NOTICE TO ALL EXPAT BRITS

Website for Voting Rights for all Expat Brits>

www.votes-for-expat-brits.com

We ask that members of the Association, and those persons visiting our site, to go to the site mentioned above as it deals with the most frightening thing to politicians - VOTING RIGHTS!

This site aims to draw attention to the scandalous denial of voting rights to British expats who have lived outside the UK for more than fifteen (15) years.

We believe that the UK should enable and encourage all its expat citizens - not just some of them - to participate fully in the national process in their home country, by giving them unrestricted voting rights in national elections, as in most other advanced democracies (and indeed in many so-called "third-world" countries). To regain our voting rights in Great Britain will give us the clout to make the British Government face the issues of pension parity.

Please visit the site - and then decide to express your support in the feedback section. You may do this from any part of the world - and especially if you are one of the 5.5 million Britons living abroad.
