MPs should look to history

Expats’ right to vote

25 April 2018

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.
