"Since you left the United Kingdom fifteen years ago", began the email I received a few days ago.
"If the law changes, then of course"
So I can no longer vote in UK elections.
Then today came a letter from the Town Hall, marked Urgent!
What could it be?
"Since you are no longer European you can no longer vote in the local elections".
So henceforth it is officially NOT MY FAULT. I am disenfranchised. A serf. It's official.
