    Thanks, Bojo – Overseas Brits Get Rights Restored! 

    Not quite yet, true, but it’s been announced that the 15-year limit on expats voting in general elections is to be lifted, allowing UK citizens living abroad to continue casting their ballots for the rest of their lives.


    If Johnson sticks to that, he will get a heartfelt thanks from millions of Brits who served their country well in lands of palm and pine for years and years, only to be kicked in the teeth by Labour legislation enacted entirely for political gain.

    Patriotic subjects of HM The Queen, UK citizens, deprived of their birthright..

    Dublin’s Fifth Column Vote Could Sink Brexit

    while voting rights were not removed from citizens of an enemy country which continued its long record of hostility to the British people…


    …throughout the Brexit battle, always motivated by its indefensible objective of bringing British Ulster under its loathsome tricolour flag.

    Never forget, nor forgive, De Valera’s frolicking with Nazi envoys and his lamentation over Hitler’s death…

    This was indeed a deadly moment in our life, and if it had not been for the loyalty and friendship of Northern Ireland we should have been forced to come to close quarters with Mr. de Valera or perish forever from the earth.

    However, with a restraint and poise to which, I say, history will find few parallels, we never laid a violent hand upon them…

    ….which at times would have been quite easy and quite natural, and left the de Valera Government to frolic with the German and later with the Japanese representatives to their heart’s content. Winston Churchill


    Good that a million or more Brits will be voting next time round, but better if Bojo were to tackle the affront of Eire aliens resident in and meddling in UK affairs.

      A Very Merry Christmas, Ross!
      Thanks a million for all your loyalty to Ulster’s cause!

    If It’s Brown, Flush It! 

    I’d almost forgotten who Gordon Brown was – the PM, I think, who dishonestly called for “British Jobs for British Workers” till Brussels slapped him down.




    My recollection was confirmed, as I searched Google for the details, by one of the nutjob gargoyles…

    British jobs for British workers’ is back, a fascist incursion into mainstream politics

    …a couple of years ago.

    None other than a far left hackette who oftimes graces BBC Dateline, Rachel Shabi, whom we have discussed before…‘Humanising’ ISIS Pigs – UK ‘Drama’ Wins Guardian Praise!  …another ‘gabbling Guardianista,’ par excellence.

    But that’s another story.

    Unfortunately I was forced to conjure up his memory last night.

    He’s never complained about enemy aliens like Soros pumping money into UK politics.

    …but he’s now up in arms about imaginary ‘foreign funding’  of the Brexit Party, with not a shred of evidence.

    A Brexit Party spokesman dismissed the smear tactics, saying that “I don’t sit in front of the PayPal account all day, so I don’t know what currencies people are paying in.”

    But he could have added that if donations in the form of foreign currencies DO come in, they might be from the MILLIONS of British people who have been denied their right to vote by Brown’s own party!

    If I’m not wrong, Brown served in the Blair government that disenfranchised overseas Brits!

    Who Gets To Vote? Eire Aliens, But NOT Expat Brits! 

    So if they’re now taking revenge for being deprived of what should be their basic constitutional rights by sending a cheque…


    foreign money

    …or cash transfer or whatever, in Spanish currency, or Oz dollars –  or Indonesian rupiah! – from anywhere, why the HELL not?

      It was Brown who said that, British jobs for British workers, and it’s true he was told he was out of order because Brussels doesn’t allow any nation state to gives priority to its own citizens.
      You are also correct about him being part of the Labour Government that struck down expat Britons’ right to vote.
      And true too that he has never objected to foreign money being used to intrude on British politics.
      Flushing is fine by me.

      Why the hell not, just as you say. I was given no vote in the referendum, no vote in the past two or three general elections and will get no vote in the Eurelection this week.
      Bloody Inland Revenue still send me tax forms though.
      Of course I will help the Brexit Party any way I can.

      That’s a few points well made and Breitbart has got onto this too, with Farage raising the question of foreign funding of Remainers which we know is true and Soros is the outstanding example. He and his money should be kept out of the UK
      There’s also the millions handed by Brussels to leftwing fake charities that are in reality political pressure groups.
      They should at the very least lose charitable status and privileges.

      I think it is only fair to quote from today’s BBC report, since it’s not a remotely pro-Brexit source.

      ‘Electoral Commission spokesperson said there was no evidence of electoral offences…’
      Nigel Farage commented that
      ‘there might be collusion between the Electoral Commission and Mr Brown.
      “I’m certain of it – I’m certain the establishment are working together,” he told the BBC.
      He said the commission had declared itself “absolutely happy with our system” last week, but had changed position “in an act of bad faith, beautifully timed to coincide with Gordon Brown’s speech”.’

      We know that the Electoral Commission is full of anti-Brexit stooges. Of course it will go for the Brexit Party.

    UK Referendum – LibDem Discrimination Bid Thwarted

    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.
