I'd research the rules in case I lead you astray but I think there is an option in it.

I just checked, 5 years in total (apparently you can't do the 1 year continuous residence and 4 years minimum residence together) and a couple of hundred euros.

And I'm sure the test can't be any harder than the UK's bullshit, which involves encyclopedic knowledge of 1970s pop culture.

That's a point...especially since Ireland and Australia both allow for dual-nationality.

Canada is the same, and it's nicer.  So long as you stay East of Manitoba.

In fact, just say "Toronto" and leave it at that.

UK economy flatlines in Q4 over Brexit, Chinese/American trade war.

I did also consider Canada, but their visa restrictions for workers are a lot tighter than Ireland would be.

Also yes, the economy has continued to flatline (has for a decade now) and Boris Johnson is continuing to make obscure "No Deal" threats.

WOOOOOOW!  :lol:

That's Trump level idiocy.

He said he wants an Australia style arrangement, the EU said that's fine but Australia doesn't do financials with the EU.
The EU aren't innocent in this either, there is a clause going into all of their trade deals that no other nation can get more favorable terms unless the EU also gets them.
The finance deregulation worries me, on the financials Boris basically threatened a global downturn and the EU seems to be ok with that.

I doubt they're okay with it at all, but they're not about to kiss his spotty arse, either.

I'm not so sure, if there has to be destabilisation, I'm getting the feeling that they think the financials would rebuild, but not in the UK.

I may be huffing the conspiracy theory crack pipe, but I get the feeling the EU want a economic crises to consolidate their position.

A lot of the big financials are moving away from the UK to either Ireland, France, Holland or Germany anyway.

Goldman Sachs etc are already gone, it's a skeleton crew at downsized offices.

Could be.  Mostly, I think it's just primate response.

Meanwhile, the UK is back to deporting black people

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/feb/11/government-windrush-tough-migration

Quote
Now we have moved on to “foreign national offenders”. Refusing to release or even pretend to pay the slightest attention to the Windrush Lessons Learned review, the government has deported 17 people to Jamaica – and in doing so it has communicated that it will continue to be “tough” on immigration. It’s necessary, it says, to deport black people from this country – regardless of whether the UK was the only home they’d ever really known or if they’d served their sentences in the criminal justice system. Once again black people are being treated as second-class citizens.

I wasn't aware that they had stopped.

Well, there was an election on, so they calmed it down a bit.

You may remember it, as half the Cabinet boasted about doing drugs - the same thing some of these people are being deported for.

There was also a judicial review meant to halt the actual flight in question yesterday, but the Home Office refused to comment on whether the flight itself was cancelled or not - suggesting it was intending to break the law.

Oh, and we asked a 101 year old man to have his parents confirm his identity.

Wow.

Also, halfway down this article, it seems that Boris is firing all the women in his government:
