Introduction

  • This page started not for or against Brexit (British exit from EU), but with message:
    Regardless if For or Against Brexit, Please Register & Vote
    UK deprived 700,000 (or more) British living longer than 15 years in the EU of any vote. If you can still vote, don't let them steal your vote too: Register & Vote !
    New message:
    Brexit Referendum Margin Is Fraudulent: After `Legally' Stealing/Denying 700,000 (or more) votes from UK citizens in EU, the rump results do not represent us.

    UK stole our right to MP representation: 700,000/ 92,000 = 8 MPs. The British parliament fails to represent 700,000 UK ex pats in Europe, who also only have EU MEPs till UK exits EU.
  • On referendum day, author was on the street in the UK, urging people to vote & get their friends to vote, whichever way they wanted, "Cos I'm British & not _Allowed_ to vote!" - All were surprised & thought it unfair he couldn't vote!
  • Government gerrymandered & stole the votes of many UK citizens resident in Europe.

Britain stole the vote from 700,000 (or more) of 2,000,000 Brits in EU -
Dis-Enfranchised: 3.5
million globally : Gerrymandering ( Wiki)

You'd expect British residents abroad in EU over 15 years should be well informed on UK, EU, & Brexit, & worthy of a vote ?
UK instead steals our right to vote, dis-enfranchises us!
As excuse, UK mis-appropriated as precedent, the 15 year limit for UK local internal general election suffrage.
UK ignores that many British long term ex-pats in EU would be increasingly Better informed about EU, than many UK citizens who've just stayed home in UK, traded with EU, or holiday-ed in EU.
UK dis-enfranchises some of its most informed & affected citizens!
UK hypocrisy cheats:
  • The UK, resident in the EU longer than 15 years, asserts its right to vote on Brexit
  • Yet UK stole the same right to vote on Brexit, from UK citizens equally resident in the EU longer than 15 years.

