President of the European Council,
His Excellency Mr Donald Tusk

Dear President Tusk,
Reference UK PM May’s letter of 29 March 2017 Paragraph 3, Line 1

"I am writing to give effect to the democratic decision of the people of the United Kingdom. I hereby notify the European Council in accordance with Article 50(2) ..."

The UK's decision was Not democratic. The Brexit referendum was heavily gerrymandered.

3.7 million British abroad were dis-franchised, including 700,000+ British resident over 15 years in the EU.

If millions of British citizens had not been dis-franchised, the referendum result might have been Remain, not Leave the EU.

Commonwealth & S. Irish citizens resident in the UK were also eligible to vote as usual.

Britain's democratic deficit includes:

Gone is the cross party free votes of the advisory (not mandatory) referendum; since the Brexit margin of 1.27 million, (polls since ahve swung from Leave to Remain.) A kleptocracy of power obsessed leaders cow MPs with whip enforcers.

The UK Supreme Court accepted dis-franchising millions was legal, letting the UK government retain internationally sub-standard "democracy", Not compliant to civilised European standards.
Among all EU member states, only UK & Eire deny citizens votes abroad, (Germany may in circumstances after 25 years, Greece was taken to court & stopped), see report:

Millions of dis-franchised British, abused by the UK, hope for help from the EU.

Re British citizens in EU, please inform the UK government : :

British citizens in the EU request the EU offer us direct EU citizenship, not just indirect via an EU host country where currently resident

Yours Sincerely
