Blimey! I'm British!

I got the call from the embassy and picked up my UK Passport today.

I'm officially British! (and Canadian too of course)

Now when I land at Heathrow I can use whichever passport line is shortest! Mwahahahaha.

Ironically my next trip out of Qatar, and the first one where I can use my new passport, is Britain. When I get there I'll have a pint to celebrate.

Come to think of it, I remember talking to you about this way back when you would disparage the idea od UK citizenship. (for me)
Who's laughing now, Belfast boy?

Don't recall that conversation but I'll take your word for it.

This wasn't so much a case of "I want to be British". I am British, always was, just didn't have the paperwork. Getting the passport was a case of me going to the embassy with the proper birth certificates/documentation. That's why I had the passport 10 days later with no citizenship exam etc.
