UK citizens who are readers of this forum may be interested in the first article in the link below, which announces a Private Member's debate in the Commons later this month designed to scrap the 15-year rule. It is from the ECREU Bob.

Cameron proposed this just before the referendum.

He said, in 2014, that the Tory Party manifesto would include repeal of the 15 year rule. Good old Brexit appears to have shoved it to the bottom of the heap - again. Bob.

What's the relevance of that to abolition of the 15 years rule re. voting in UK elections.

Relevant in that Brexit work and effort has put other domestic legislation on the back burner because of lack of time and effort. But when they resolve the NI/Republic of Ireland border situation, all will of course be plain sailing! Bob

As far as I can see the government position is:

    1 We are leaving the EU so we can take control of our borders.
    2 We are not going to have a border.

I doubt if the absolute top of the range Cornish clotted cream fudge from Harrods could resolve that one?

At the moment Harrods are probably as useful as the government. Why not give them a try? Everything to lose, either way. Bob.
