Yup.
That'll probably cost me €100,000. A house I can't use and I can't sell.
My brother, who is in a similar position, is in the process of applying for a “carte de sejour” (residence permit). The French bureaucracy is long-winded and frustratingly slow, but my understanding is that it effectively means he'll be free to spend as much time there as he wishes.

Akcherlee, the more I think about it...lyrically, it's very apt indeed. A fitting lament for the U.K from Carole King.

So, do this afternoon's developments mean that our Norn Irish members have just got themselves a sparky new border off their eastern shores?
