Good luck to you Sir, and more power to your elbow. Perhaps you could also highlight the fact that those of us excluded from voting by the 15 year rule, AND who receive what is classified as a 'government occupational pension', still have to pay UK Income Tax on that pension even though we have no vote with which to help decide how our tax £s are spent. This is blatantly "Taxation without Representation", and is thus just plain wrong.
Congratulations on your initiative in highlighting this arbitrary and irrational injustice. We have lived in France for nearly 16 years and are thus not eligible to vote even though we pay taxes to the UK government and own a property in the UK. We feel penalised for choosing to work and live in France, even though it is our right as EU citizens. Good luck ! Duncan and Lynn Birtles
