For the people who have already received their ballot papers, could you please tell me which constituency your vote is in and what date they arrived? If you don't want to write that here, please send me a pm. I'm want to feed this info back to my local PPC and the group who took up the case r.e. the European Parliament elections debarcle when mass 3rd party posting methods were used.
Lambeth (London), received Monday or Tuesday - not sure which as I was away.

Re: Anyone else voting in the UK GE?

I received mine pretty quickly sometime at end of November and posted back the same day. I voted in East Lothian where Labour will probably lose their seat to SNP, only consolation is that Tories won't win. Feel that it's important to vote considering we're disenfranchised in CH, not completely inspired by UK election but at least had somewhat of a say in a local constituency.

I saw a video of the hustings in my constituency and the behaviour of the sitting Tory MP was deplorable. Then there's the now infamous comments from Conservative candidate, Sally-Ann Hart, who definitely proved she's not all heart. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...-a9235281.html

I'm torn on whether to stay up all night for the results like I used to. I've only gone to bed twice on nights like this in the last 30yrs. First was the 2015 GE and second was the 2016 Referendum, so perhaps I'm getting superstitious in my old age

Since many will still be UK domiciled & therefore their estate is liable to inheritance tax at their death on worldwide assets, being able to vote against Corbyn should be possible as those with assets above £125k will have a bill to pay.


Not quite how it would necessarily work as the 125k is per person receiving assets.



Just for info, lifetime gift tax threshold in the US is something like 11.9 million.

Are you saying someone with 6 children could die leaving £750,000 tax free? Sounds rather unlikely.
