Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. as that is what it says I am on the Electoral Roll registration form I received today

    I don't even think UK is a Nationality is it?
     
  2. Must be, as it's a nation, or group of.
     
  3. It's to do with electoral legislation. You have to be a British citizen (or Commonwealth or Irish citizen living in the UK) in order to vote in UK parliamentary elections. Being English or Scottish etc is irrelevant for that purpose.
     
  4. Surely if your "English or Scottish etc" you are eligible?
     
  5. BRITISH! It is fecking British...
     
  6. You are a British citizen (of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland). You might also hold another nationality if you naturalised as British.

    British by birth, English by the grace of god.
     
  8. As we are already stuck with EU passports it won't be long before we are referred to as European Unionists Or more likely Unionists European as the EU is only the EU here and the Community European everywher else
     

  9. He can be very cruel I know...

    Who cares? Civil Servants can call me Patagonian. They can call me Ethel Merman if it'll make them happy. I know what I am.
     
  11. A Central American Fish-man??
     

  12. As a lot of Patagonians are of Welsh ancestry it's definitely better than being a European. I'm afraid I'm too old to change from being British so all the politicians in the world can do their worst. I'm British.
     
  13. Great British, Old Bean. One must at least try to instill a sense of pride into one's posts. 'British' just doesnt quite cut it..
