Harry Shindler Voting Rights Letter to the Prime Minister

Writing below on 4th September, 2014 to Prime Minister David Cameron, under the letterhead of the Italy Star Association 1943 – 1945  as its long time representative in Italy, our charismatic Harry Shindler has proposed that the British government goes even further and takes steps now to end the 15-year-rule and allow all British expatriates resident within Europe to vote in the 2015 general election.

To achieve this, however,  the Prime Minister needs the support of the other main political parties. As one of their higher-profile, long-term and faithful supporters, shouldn’t the Labour party also respond favourably and  “lend Mr Shindler an ear” as suggested by The Economist in its 15th February, 2014 article?

To add weight to his claim of a potential mass vote of British expatriates in support of the UK remaining a member of the European Union in the event of a referendum, there still remains the critical need to drive up the relatively small number of 20,000 – 30,000 British citizens living abroad  currently registered as overseas voters (1%), out of an estimated 2 million to 3 million not yet excluded by the 15-year-rule.

As a potential British overseas voter you can now more conveniently register on-line to vote. Why don’t you just click here to register in the few minutes of your time it should take ?

It would also be appreciated if you could show your support for removing the 15-year-rule by adding your vote here in our on-line poll.

    be interesting to see what DC and others response will be to Harry S. For sure Westminster Establishment will dream up yet more reasons why it will not budge its called power nothing to do with democracy . Maybe a call for independence from Westminster Establishment by its citizens would be in order = Exiled Brits
