I thought that it would be Remain (and while the vote is Leave, that may yet end up being what happened), but just in case I had exchanged £16500 into Euros yesterday, as I would need to make a big payment in December, to reduce the risk.

Looks like I was wise to do so...

When I started thinking of applying for Italian citizenship about 8 years ago, one of my reasons was the possibility that the UK would leave the EU. Everybody laughed.

It looks like I was right (unless Scotland manages to stay), but I never thought it would happen so soon, or I would have gone about applying for citizenship a lot more urgently.
