Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva holds dual Thai and British nationality, the opposition has told the parliament as it continues to pressure Mr Abhisit to come clean about his roots.

Mr Abhisit was born in Newcastle in 1964 and became a British citizen by virtue of being born there.

He is also Thai as he was born to Thai parents, the Puea Thai Party told parliament yesterday.

The British Home Office’s UK Border Agency states on its website that anyone born in Britain before Jan 1, 1983, is “almost certainly a British citizen”.
