Found on NNDB:

"In 2006, though, Gilliam legally renounced his American citizenship, complaining that he does not object to having his estate taxed by England when he dies, since England is where he made his fame and fortune, but he does not want his wife and children's inheritance taxed by America "to build bombs, that's awful". Referring to the occupation of Iraq, Gilliam said he was "seriously considering suing George Bush, Cheney and the gang for making an illegal and unauthorized remake of Brazil."

He's always been the second favorite of mine, if not at a tie with Graham. Yeah TERRY!!!! At least one of the boys spoke out about occupation in Iraq! Now all we need is all of them to hold a conference and announce the formation of a country...

I believe he's had joint US/UK citizenship for years, so he'd still remain British citizen.
