But, in the recent Budget Statement (towards the end of the printed edition) the Government has pledged to remove the 15 year qualification rule for voting so you WILL be able to vote again.....

But just don't hold your breath that it will actually be delivered..... such things tend to end up in the long grass yet again....

Of course, at present we are totally unrepresented; no voting in any UK Elections, no voting in France for MEP, or any local elections, so we pay taxes but have absolutely no Representative, anywhere, that we can write to in order to raise concerns.

MP's are not allowed to respond to communications from people outside their own Constituency. Many do, some do not. But no Official response.

Hence we are totally unrepresented.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I think that's a bit off Dave, if you are paying anything into the UK coffers just stop it and I think they will contact you.

We are taxed on lot's of things by the UK Kev. Pensions, property rentals etc.

They won't stop, it's the law.

The basis of it is that we earn and/or are paid the money in the UK, which I do actually think is fair enough, as long as we aren't also taxed on that money where we live. But if they want to tax us as Brits then we ought to be able enjoy the same benefits as Brits living in the UK do.

Can't argue with you on that Alan

I just did my census, I considered that a lot of the questions were none of their business so didn't answer them.

Try to do that.....

it's impossible as my teachers pension is paid by the British Government (via a company) and they are not permitted to pay me without deducting standard rate tax. Apparently to do so would require a change in Primary Law, fortunately, we are not then taxed AGAIN on the same money by the French Government due to a long-standing agreement that we have been assured WILL continue unless.....

PAYE has advantages and disadvantages- this is one time when it is a disadvantage.

Likewise, taxed at source on the pensions and can't not declare the other earnings, even if I wanted to. They are all paid into my UK bank by DD monthly. No legit business or tenant would agree to do otherwise.

We are all being conned, although we don’t don’t mind paying our fair share, those that dictate to us are ahead of the game and do all they can to avoid paying a few quid to maintain services for the plebs, so they salt away their cash off shore and avoid as much as possible whilst laughing at us eejits paying up.
