So - what dual nationality would you choose?

#1
Watching tv pictures of "British Passport Holders" being evacuated from Lebanon, quite a few of them seem much more Lebanese than British.

This dual nationality lark seems pretty useful. Given your druthers, what second nationality would you choose?

I'd opt to be a Cypriot. Wherever trouble kicks off, most evacuees seem to end up there!

Saudi - great way of getting a row to myself on the plane.

Narr you have to look at the real perks - tax's, extradition treaties, vadility of your other passports ie can you actually get visa's, plus cyprus is EU (at least the greek half) so local laws may not apply.

I recommend EAK near Dubai, more subtle, less bling, great looking passport, and close enough to see the light show when Operation Persian Freedom(TM) happens. 8)

Norwegian or Swedish. I am obsessed with Scandilands and I want to be one. I was supporting Sweden in the world cup and had a Sweden shirt, at least when people asked me about it, I'd be able to tell them I was half Swedish.

Blond moment eh? Think of the tax's matey!
I know, I've been to Scandiland, and I know Scandis. But regardless, they still have great quality of life and they are amazing countries!

Israeli. Then I could invade my neighbours garden and kick seven shades of shite out of their yapping dog and crapping cat (and I might even be tempted to take out the goldfish as collateral damage).

1.) Canada

Silly isnt it, all these Lebanese get UK passports, but then go home to Lebanon, at the first sight of danger they are applealing to the UK to come and rescue them. Did any one see who had the greatest proportion of foreign nationals in Lebanon? Australia and Canada.... there are over 300 000 Lebanese in Sydney Australia alone, and i bet you both Canada and Australia will be asking serious questions about allowing people to come and take nationality, but not to then leave and return to their original countries and then only call for help when they are in trouble.

Smack on GUFU. I agree that Australia will probably look closely at the problem, but Canada has recent history of being a bit softy-liberal in such matters.

I have never really understood the dual-nationality arrangement. Surely your nationality applies to where you want to live, pay taxes and fight for in time of war? How can you have that kind of loyalty to two countries?
