Here is a question for knowledgeable folks here.  My wife (French) has been here with me for a very Lonnggggg time. Unfortunately she only has the marriage certificate and local council tax, local council voting papers, UK driving license. As she needs to return to France to look after her mum on a regular basis recently, she can't apply now for dual nationality (does not fulfill the req to be out of the country for less than X days in the last 12 months).

What happens if the UK votes Leave ? Do we need to apply for residency permission ?

I am on a training course in France on 22-24June. I asked for posting voting and received a confirmation email and ballot paper but not the postal vote statement yet ???

This is the interview I watched. Dorries called Cameron a "liar" on air. I really can't see how he can let this go, it's open treachery. And, as she said it  outside Parliament couldn't  he  sue her?  Of course, much easier to make jibes about jezza's dress sense than deal with revolt  in your own party.
And nothing I've read suggests Turkey is joining the EU any time soon.

Taking all that on board, Andy's playing much better on clay  than when they last met.

After the Rome final, Andy said he felt expectation pressure of winning as Djokovic had a long, late tiring SF match the previous night. Based on that remark, I guess that Andy feels a strong expectation for him (number 2 ranked) to win against a lower ranked opponent.

What I mean is if Andy lost to someone like Stepenak or Isner he would really feel like he was letting everyone and himself down and he probably realizes that people and the press would reflect rather negative on it. However losing to an in form Gasquet isn't as bad, it will get some negative reaction of course but not to same sort of degree. So Andy won't feel the same weight upon his shoulders from the burden of expectation.

At least Andy isn't a huge favourite going into the match so there won't be so much pressure of expectation on him. Hopefully Andy will be a little less agitated on court and be ready in battle mode instead.

He may not be a massive favourite with the bookies. But I suspect in Andy's own mind he is the huge favourite.

Of course I don't agree with it Al....which is one of 2 reasons I never signed it. I loath discrimination and injustice  in all forms and it sickens and saddens me to see how black people are still discriminated against in America in this day and age! I get a lot of petitions sent by, though I only sign the ones I believe in and that includes some on behalf of immigrants. One I signed recently, was to try and stop the deportation of an illegal immigrant whose whole family are here...all working legally and paying their taxes. This lady was 96 years old. Another I signed was on behalf of a muslim man whose brother had been unjustly imprisoned.  I usually pass those I sign onto Aileen, so I'm sure she will verify this if you ask her...

Good stuff Caz, thanks for clarifying! Smile I haven't seen the Change petitions you mention - I should take a look -  sounds like some are very worthwhile.
