Re: were not allowed to vote, even though decision affected them massively

"David Cameron promised to extend the right to vote to ex-pats beyond the 15-year limit imposed by Tony Bliar, but he never did so."

Why should he? I'm also in this position. I emigrated but I don't then want a say in how the old country operates. It you want to influence the country after 15 years away then bloody well move back. Even 15 years is too long. If you haven't lived there for 15 years you should have no say.
