  1. Brexit: The fallout

    Who knows what the heck is really going on? Labour MP Paul Sweeney tweeted 2 hours ago...     @PaulJSweeney It looks like this is being taken out of the Prime Minister's hands. Emanuel Macron of France has said enough is enough, he will oppose any extension of Article 50 in Council tomorrow

  4. Brexit: The fallout

    In case you weren’t confused enough already...   "In conclusion, if the UK is unable to leave the EU in a constitutionally compliant manner by 29 March 2019, as in by an Act of Parliament, then we cannot lawfully withdraw. If an extension of time is not agreed by the EU, or as and when that extension expires, the UK’s Article 50 notice will lapse as a matter of national and supranational law, if not unilaterally withdrawn. A no-deal Brexit in the absence of parliamentary approval is, therefore, not the legal default."
  5. Berlin foodies, have your say!

      I think you'll like it. Head for the larger restaurant next to Innsbrucker Platz, it really sometimes feels like it's in Istanbul, often has live music.    If you like Ramen, check out Cocolo which has restaurants in Kreuzberg (Paul-Lincke-Ufer) & Mitte. Very popular at lunchtime.   Traditional German - Max & Moritz on Oranienstrasse in Kreuzberg. Opened in 1902, original decor.   German/European bistro in Charlottenburg - Jules Verne, Schlüterstraße 61 (S Bahn Savignyplatz). Closed Mondays.

  8. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      Congratulations on reaching the finishing line. I'm sure they all issue the same warning to all applicants so that no-one can complain afterwards.
  9. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      Curious how long the entire process took from your initial application...

      Ergüns used to be great back in the day, but unfortunately their quality has really dropped off. Maybe a new owner.   Our go to Turkish fish restaurant is Atlantik, two locations in Schöneberg (Innsbrucker Platz & Potsdamer Strasse). Always dependable, friendly service too.
