    UK-OK! No More Taxation Without Representation! 

    Bliar’s most iniquitous electoral scheming is due to be overturned, with news that the fundamental democratic right, to vote, is being restored to overseas Brits!

    When the repulsive hypocrite Bliar outlawed expat voting rights, no rational explanation was ever given for the arbitrary ’15 years abroad’ diktat.
    ‘The Labour government of then Prime Minister Tony Blair pushed through the voting ban, ostensibly because it deemed long-term emigrants to have severed ties with the old country.


    Bliar, with one voter eager to sever ties with the old country who was not deprived of his right to vote


    Privately, Labour politicians admit the party’s assumption that most expats vote Conservative may just have played a role.  http://www.politico.eu/article/ballots-british-parliament-brexit-referendum

    No kidding!

    Europhiliacs have argued that if the two million overseas Brits had been able to vote, they might have thwarted British deliverance from the EUSSR.

    Evidently Cameron didn’t buy that, because he reneged on his election pledge to give every Brit a vote. 




    We can’t know if or how the result would have differed.

     I think not.

    Some selfish folk on the Continent may have voted Remain for reasons of personal convenience, but my view is that thousands all around the world, who might be far from Blighty but steadfastly maintain allegiance to Queen and Country, would have revelled in the opportunity to cast a ballot for freedom.

    Out of Hundreds of UK Expats, ‘Objective’ Jakarta Post Quotes ONE! 

    Having spent weeks taking the biased media back West to task for their slanting of UK referendum news…

    BIAS! As EuroNews Gags One-Third of Scots Voters! 

     … it hardly came as a shock to read the Jakarta Post yesterday.

    But even so.

    There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of British expats here in Indonesia, but the intrepid JP hacks seemingly found only one to quote.

    And he’s not even in Jakarta!

    They had to go to Bali, where an obscure teacher who believes that only a small percentage of British voters are competent to make an informed decision as to whether to quit the European bloc the country joined in 1973.

    Well, hell, why not just scrap democracy altogether.




    Who’s competent to decide key questions, the British people, or the rotten elites determined to keep the nation in thrall to the EUSSR? 

    By chance I was out and about last night, and rounded off the evening in a pleasantly smokey corner of a bar with another Brit, a German, and three or four Indonesians.

    The talk turned to Brexit.

    As with many locals – I’ve discussed it with a lot of them recently – my companions didn’t really understand what’s at stake for Brits today.

    ‘We’re in ASEAN, it is not a problem, so why don’t you like being in the EU?’

    I have explained frequently over the past few months that, unlike the EuroCommissars, ASEAN does not interfere in Indonesia’s internal affairs or over-rule Indonesian courts.




    ‘You may or may not agree, for example, with Jokowi’s capital punishment policy, but you’d agree it’s not for a foreign court to stick its nose in and approve or disapprove laws your country makes?’

    Indeed they agreed. Indonesians delight in celebrating their Independence Day in August each year.

    My companions were astounded that Brits allowed themselves to be ordered around by un-elected bureaucrats in Brussels…

    EuroCourt’s Dangerous Dementia – For God’s Sake, Vote Leave! 

    …or, for that matter, robed rogues at the Strasbourg court.

    But back to that to that lucky teacher, in Bali, the only expat quoted by a Jakarta newspaper whose journos were obviously too lazy to look around the city whose name their paper carries.

    The teacher’s views on democratic principles appear to be over-influenced by his day job.

    “You need to educate the populace to make an informed choice on what’s going to happen.

    Actually, in a free country, free citizens can show up at meetings and ask questions. The internet gives us all access to info from all sides, and while this Bali-Brit has a point when he refers to scaremongering, which we ourselves highlighted again yesterday…

    What? Soros Says Remain? Time for Brits to LEAVE! 

    …the greatest education’ in Brussels-rule reality is living under its yoke. That’s why older Brits are so much more pro-Brexit than the young.  

    If you  were grown up in the early Seventies, you can remember when the country was free from the constant bullying and badgering. Younger folks have been subjected to poisonous propaganda in every class-room they’ve ever entered, kindergarten to college.


    British Schools, Brussels Brain-Wash, No Surprise – But Who’s Collaborating? 


    Goebbels Would Applaud! – EUSSR Uses Brit Taxes to Indoctrinate Brit Kids! 


    But the guy in Bali is entitled to his views.

    The JP, in contrast, is just pathetic, unable to find two expats willing to give the well-known pro and con arguments. If these little hacks got off their butts and went into any bar here, they’d easily have got some useful quotes.

    However, this fellow they did find could have put them onto the biggest cause of outrage among British expatriates looking to use their voting rights when he says – ‘‘Being an expat is not high on the list.”

