Expats urged to register with last UK constituency or face losing right to vote

ENGLISH expats are being urged to register with their last UK constituency or face the prospect of being unable to vote in a future EU referendum.

Prime Minister David Cameron added that if the Conservative Party is re-elected in the next General Election, the party will abolish the current ’15-year rule’, after which expats lose their right to vote.

  1. Shows how close UKIP and the Tories are on the subject of leaving the E.U. This move is obviously designed to keep expats out of the referendum vote, the people most likely to vote in favour of staying in. They may have no interest in U.K. politics and never bother to vote in U.K. elections, but this is one area -E.U. referendum- where expats should hold on to their right to vote with great tenacity.
