How long do you have to have been here for to get a vote? (Serious question)
Paddington has been here since 1958 so, ignoring the bear point, surely has a vote? (Non serious response to your above comment)
Paddington was (is?) an illegal immigrant. He could (should?) have sought asylum on immediately entering the country on the basis of persecution (Destroying his habitat). But he didn't. Which means he'll be put in a detention centre for some time. Being in the EU or not, would have no impact on other Peruvian bears from illegally entering the country.
And on another note: my mum (Austrian national)... Been in the UK for 49 years and can Not vote. She never applied for UK citizenship, because she didn't need to. Until Friday 24th June.......
2. Any person with an ounce of brain would vote In (sorry outers!). We all have very short memories. Which is dangerous. Better together. peace. Freedom of movement (a GOOD thing. A two way thing!)
3. the grewt British public is dumb. We're going to vote out.
i'm one of those awful people with a home in London (everyone is voting In) and a home in the countryside (where everyone is voting out). And given that london is it's own little bubble and Middle England accounts for most of UK : it's going to be out.
i've started grieving already.
and reapplying for my Austrian passport, (dual nationality) so my freedom of movement won't be restricted! Ha!
Just did my first trail race (maverick 17k in Gloucestershire). LOVED IT! How beautiful. But bloody hell....it's a different kettle of fish! I'd say some of that terrain was like fell running....slipping sliding down some steep muddy bits. took me nearly the same amount of time to complete a 22k mixed terrain race in Austria in 26 degree heat just a month ago!
Didn't on my arse and a bsby bull luckily ran away rather than towards me. So all good.
going to now really train properly for another maverick race in October in Herefordshire. Yay!
