Big vote coming up on June 23rd, a vote that could define the nation for this century so it is important that as many people as possible vote, the only exception is those that have flounced off abroad and they are the ones who are now whining that they won't get a say in which way Britain falls.
British expats even had the temerity to challenge the legal ruling that anyone who had lived outside of the country for 15 years lose the right to vote in a British election, a challenge that they lost.
The appeal had been brought by Harry Shindler who has lived in Italy for 35 years and and Jacquelyn MacLennan who upped sticks to Belgium in 1987.
'I am still waiting for the Government to tell us why British citizens in Europe can't vote in this referendum' said Mr Shindler so to clear it up for him and to save the Government the bother, i will tell him.
You see Mr Shindler, you chose to leave this country, one that you now claim to have a say in deciding its future.
No you don't because i'm sorry if this country wasn't good enough for you 35 years ago but as you don't live here and don't have to deal with the consequences of the vote, you don't get a say in choosing its future.
I hope that clears up any misunderstandings.
