The number of Britons seeking citizenship in other EU countries has surged as a result of the Brexit vote, with some member states recording near tenfold increases on 2015 figures.
Denmark, Italy, Ireland and Sweden have all reported a spike in applications from British citizens eager to secure proper status in the EU following the 23 June vote that has set the UK on course to leave.
Across 18 European countries, at least 2,800 Britons applied for citizenship in the first eight months of 2016 – a more than 250% increase on numbers recorded in 2015. Compared with last year’s figures, numbers have surged almost tenfold in Denmark and threefold in Sweden.
Several applicants told the Guardian that it was the Brexit vote that prompted them to take action.
Those who wish to remain EU citizens can, those who do not so wish do not. This is an increase in liberty and freedom and as such is to be welcomed.
And, of course, the federasts are now self-sorting out of the UK.
