If I could get enough va-va-voom to climb the mountain of bureaucracy, I could apply for French nationality. My five years in the FFL in 1981-86 still count and I am fluent in the language. I'm also entitled to Polish nationality through parentage, but the current xenophobic, nationalist government really put me off that option. That added to other facts put us off buying a holiday home in Poland. But I seriously believe that once the shambles that is Brexit occurs, Scotland will vote for independence and I will end up a dual national by default.
