Good friend of mine is a fiercely patriotic Scot but let it slip one evening that he was born in the nearest hospital to his mum's home which was just across the border in Berwick On Tweed - gets very very upset when we call him an Englishman.

That would be an interesting way to determine nationality. If someone from Kent goes on a day trip to Calais on the ferry and goes into labour whilst there and gives birth in a French hospital, is their child then French?

Yes, why do you think all the eastern Europeans and Asians try their hardest to have children here, because that makes the child British (if they want) and allows the parents to stay in the UK to bring up the British child and get UC and child benefit. So your friend from Kent has the option of the child having British, French or duel citizenship.

EDIT: they changed it a few years ago under Cameron's renegotiation so that the parent has to have settled status, doubt that would hold up in the European court though. If the child stays in the UK for 10 years it gains UK citizenship regardless of the parents' nationality.

That was a cracking interview with Rod Harrington.

PL possibly changing. Forward planning all the time. The P does stand for Professional!

I liked the point he made re players complaining. he challenges them because their complaint is just about them and not the bigger picture. But then sometimes, he realises they have a point. And it is considered.

A major moving to Europe? Surely they will not move from Blackpool wintergardens. So which major will move?

Probably the one that makes the least money, it would make sense.

Well yes, but since no major is held outside of Europe currently....

Can only assume Rodders was talking about continental Europe. Plus i dont believe the PDC consider Ireland and its players to be part of "Europe" anyway when it comes to event qualification.

Winter Gardens is here to stay for the forseeable future.

The Grand Prix in Dublin is, in all fairness a disappointment in terms of the attendance and the PDC are always looking to improve their tournaments.

Used to attend the Masters when in Edinburgh and the WSOD Finals when in Glasgow, but both venues were never near full, and both have been moved out of Scotland.

John McEnroe was born in Germany. But he's clearly a Yank.

Something about dogs being born in stables. :D :D

I could also see the Grand Slam moving from Wolverhampton. Both the Civic Hall (or whatever it’s called) and the temporary leisure park venue have pretty small capacity. They could also easily fill one of the big arenas in Holland or Germany.

May also make sense as if the BDO entrants remain they are becoming more and more European as the top British players defect to the PDC.
