I am not a betting man, but I would put money on Mr Fleming having a different opinion about the “ex-pats” right to vote, if he thought the majority had left of centre inclinations.
How he can say that we should not have the vote as we are not au fait with the current political situation in the UK, with written press, 24hr TV and internet at our disposal, is, quite frankly, rubbish.
When, may I ask him, was the last time he had a member of any of the local parties knocking on his front door to explain their policies to him and answer his particular questions?
If his answer is, as I presume, never, would this also mean that we should not have the right to vote in the soon to be held local elections?
