How Does An Ex Pat Vote?

Recommended Posts

Just reading the thread about Brighton and the upcoming scum conference there.

As an ex pat, I would like to do my bit to vote the labour scum out of office, come the general election.

How do I do it though? Im not on any UK electoral roll as I live in another European country.

In my experience most ex-pats vote for some barking, right-wing fringe party whilst foaming at the mouth.

Well, it seems I have to vote in the constituency where I was registered before I left Britain. Assuming that the BNP are fielding a candidate in this constituency, they'll get my vote. If not, I guess Ill just vote Conservative.

No barking, right-wing fringe party, Im afraid and, last time I checked, no F'ing a the M either.

Isn't the question really, "why do ex-pats have a vote?", it's feck all to do with them, they should be worrying about the country they live in.

Quite.

No representation without taxation as the Americans didn't say.

But they are still British Citizens and may still even be paying tax here.

A good point, well made.

However, just because one is an ex pat, one may have interests, business interests for example, in Britain and might like to exercise their right to vote in order to have a say in who makes the policy that might have an effect on those aforesaid business interests.

Fact is though that they do and Ill be using mine against the labour scum asap.

Much as I dislike New Labour, my advice to ex-pats simply has to be the same as Brian Clough's advice to Kevin Keegan when he criticised Jim Callaghan from his exile in Spain:

"If you don't f**king live here then you've got no f**king right to comment, so f**k off and mind your own business."

Amen Cloughie.

Just goes to show that you have as little an understanding of the issues as "Cloughie".

Then Brian Clough is a f***in moron. Of course you have a right to comment. You are still British even though you may not live here. As a British citizen you are still liable to a charge of treason if you were to aid the enemies of Her Majesties government and are still liable some British Law if you commit crime abroad. You may also be liable to pay tax here on income earned. Therefore, you have a right to comment. To say otherwise is to say that anyone who finds it necassary to seek work abroad (because the Labour government has F***ED up the economy) is no longer worthy of comment is bordering on treason in its self!

This is rather like a rich person setting out to prove that they can live on next to nowt knowing that if it all goes t1ts-up they can go back to their millions. Put your balls where your mouth is and renounce British Citizenship and then you'll have the moral authority to comment.

The crime of treason was taken off the statute books by Blair, so you're OK on that score.
