You need 4 years of residency and continuous 12 months to apply. Seen as we were looking to see out the UK winters over there, its not worthwhile until we settle full-time when we retire. Oh we are

Had it not been for Brexit, I probably wouldn't have bothered, given that I've spent close to 2000 on the process, but actually I'm pretty happy to be officially British now. I finally get to vote for parliament, and I don't run the risk of getting chucked out of the country for being a foreigner by some future government.

Will you pass their points based immigration test when you are retired? You might not be welcome!

Not sure you can buy your way into Australia, their system is very tough!
You might have to settle for Spain instead.... Although maybe we're about to close that door too!
Either way, good luck finding somewhere nicer to retire too. I don't blame you for wanting to leave and it's only likely to get worse after brexit

Well, that's Theresa May's deal in the bin then with one of the most comprehensive government defeats and a new record for conservative rebellion!

Vote of no confidence has been tabled for tomorrow, after that defeat, looks like we'll be heading for another general election. It seems there is little option than to extend article 50 now!

And what a **** Johnson is, go back to negotiate! Yeah, sure, it's taken two and a half years to get this far, we can get a new deal in 73 days

The hard line Leavers have been outmaneuvered in Parliament. Doesn't mean we're safe yet, of course, but moving in the right direction. I think the worst we will get now is a Norway type agreement, best outcome is outright remain.

Pound is up on the result! The markets clearly see this as a positive result for a softer brexit.

Juncker will not offer anything more. Politicians will now have to finally admit what they knew.... that Brexit is a hoax and a disaster for the country. Worst case scenario is delayed brexit and another vote. Best case is we remain and hard liners lose their careers

Fresh start required. No current politician is eligible.
