MPs should look to history
Expats’ right to vote
The MPs opposing expats’ right to vote after living abroad for more than 15 years seem, broadly, to argue on:
• Inconvenience and cost.
• Loss of interest in the UK and failure to bring one’s family abroad on relocating.
How can one put a price/cost on democratic rights?
No wonder people lose interest in the UK and politics when MPs have such an appalling mindset! Taxation without representation has had a major historical impact on the UK. It is as wrong now as it was then.
