"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Renunciation of European Citizenship

To: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Her Prime Minister & all Her Majesty's Ministers of State
I (full name) ...............................................................
Of (full address)
...................................................................................
...................................
Post code .......................
hereby renounce European (EU) citizenship which was imposed upon me through the Treaties of Rome and Maastricht. By means of this document I free myself from the burdens of the citizenship of the above foreign power to which I have never willingly, or otherwise, sworn an oath of allegiance. From the date below I cease to be a citizen of Europe and can no longer be considered thus.
From this day (date) Day ......... Month ............................ Year ................


I (as named above) reject dual citizenship and retain the status of a British subject only and will never be considered as a citizen of any other nation or imposed European nation. I, by signing this document, swear an oath of allegiance to my Monarch whom I trust to uphold her sworn Coronation Oath to protect me from foreign subjugation. From this moment on the legislation, documentation, constitution and other impositions formed in the European Union will no longer be legally binding on me, nor shall Her Majesty's Ministers be able to renounce my sole status as a British subject, by treaty or other means, as to do so would make me stateless which under international law is illegal.

  1. Wow. As an American I didn't realize you all were dual citizens. And against your will. How awful. I think Obama wants to do something similar here. There was that talk of one world currency.(shudder)

  2. You know we aren't 'subjects' anymore - British Nationality Act 1981

    Otherwise, seems fair..

  3. Opie - it's coming our way (& with legal personality). Dual citizenship will apply only after full ratification of the Lisbon Treaty so there's still time.

    T, I didn't know that - but I did find this which applies post-1981 so 'subject'should be ok used in the context of the renunciation:

    "Although the term "British subject" now has a very restrictive statutory definition in the United Kingdom, and it would therefore be incorrect to describe a British citizen as a British subject, the concept of a "subject" is still recognised by the law, and the terms "the Queen's subjects", "Her Majesty's subjects", etc., continue to be used in British legal discourse."

  6. Amazing. Having EU Citizenship is a huge priviledge. You can live and work in 27 countries. Why would anyone want to renounce that?

    What is it with the British? They want their cake and eat it too? You want the benefits of EU Membership (no tariffs, free travel, open access to other countries) but still don't want membership?

    Your government joined in the 1970's. Membership is not only a fact but a huge priviledge - embrace it!
