My father was English, but have no allegiance to the country. However if one of my parents or grandparents had been born in an EU country I would have applied for that country’s passport post Brexit.

Think the fact that people can identify as what they want is a huge part of what’s wrong with the world if I’m honest  

Super niche and unsustainable opinion. But one of the reasons I love this forum

Interesting comment - I would be interested to establish why you feel a British passport is not enough.

Freedom of movement within the EU without the need to apply for a visa and no restrictions on length of stay in those countries would be pretty good reasons.

Thanks for that. I guess for very frequent travellers multiple visa applications and being restricted to a 3 month (I think) stay in one country could prove to be onerous. Is it correct that you could actually apply for 4 visas in 4 different countries ans spend 4 x 3 months in each country under the new rules?

Think this one probably better suited to one in the general chat forum but the short answer is no - you are looking at a stay within the area as a whole so even though you can  visit multiple countries the 90/180 time limits still apply overall.
There are some exceptions e.g Cyprus Bulgaria Croatia and Romania which have their own 90 day limits.
