what loophole is that? One which states "if, after having renounced citizenship, said person does not become a citizen of the a third country within 6 months, he or she shall be deemed to have remained a (british) citizen".
here's the rub;
Taiwan law makes it physically impossible to become a citizen after having renounced your original citizenship, within 6 months. The fastest you can do it is 1 year. Ergo, after 6 months, you can regain (british) citizenship. I'd be willing to bet other countries also have this law.
C'mon all you would-be duals, exploit the xenophobia inherent in the system to work in your favour!Conclusion: get a decent immigration lawyer, and find out if your own country has such a "6 months claw-back" law.
