The father of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has applied for French citizenship. The move by Prime Minister Johnson’s father following the finalization of the Brexit deal is in protest of the UK’s decision. Let me tell you that on Wednesday the British Parliament approved the Brexit trade deal with the European Union. It is followed by PM Boris Johnson and Queen Elizabeth II.
Prime Minister Johnson’s father said: “I will always be European
Boris Johnson’s father, Stanley Johnson, said Thursday that he was in the process of regaining his French identity. He said it was not a question of becoming a French citizen. If I understand, I’m French. My mother was born in France. His mother was entirely French, and his grandfather was also French. The question for me so far has been to get back to what I am. Stanley Johnson said I will always be European. That’s exactly it. You can’t call me British.
PM Johnson’s father is a member of the European Parliament
Boris Johnson’s father is 80 years old and a former member of the European Parliament. In the 2001 British referendum, he supported Britain’s stay with the European Union. British citizens will lose the right to live and work in 27 countries under the European Union after Britain severed economic ties with the European Union at 11pm on Thursday. However those who have dual citizenship will get this right.
What a break
Brexit means UK + exit. Brexit means Britain’s exit from the European Union. A year ago, Britain announced its withdrawal from the European Union. In 2016, a referendum was held in the UK to leave the European Union. In which a large number of locals supported Brexit. This led to the resignation of the then David Cameron government. During the tenure of former Prime Minister Theresa May, there was a lot of discussion about the Brexit trade agreement, but no agreement was reached. Then, under Boris Johnson, an agreement was finally reached with the European Union.
How the European Union came to be
All the countries participating in the war that ended World War II had to bear the loss. Five years after the end of the war, France and Germany signed an agreement stating that the two countries would no longer wage war against each other. Under the plan, six countries signed an agreement in 1950. Seven years later a treaty was made in Rome. The European Economic Community (EEC) was then established. This European economic community is known today as the European Union. In early 1973, three new countries joined it. One of these countries is Britain. The European Union currently has 27 members and a total population of about 500 million.
