repeal the right to vote in UK elections for non UK citizens

Comment 8th July 2010

Curretly, commenwealth citizens can vote in UK elections, despite not being british citizens.

Here in Singapore,many citizens actually voted in the last UK election, whilst I am unable to vote in the upcoming Singapore election.

I pay tax,live here and get no vote.

Yet commenwealth citizens can be in the same position in the UK ,and vote.

A vote should be for citizens of that country,and not visitors,permanant residents or foreign students-all of whom can currently vote in a UK election if resident here.

Why does this matter?

This is a democratic deficit.

A person can enter the UK and live there a short time and vote ,thus permanantly changing the fabric of UK society.

If they wish to stay,they can become citizens and then vote.
