This is the best reason I have come up with so far for me getting a Swedish passport (having been here eleven years and learnt the language I more than fulfill the requirements). The other being voting rights, but seeing as I haven’t voted in any election since 1998(*) I’m not really that bothered. Still, I don’t “feel” like a Swede so it seems somehow wrong to claim to be one. I don’t know.
(*) before anyone has a go at me, it was a local election before I moved to Sweden. In 2001 I looked into registering to vote from abroad, realised that the paperwork was too irritating and it just didn’t get done in time. Since then I’ve never really bothered as I feel more and more divorced from the UK. In four years I lose my right to vote anyway, which seems to be a somewhat little known fact in the UK. 15 years outside the country and you have to move back before you can vote again.
