Perhaps the most famous/successful "Gastarbeiter" is David McAllister, the Minister President of Niedersachsen. His father is Scottish (Scaley att) and his mother German.

Anyone born in the country and has a German passport is officially a German Citizen and not a "gastarbeiter". David McAllister was born in Germany and has a German mother so that makes him a German with a Scottish father. This off course is the official version but some Germans still like to call them "Insel Affen" and/or "Kliffen pisser", the same as they call the rest of us as a joke or even as an insult. Laughing

Anybody with a name like McAllister in German would go down well. When I was there in 64/65 there was a shortage of eligble young men and the local girls were vey keen to strike up a relationship with us providing we were formally introduced. After the war thousands of German boys were sent abroad. So there was a shortage. I was too young.