    In fact, as many long-term Brit residents here are all too aware, Camoron broke his election pledge to restore voting rights to every Briton abroad.

    One More Camoron Double-Cross – No Right to Vote for UK Expats

    If they have lived away from The Old Country for more than 15 years, they are barred from participation…

    Dublin’s Fifth Column Vote Could Sink Brexit! 

    ….even while hundreds of thousands of foreigners with NO allegiance to UK are allowed to intrude on this historic decision.

    I will mention the British Ambassador’s comment. “There is a 30-day period of calm ahead of the referendum where all British government officials are expected to keep mum on the issue,” the British envoy said

    He’s probably quite content to be in that position. His Excellency Moazzam Malik is a very civil chap but whatever he himself might think, if he had to express an Embassy opinion, he’d be obliged to echo HMV in Downing Street….



    David Cameron ‘used Jo Cox’s death’ to campaign for Remain – Metro

    ….which could scarcely be an agreeable duty, given how Camoron has demeaned the office of Prime Minister, most recently by cynical exploitation of Jo Cox’s murder.

    Referendum – Another Poll Expats Get To Vote In! 


    For all us expats, it’s frustrating that we can’t do more.

    june 23

    So every chance you get to vote, even in media polls, take it!

    PS – please view our two previous posts, also relevant!

      *”Frustrating” that “we” can’t do more? What about repatriating?*

        Aaah,Comrade Cozijn!
        How’s your cultural marxist revolution today ?
        I’ll wait till your ‘climate panicker’ prophecies come to pass and the West has more nice sunshine like we have in Jakarta.
        And until common-sense prevails and the asylum parasite albatross is unslung from Britannia’s neck.
        Have a happy day.

    Brits! Get Your Own Back! Vote in ‘Irish Farmers’ Poll! 

    It is of course outrageous that Eire citizens resident in the UK should have any say – much less a vote- in the historic decision due in two weeks.

    They have no allegiance to Queen or country.

    Dublin’s Fifth Column Vote Could Sink Brexit! 

    Why let them participate, especially when millions of loyal Brits living overseas are disfranchised thanks to Liar Camoron? 



    One More Camoron Double-Cross – No Right to Vote for UK Expats

    So when I saw this, on one of my regular trawls for newsy stuff, I thought…


    ….OK, howzabout a bit of bite-back?!’

    Brexit poll: If the UK leaves, should Ireland leave too?

    I’ve nothing against ‘Irish Farmers’ but their little consultation exercise gives us all a chance to upset the Eire apple-cart.

    Please use the link to skew their poll !!!  


    Should the UK leave the European Union? And if it does, should Ireland leave too? Tell us what you think in our polls below:

    Should the UK leave the EU?

    UK Expats Are NOT All Europhiliac – And ‘Abroad’ Reaches Further Than Brussels. 

    …with over two months to go until the referendum date, 94 percent had already made up their minds, 67 percent were firmly in the ‘Remain’ camp, while 28 percent were planning to vote ‘Leave’.

    That’s The Local, talking about their survey of UK expats IN EUSSR countries. Nowhere else! But get the spin…no, not spin, the bare-faced lie…spewed out by the Europhiliacs.

    James McGrory, Chief Campaign Spokesman of Britain Stronger In Europe, said: “This survey shows the overwhelming consensus among Brits living abroad for remaining in Europe.




    Where the HELL are any facts, statistics, polls, to justify that blow-hard’s boast? Or does he really think that ‘abroad’ and ‘under Brussels control’ are synonymous.

    Memo to McGrory – they’re not! 

    Nobody here in Jakarta has surveyed any Brit I know. And I know quite a few, some of whom will vote against Brussels rule, others who are content to see the UK as a subject state.

    As far as I know, there are FAR more expat voters – and many born-and-bred Brits denied a vote by Camoron’s betrayal of his campaign promise to repeal the ’15-year-absence’ clause…




    …. in non-European countries than within the EUSSR.  There are thousands here in South East Asia, hundreds of thousands in Oz and NZ and Canada and the USA, and many more in Africa and Latin America.

    What does McGrory know of their views?

    To give due credit to The Local, they did offer some individual opinions, and I liked this one so much I add it now for readers to savour. 

    “Remember those three-legged races at school? You would run 50 yards until the rope practically burned your leg off, and you collapsed in a heap,” he said.

    “Well now imagine 28 countries with their legs tied together each trying to run in their own direction. The rope is frayed, as the bullies pull here and there and the young kids are getting trampled on. So is Brexit the answer? Possibly. I love Europeans – I went to school with them – That’s why I think maybe we should save them from the EU.”
