INTERNATIONAL media interest is growing after the first-ever Olive Press front-page splash in Spanish.
Our story covered a petition set up by two Madrid-based British journalists demanding dual citizenship for British expats.
The petition, set up by William Chislett and Giles Tremlett, calls on the Spanish government to grant joint nationality to Britons who have lived in Spain for more than ten years.
Since last week´s Olive Press splash, the number of signatures has grown from 15,000 to 17,000 with the International Business Times and Spanish newspaper Ideal both covering the story.
“Politics, the clever strategists of Podemos say, is something you do or get done to you,” said Tremlett.
“With Brexit, it is something that has been ´done´ to many of us. This petition is a first attempt at salvaging something from the wreckage.
“Please sign, and encourage Spanish friends to do so as well.”
Anyone wishing to sign should search ‘Giles Tremlett’ on Google.
