    As Corporal Jones would say "Dont Panic" I have just received a letter from the Uk Gov saying my pension will not be affected. I live in Portugal. Also passport just renewed and that will be ok too.

    Regarding dual citizenship Doug, my brother -in -law who was from a little village near BERLIN, had dual citizenship.
    I used to take him every year to some building in Piccadilly Manchester, to keep up his British citizenship. Strange thing was, he got a pension from the German government, for his years in the SS, he also then got a pension from the British, for his years working in the aircraft factory in Chester,(think it was BA) probably wrong!
    the point is, he got a larger pension from Germany, than he got from Britain!!! wierd eh....

    "check your documents if travelling abroad"
    But check them for what?
    Will UK passports marked 'European Union' become invalid overnight?
    Will the 'Rathaus' (you're so right thereπŸ‘) pay for the hundreds of thousands of replacements?
    My sister has already asked me if I have applied for German citizenship and my GF is wondering if dual citizenship is possible!
    Oh well! To quote Douglas Adams "DON'T PANIC!" or maybe "Goodbye, and thanks for all the fish!" πŸ˜‰ TschΓΌss, und Gute Nacht, Doug 😎
    PS Seem to remember a song called "Selling England By The Pound" from ca 40 years ago.
    On an album called "Below the Salt" I believe, can't remember the group name though πŸ€”

    I hope everything works out right for you Doug, we
    are a little late in life, to have these kind of problems,
    but here in the UK, all the motorways have signs saying check your documents if travelling abroad, as from the 31st October. The idiots in the rathaus, (perfect word in English!) are selling the UK down the river, the pound is devaluing daily, where will it end?

    cheers, Peter

    Hi Peter,
    Pension should be the least problem as they are sent worldwide, i.e not just EU.
    Also for me it is only about a quarter of my total UK + company + German pensions anyway.
    Comes from having worked here for 35 years. Others who emigrated on retirement might have a different situationπŸ€” Mouldbuilder will be finding that out when he moves to Hungary!!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    The big problem as I see Doug, is will you still get your pension from the UK?, I have friends in Spain, and that idea is worrying them.☹️

    Shame about that Peter ☹️
    I'll see what I can do about improving my "fiddling" cos the original vid quality is far better.
    Cheers, Doug 😎
    PS I don't like the idea of Brexit either😠 It's going to cause guys like me a lot of problems and time wasting visiting various German authorities. Apparently I will have to be 'Retitled' as they put it if UK crashes out! Plus new Passport and driving license needed. Both state European Union! πŸ€” Don't suppose Boris will reimburse us for those ☹️
