Brits ask Italy for citizenship

Bewail 'my country's horrible decision'

(ANSA) - London, June 24 - Italy's consulate in London received 31 requests for Italian citizenship from disgruntled British voters Friday, one day after a majority of their fellows voted in favor of Britain leaving the European Union.
    "In light of the horrible decision taken by my country to leave the European Union I would like to request Italian citizenship," read one of the 31 applications, from an individual whose mother is Italian.
    The Italian consulate in Edinburgh has received four such requests so far.