  No Taxation Without Representation 1750 to now

  • Many British in EU are denied votes on Brexit.
  • Britain should not tax those whose votes it steals, gerrymandering.
  • Many British in EU have investments taxed at source in UK: banks, building societies, pensions, property rental, shares etc.
  • Some are adopting non British citizenship.
  • Some intended to renounce British citizenship where dual nationality is not allowed if Britain leaves EU & that threatens their EU residence.
  • The EU recently got its member countries including Germany to allow dual citizenship
  • Estonian e-citizenship is not a solution, its only an identity for Internet not a citizenship giving residence. www.wired.co.uk/article/estonia-e-resident
  • Parliament & "No Taxation Without Representation"
    • British politicians have not learnt in over 250 years: They alienated British citizens in America 1750 & lost America, Now they alienate British citizens in Europe. Many British author knows are taking German citizenship because of Brexit. We can't complain to our MPs because we don't have one - The UK Government Stole Our Votes ! (& inverse happens too: A German Lufthansa air steward living in London was on TV, 'cos he took British nationality, afraid for his UK residency because of Brexit)
    • BBC Parliament: 11th May 2016: Chris Grayling, Leader of the House Common, to Select Committee (on "EVEL: English Votes For English Laws") quoted
      "No Taxation Without Representation" ... But only to do with UK internal devolution, Scots Welsh Irish & English matters. Still insular vision only !
  • Why pay tax to a stupid cheating thief ?
    • The UK government thieves, stealing votes from UK ex pats.
    • The UK government cheated, gerrymandered, denied many most affected citizens a vote.
    • The UK government is stupid:
      • Denied its most informed citizens a vote.
      • Abuses British ex pat citizens. - Scaring them to suddenly rush for dual citizenships.
      • Scares foreign residents in UK to apply for British passports.
  • What to do when UK is treasonous to citizens ?
    • UK may have to learn again, as per USA war of independence from Britain:
      No Taxation Without Representation"
    • Individual solutions:
    • UDI ? Split UK ? ( SNP wants to. - London Too ?)
      • "A split is Impossible ! ? No! In England's civil war there was a similar a patchwork of 2 sides as there is now, & PM May maximises fear of a maximally Hard Brexit, & fear & dissent grow.
      • Encourage London to declare independence ?
      • (UDI aka ex Rhodesia ?) from England.
      • London & city etc will be badly affected by Brexit,
      • London a stronghold of Remainers (in EU).
      • London has more money for ad campaigns, lawyers etc. Money talks.
      • London has more population than Nordic members of EU.
      • London has maritime access.
      • London bigger than state of Singapore. Venice was also once a wealthy powerful city state, various other city states etc.
      • A first petition raised 100,000 signatures in late 2016 ? (I recall hearing, Need to check, Search web refs)
      • independent.co.uk 24 June 2016 "It's time for London to leave the UK and stay in the EU"
      • UK Ex Pats could adopt dual citizenship of London State, abandon middle England to its isolationist Brexit fate, & optionally drop UK citizenship later.
      • Currency: Pound Sterling initially presumably, then Euro later ? Several countries not part of UK use Pound Sterling, just as some non USA use dollar, & some non EU use Euro.
      • Monarchy: As before, no point rocking the boat, & QE2 is monarch of 16 realms, of which UK is just 1.
      • Other issues: Search what others have discussed.
    • A Celtic Union ? Northern Ireland from Scottish stock. Maybe a broad band through Scotland & Ireland ?
    • Create a mini or micro state
      • wealthy with lots of ex pat income,
      • join/ remain in the EU.
      • It would retain our EU citizenship.
      • It would levy some tax, & deprive UK of a lot of ex pat tax inc. investment tax.
      • If some citizens bought a small piece of land somewhere in EU, on understanding with vendor country they will declare independence after purchase, create a new mini state & ask EU to accept them, on same set of agreements as UK, or same as state patch of land purchased from, or whatever EU cares to stipulate, to allow ultra rapid integration.
      • It might incredibly please the EU to rub UK's nose in it, as EU don't want UK to leave, & would be a stick for EU to beat UK with, would also keep many of the UK ex pat professionals & wealthy professionals already in EU.
      • UK citizens would have right of abode in all EU countries inc. UK, till the day UK leaves. After, dual citizens of mini state & UK state would still retain right of abode in UK, that would only dissappear for those who renounced UK citizenship.
        Note it is possible to have triple etc citizenships, eg that of UK, where you live, & some 3rd country eg new mini state.
      • ex UK citizens could in future pay investment etc taxes that used to go to UK, to new micro state member of EU ?
      • Mini state would pay EU whatever,
      • UK would loose a Lot of tax,
      • We'd pay less tax than before to UK: no UK national debt!
      • Yes, whoever set it up would be paid well to do it, serious work.
      • No, author is not looking to do it, he's a computer consultant not an entrepreneur.
      • Maybe start with a venture capital like structure, maybe a kickstarter.com or similar ?
      • Currency: Euro
      • Maybe schemes are afoot already ? Search
  • Daft Ideas ? No, just thinking outside the box ! They will only remain unlikely, unless/ until promoted.
    • It was daft to try to fly, till they succeeded.
    • Bitcoin would have sounded far fetched till it happened !
    • The ideas don't even need new technology, & there's historical precedent for all elements.
  • Political solutions within UK
    • Contact MPs:
      • The changing sentiment in the country, the narrow original percentage vote difference has narrowed, flipped or nearing yet ?
      • Ex pat votes were gerrymandered/ stolen.
      • The enormity & longevity of issues, compared with trivial repetitive 5 year General Elections.
      • Remind MPs of the old adage: "It's the economy, Stupid! Where will UK be as the Pound continues to dive faster after Brexit ? MPs need to think longer term for UK, than fickle pendulum voters in ballot booths.
    • London & Scotland & sensible MPs could & should
      • Force non party whipped, free individual conscience non party votes in Commons & Lords (Brexit issues are Not conventional left/right UK party politics, it's an abuse of the whip using it to bolster May's Hard Brexit).
      • Force government to give ex pats votes.
      • Force a referendum on negotiated terms, after terms are negotiated & published.

