That was actually a semi-serious question. How does one get to spend half the year here, half the year in the UK? Family matters.

Sorry, I thought it was a wind-up. What citizenships are involved? Are you talking about legal permission to live in each country or just looking for a job?

If just a job, I guess anything where you work from home, but I don't know where to look for such a thing. Are you in a particular profession that you want to continue in?

I would suggest dual nationalities and independent financial means or a job that is not location dependent.

Excuse the parody in the original message.

I'm a dual citizen - Blighty and here. I'm a software engineer. I suppose writing could do it.

I believe Microsoft has a UK base, or at least did a few years ago. Might be worth checking, but it's hard to get hired there.

MSFT do have a large operation in the UK, most of the tech jobs being in Reading.

My brother works for MSFT, originally in the UK but they let him transfer to the US a few years ago, and apart from a few months in Hong Kong, has been here ever since. He does get to visit the UK on business a lot, and probably could do it more if wanted. Not sure if they'd go as far as 6 months in the US, 6 months in the UK though.

Asylum-seeking, benefit defrauding dirty foreigner? I'm told that's all the rage in Europe-istan nowadays.
