The article linked to below is not yet a general manifesto pledge by all the main political parties to abolish the controversial 15-year-rule that prevents British expats from voting in UK general elections.
This is why it remains extremely important that as many British citizens abroad as possible, register to vote in the 2015 General Election to demonstrate to all the political parties the true power of the expatriate vote.
Critically, the current 20,000 to 30,000 expatriates registered out of an estimated 2 to 3 million still able to vote, needs to be boosted in 2015 to be at least equivalent to an average constituency size or more (70,000 – 100,000), which ever political party gains power in 2015.
To add power to our continuing campaign to remove the 15-year-limit, we would appreciate you also adding your support here in our on-line poll.
No vote really means no voice on the many issues concerning British expatriates e.g. EU referendum, taxation, health & pension entitlements, other benefits etc., as well as future developments in the United Kingdom with which they have continuing links.
