Dear Mr Juncker,
BREXIT – VIRTUAL DUAL EU CITIZENSHIP
Dividing the alleged £350 million pounds per week between the 16 million Britons who voted to Remain, is £22 per week each. I would gladly pay this to the European Union for the privilege of full Citizenship and to be a member of the vital European project. Many UK citizens have dual nationality, so I could also retain my UK Passport.
My citizenship would include trade access for my business, borderless travel and all the advantages of belonging to the single market. In turn the 16 million UK-Virtual-Citizens would pledge open-market terms to all EU Citizens. Movement of labour might be done on a person-by-person job and home swap register – though such details will need the best EC brains to rapidly resolve. The South-East of England has 427 people per square kilometre; densely populated areas might require exceptional terms.
VIRTUAL-DUAL-EU-CITIZENSHIP might be applied to all willing participants in all European States. It will be a highly prestigious club that all thinking people will want to join. It could be readily and quickly organised on computers. In due course, the EC might negotiate a Double-Taxation-Agreement with the UK, to grant tax relief on our £22 per week contributions.
Non-EU-citizens, for example among the UK’s alleged 52%, would be subject to the rules they wish to adopt.