July 2016 & Beyond

  • The post referendum political chaos { inc. Conservative & Labour resignations, challenge from Scotland, legal moves to ensure a prime can't just implement Brexit without parliament (Mischcon), half baked ignorant statements ignoring individual civil rights embedded in treaties beyond mere EU, etc} Creates time & space through to the Autumn & beyond, to think deeper, & better consider all aspects of a possible Brexit, rather than stupidly take the narrow referendum margin as knee jerk authorisation to leave.
  • It was infuriating to listen to radio in UK for days after referendum, to repeatedly hear lots in ignorance say
  • "We've all had a chance to vote, now we must implement it" IT'S A LIE ! We did not _All_ have a chance to vote !!
  • BRITAIN STOLE OUR VOTES : Author is a British citizen, was physically in UK (Kent) on the day & not eligible to register or vote
  • It would be irresponsible to push Brexit through without serious House Of Commons & Lords multi readings & debate.
  • Some in UK who voted Leave EU really just intended a kick or warning to the EU Brussels bureaucracy, some probably didn't expect a majority with immediate consequences. Even many who voted Remain In EU also consider the Brussels bureaucracy overpaid, bloated, forcing ever more regulations on us too fast, annoying almost all members with their wide interference. Bloat worsened by speaking every language in the EU, with costs of interpreters & translators, delays & mis-understanding. Even wasting a 1/4 of their time each month in Strasbourg. Many citizens of the EU outside the UK also think we need a looser Europe with flexibility, moving slower together, not forced fast by overpaid EU bureaucrats driving their own agenda of grand visions.
  • independent.co.uk : "TO THE PRIME MINISTER AND ALL MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT 9 July 2016 " by PHILIP KOLVIN QC And 1053 others
  • Author expects UK economy & house prices will soften & drop in autumn 2016, when politicians return from holiday & the disaster progressively starts to unravel.
    • Business likes stability & a predictable future market. Brexit will produce a lot of market disruption & more scares as it unfolds. Building new alternative trade agreements & finding customers outside EU will take years.
    • Whether investing in new production lines, or lubricating foreign palms to place "invisible export" contracts in UK, etc, It takes time to recoup investments. More reason for a bust than a boom.
    • Bankers in London fear for jobs. France & Germany will make bids yet again to shoulder out the London finance market.
    • Would an EU citizen buy a house in London today ? With some idiot UK politicians saying existing EU people in UK might have to go home ? Half a million French in London author recalls ? Maybe same again for Poles ? Whatever the numbers are, won't be good for London & SE property market
    • A bad time to `invest' in UK property. (Except perhaps not a bad time for buyers with Euros or dollars as pound is worth a lot less ).
    • Some in UK will start trying to drive harder bargains courtesy of Brexit fears.
    • Britain in 20 years might or not do better outside EU, but short term next year or 2, UK will do worse, The disaster of Brexit will take time to unfold. (When West Germany damaged its economy acquiring East Germany, it was a 20+ year long financial disaster (though benefited NATO)).

    Dear Mr Ian Blackford
    • As you will open the debate, I'd be grateful if you &/or colleagues could please reference in relation to referendum numerics:
    • 700,000+ UK citizens resident in EU over 15 years were denied a vote !
    • Massive gerrymandering: nearly all would most probably have voted to remain in EU, based on sample at 2nd open meeting of British in Munich Germany 9th May, attended by the British consul.
    • Britain also stole our right to have constituency MPs to refer to.
    • Many of us are still intensely British & visit often, have investments & property in UK etc; eg author was in his UK high street on the day, encouraging people to vote, telling them Britain had stolen my right to vote.
    • Britain & Eire are the only 2 countries in European Union who steal the right to vote from citizens outside the country (USA also doesn't steal); That has so far only been challenged to UK's national supreme court, not to an International Court

Meeting: 2nd Munich Meeting: 18:00 9 May 2016

Invitation To 2nd Meeting:

Open meeting with the British Consul General

Host Arranger: Robert Harrison

MUC Brits and Brexit - Q&A with Paul Heardmann - UK Consul

Hosted by Robert Harrison facebook page Monday, May 9 at 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM in UTC+02

Hacker-Pschorr Bräuhaus München Theresienhöhe 7, 80337 Munich, Germany

Details

After our meeting in March, a number of people had questions about the referendum and the effect on UK citizens living in Munich and surrounding areas. Paul Heardmann, who is the UK Consul General in Munich, has kindly agreed to a Q and A session on 9 May at 18:00 in the Pschorr Brauhaus, Theresienhöhe.

