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.
