Here’s one of the conclusions in this EU Law Analysis by Steve Peers: What happens to British expatriates if the UK leaves the EU?
“Usually, patriots and nationalists are concerned about the plight of their fellow citizens living abroad. One might think this would be particularly the case in the UK, given the large number of British citizens living abroad due to the current forces of globalisation – never mind the country’s colonialist past. Yet it seems more likely that British expatriates in the EU will be, in effect, the eggs that have to be broken to make the omelettes of those British politicians who feel uncomfortable living next to Romanians.”
If you are one of the over 1 million expatriate British citizens currently resident in the European Union, , shouldn’t you at least make sure that you can vote by registering for the May 2015 general election on www.gov.uk/register-to-vote?
If you find (like many of us) that you are already excluded by the 15-year-limit, we’d much appreciate you adding your support here in our on-line poll for removing this undemocratic limit on our national voting rights.
