    Default Poll finds that 60% of Britons want to keep their EU citizenship

    "Six out of 10 Britons want to keep their European Union citizenship after Brexit – including the rights to live, work, study and travel in the EU – and many would be prepared to pay large sums to do so, according to research led by the London School of Economics.

    Support for retaining the rights is particularly strong among 18- to 24-year-olds, 85% of whom want to retain their EU citizenship in addition to their British citizenship. Around 80% of people living in London also want to maintain the same rights.

    The findings come as pressure on Theresa May mounts from UK business groups, led by the CBI and Remain politicians in both houses of parliament, as well as cultural figures from across Europe, to pull back from her plans for a “hard Brexit” in favour of a deal that maintains the strongest possible trade and other links with the EU after the UK leaves in 2019."

    EU should offer this option as paid monthly subscription - £100 per month, £50 for kids, ten times over those who voted for Brexit. Sorteed.

    I call utter bollox on this. Most British people don't give a flying feck about EU citizenship.

    Maybe they did the survey from a random sample of people wearing designer suits and working in the City of London.

    In my defence, I went to a comp in the 80's, and if you weren't a raving lefty, the teachers either ignored you or tortured you.

    That's cos you were a cretin or were disruptive.

    Teachers paid attention to kids they thought would get into uni.

    Cos I don't like it.
    FTFY. With a little effort, you could find the methodology of survey and attack it on an informed basis, but that would be rather against the grain for you. Much easier just to give out a brainfart
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    This is very true. Most teachers were amazed at my top grades.
