Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
voting rights for EU citizens is an injustice issue that needs urgent fixing. It won't be fixed, of course, while we have a bunch of eurosceptics running the show. We'll remember that next time we hear Tories burbling on about their concept of "democracy."
It is worth knowing no other EU country offers other EU citizens voting rights in its general elections - as here, locals and European elections yes, general elections, no.”Why should EU citizens in the UK be an exception in Europe?”
No.10 is opposed to the idea of extending the vote to EU nationals on similar grounds and said it would give EU citizens “wider voting rights” than UK nationals.
It seems you advocate creating an injustice.
Fact dear boy, fact!
