Can anyone out there enlighten me, please? The thought that’s going round in my head, and to which I have no answer, is this:
If, and I know it’s a very big ‘if’, there should be a referendum on Britain’s relationship with the EU, who will be allowed to vote?
Citizens from other EU member states who live in Britain are allowed to vote in EU and local elections, but not our General Elections. Will they also be allowed to vote in any in/out/shakeitallabout referendum?
If so, this would not only skew the results but be completely at odds with current policy for a Scottish Independence referendum for Scots only which precludes the Welsh, English and Northern Irish having a voice.
I know I’m getting ahead of myself here, but it’s best to be prepared. Any thoughts?
