Hi, both my parents are Irish born in Ireland therefore I am classed as an Irish citizen even though I was born in England. They both hold an Irish passport though I hold a British one. I am considering applying for my Irish passport to maintain EU membership. Do you think I am eligible and will I be able to apply for an Irish passport for my children? Plus my husband whos parents are both English, will he be able to apply for an Irish passport as we're married?

What I'd really like to know, is what Martin thinks is going to happen to EU citizens who, like me, live, work and own property in the UK.
What will happen to our right to work and own property here? What about our children's university fees?

I also need to know about EU universities and there doesn't seem to be much information out there. Daughter is due to study in EU where there are no fees. What happens now? Even the Uni don't seem to know...

With uncertainty in the markets (including housing) should I reduce my mortgage overpayments, if I am considering selling in the next ~5 years?
Currently I overpay by a significant amount (around double the minimum monthly payment) which seems like a relatively 'safe' investment opportunity, but now I'm wondering if another housing crash could mean I end up losing money that would have been safer in a savings account. It know it's difficult to predict ('crystal ball gazing' as Martin would say) but assuming a similar picture to the house price crash in 2007, any thoughts on the relative risk would be greatly appreciated!

WOW. What a way to show appreciation for the tax and NI those people pay, and how they contribute to the wealth of our economy. It is very sad to see the lows our country has now sunk to.

Migrant workers have made a huge contribution to our economy. Very few people are opposed to immigration as we do need these people here to do certain jobs. What most people are averse to is uncontrolled immigration. Furthermore it is worth noting that whilst migrant workers pay tax and NI this is to an extent negated by the huge sums which they send back home, money which would from an economic standpoint be better spent here keeping our economy going.
That said, everyone should be treated with respect and the vilification of migrant workers is abhorrent.