He can talk about the British government's position and about voting rights for expatriates in general. Please bear in mind that his role in Germany and Bavaria is to present the government's view and to work for a solution that is good for the UK and its citizens in Germany, whatever the outcome of the referendum. I'm sure that he will convey any concerns that back to London, but until the outcome of the referendum, he will not be able to speculate about any outcomes.

We had a good turnout for the last meeting and I've booked a slightly larger room. The event is free of charge - the restaurant will charge for food and drink.

To give us some idea of numbers, please let us know whether you would like to come.

Rob's Facebook page has a discussion button, but no public access ... Facebook monopoly.

Notes From 2nd Meeting 2016-05-09

A few friends couldn't make it & asked author for a report, rather than repeat by phone & over a beer etc, notes below.
Corrections Welcome

Notes Of Meeting

  • author counted & recalls maybe 30 or so, maybe more were still arriving then. author thinks Rob counted more later ?
  • Vast majority by a show of hands (called by an audience member on Faraday table) could Not vote, been here too long, just a few could vote, about 4 or 5 maybe). Considerable resentment that we couldn't vote.
  • Most by far were edging toward retirement or retired, only very few were near young ... (There are lot of young British in Munich, not there though).
    Several lawyers in audience, Various EPO, Faraday, Berklix etc
  • Lots of concern to spread the word both in Munich & back home. Postcard size green flyers handed out promoting gov . uk / register - to - vote
  • Nearly all seemed in favour of UK remaining in EU.
  • Consul was introduced. He's been in Munich 4 years.
  • Consul spoke:
    • Promoting staying in EU, following the government line.
    • Asked if he should play it neutrally with a civil servant's straight bat, he did not feel the need, & was happy to promote the government line: Stay in EU.
    • Soon-ish [date?] Consul will be bound by Purdah & must then remain neutral.
    • He gave a timetable of events (all verbal, nothing written, stuff like when his purdah starts). He said we have about a week to safely apply to vote.
    • He made no mention there's a great mass of British throughout EU seriously annoyed we're dis-enfranchised by 15 year rule;
    • No mention of law case to try to get us votes, until we asked about case, at which point 3 or more audience members informed us.
    • He knew by prior show of hands, how few of us could vote, as dis-enfranchised by his employer the UK government, but did Nothing to inform us to help overturning the wholesale disenfranchising of us, British citizens in Munich & Bavaria, (even though if we were enfranchised, the vast majority was inclined to vote per his government instructors).
    • Various members of audience seemed to think he wasn't casting much light on various topics he could have. A subset of those things were generally realised to be unforeseeable, & as he pointed out he's not on an expert on German Nationality procedure of course. Perhaps he'd be more forthcoming on trade, than our voting franchise & personal rights interests, but before the Chamber Of Commerce meeting he'll be into Purdah so can't speak there.
  • A lot of concern about pensions, right to residence & work, & variety of other topics.
  • Some abstract discussion about some Vienna convention on citizens retaining right in event of ...
  • Some here (R.) are applying for German citizenship. Can't have dual German & other citizenship (said various people, but this author believes that is too simplistic, there are minor exceptions, can't remember, author recalls Jews & 2 other categories ? A German national (C.) told author after, if eg mother German & ... but most have to choose at 18 - however that's a matter of German law, not British law, French, Polish law etc.). Can have eg British & French dual.
  • There's a law case going through the courts, re us not being able to vote. Someone from Faraday/EPO long table by window handed author earlier papers. author showed to D. D told us all: result was/ would be today (same day as our meeting) Little chance of appeal succeeding.
  • One can renounce British citizenship irrevocably if one wants, but German constitution gives more protection (D. said).
  • EU treaty says 2 years if a country wants to leave. When starting ? Not specified. D. thought it would take far longer, & after 5 years UK might start to negotiate to re-enter EU.
  • Rob intended to send email list to Julian to install on berklix mail lists Julian intended to set Rob as list owner. Rob did not send list.
  • Some inc. P. want to meet on election night as the results come in, preferably with a live news feed. (It was probably assumed TV would be nice, but a bar/ restaurant beer garden with an accessible WLAN for eg an Android tablet + a "Film on Live TV App" might choke on limited bandwidth - might be better to settle for an Android FM Radio App, or even just a high quality conventional radio, any of which this author could bring).
    That & other follow up Can be discussed on mail list.
