VOTES FOR EX PATS
We approach the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when we will remember our relatives who died that we may have liberty, and freedom of thought and speech, and yet some of our own politicians are in the process of fighting not to give us that freedom. Shame on them.
Recently there has been a campaign by ex pats to win back that democracy in the form of the right to vote for all. A leader in that campaign and an example to all is a 91 year old ex soldier – Harry Schindler. He fought in the battle of the Anzio beach-head in Northern Italy in 1944, and lives in Italy to this day. He alone, has mounted a case for Democracy before the European Court of Justice, whilst most of the rest of us have sat on our hands. Harry has the spirit of Churchill. The spirit that got us through that awful War, when our relatives waged a War - to defend our democracy in the UK and help the return of Democracy in Europe.
