    Already Tory Lies Exposed! Cameron Endorses Labour Curb on Expat Voters 


    UK nationals who have been resident overseas for 15 years or more will not be eligible to vote, despite assurances from the Conservative party chairman, Grant Shapp, last year that they would be.

    ================

    • EU - referendum vote
    • —————————————-

    =============

    The Guardian report also reminds us that it was Labour, in 2000, that narrowed overseas voters’ rights, no logical argument presented then, clearly party advantage discerned, since older voters are said to be more conservative.

    Now Cameron has cast aside his party pledge, and certainly thus rigged the expat vote. Many of the younger ones, who get to vote, are on the EU payroll, or at least have a vested interest in that they are employed in EUSSR member states.

    This should make no difference, of course, on how they mark their ballot papers, but ‘should’ and ‘will’ are two separate verbs. It’s a fact that a lot of people these days, in a lot of countries, vote on the basis not of patriotism, or any principle, but on crass short-term personal advantage.

    As noted previously, this freezing of the franchise mirrors the frozen pensions – if a man lives outside the UK, his senior citizen state pension remains forever at exactly the same sum he first got when he turned 65.

    I believe some very old folk in this situation are expected to live on roughly five pounds a week!

    But that would cost money to fix!

    And Cameron has a lot of financial outgoings MUCH more important than that!

    Like the wads of cash handed out to ‘asylum’ bludgers..

    .. plus the millions wasted on lawyers playing games with illegal immigrant cases,  plus the millions soaked up by sticky-beak trouble-makers on bodies like the ‘Equality Commission…’

    ….not to mention the rip-offs perpetrated by Brussels against the UK tax-payer.

    Only a damfool would expect Cameron to care more for elderly Brits than for wastrel projects like those.

    British Jobs for British Workers – And That Should Only Be The First Step! 


     Nigel+Farage

    Logically, of course, and if the UK were still as free a country as once it was, employers, hoteliers, publicans, shop-keepers, and all Brits not employed in the state sector, should be at perfect liberty to hire, fire, rent lodgings to, pour a pint for, whomsoever they please.

    If somebody won’t employ me just because I’m over fifty, I resent it, but it’s the employer’s right, or should be, to have staff to his or her liking.

    If a practicing Presbyterian landlady doesn’t want poofters messing up her accommodation, fair enough.

    If a Jewish landlord won’t serve a skin-head with a swastika tattoo, okay too.

    And the natural disgust felt by all decent people for transvestite freaks should not be punished by imbecile equality laws

    But unfortunately Farage doesn’t go that far.

    Or does he – the report doesn’t say.

    But his words suggest that his stand on freedom is not so much as a principle but merely a matter of practicalities ‘If we’d sat here 40 years ago, having this conversation, your point [on the need for anti-discrimination laws] would probably have been valid. I don’t think it is today.’

    ==================

    It was never valid. It was always a massive expansion of state intrusion into what had always been personal liberty.

    If I run a business, it’s my business who I employ or do business with.  

    If I ‘discriminate’ against others, they are equally entitled to discriminate against me!,
