No-Vote-No-Voice in the 2015 General Election

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.

    HOW COME The Cabinet Office Westminster wrote to me on AUG 2014 ” The Government is not minded to change the 15 year rule” ???? Suggest UK main political parties talk to the Lib Dems / Tories in the Cabinet , its all a joke just like Westminster Gov emmigrating to Scotland to ” save the Union ” its about POWER nothing to do with DEMOCRACY
