Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I feel the same way about not having the right to vote on something which will have an effect on us too.
... allowed those of us who have been outside of the UK for more than 15 years the right to vote in it then I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t be in this mess now.
I think it was sufficient to still have been on a UK electoral roll less than 15 years previous to 2016 to secure a vote in the referendum. I left more than 15 years before the referendum, yet still got a vote.
Exactly, would not wish anyone harm - but the lack of concern and empathy from some people for those who are currently truly and severely affected by the realities of Brexit - is truly upsetting. To vote on such a massive issue, without having to weather any of the consequences, seems so wrong.
I agree, I can't believe so many people actually voted 'Remain'!
