I don't really need UK citizenship as I'm unlikely to ever return to UK to live. Swiss citizenship is mostly for the ease when it comes to running my businesses, otherwise you are normally viewed with suspicion so it makes it easier to convince someone to invest in my businesses or by my products and services.
Then i guess relinquishing the UK citizenship for the Swiss one would be a better option. You're really a lucky dude!

Beer and the Oktoberfest
Football - I love our national team

I never know what number of cashier I'm meant to go to in Boots before they read it out in English.
I always miss the information on signposts because it's welsh alternative makes it crowded.
I'm pretty sure there is no-one left in Wales that speaks Welsh exclusively, so they should really stop trying to revive a dying language.
I'm half Scottish half English, but was raised in England soooo...
