//Scince the first period of Thatcher Govt in UK there have been offially 2
tears of lBritish Citizenship - Those actually born within GB and Chan. Isles
and - The Rest.
  This was part of a measure to curb the assumed "threat" of  uncontrolled

  But thes ARE allowed to pay taxes etc. which go still in part to London!

Bye for now!
