa ...... you must know people in VERY high places or are you an illegal immigrant? :roll:

What is it you find so difficult to understand about .......

You need a passport to visit virtually any country when leaving the Eu unless it happens to be another country in the EEA and visa-versa.

Nationals of all the countries you list can use ID cards to enter the UK

A visa is not the same thing as a passport!

If you need a visa to visit a country generally you also need a passport.

Passport for Bermuda Visit

All foreign nationals must carry valid passport for entry into Bermuda. This is irrespective of cruise or air travel. However US citizens on closed loop cruises (i.e. direct round trip cruises) can enter Bermuda at port of call without full Passport book if they carry valid US Passport Cards. But Passport Cards are not accepted in air travel.

PLEASE READ WHAT IS WRITTEN - IF the UK LEAVES THE EEA then all those citizens will NEED A FULL PASSPORT TO VISIT THE UK ,not just the ID CARD THEY HAVE NOW

No one in the UK has ever recognized my Cyprus ID. They look at it as though it's something I forged at home. They are ignorant of EU matters. Best they stay out of the EU for a while and educate the hoi polloi a little more before they rejoin civilised societies.

On top of that euros were never legal tender in the UK so it never really felt like being in the EU whenever there.

Yeah, I reckon they should move on as they never really fitted in anyway.
