Sorry, I cannot find the original thread. About the 15 years only voting rights but below is the answer from my (conservative) MP, I was quite touched as there is no way that MP is ever going to lose his seat there is not even a Labour candidate in my ex circonscription.
Carswell isn't it? You might be pleasantly pleased to know that the most recent by-election poll shows support going down and the Tories going back up and a good candidate is expected to be selected for next May. Since none of the other parties care much, that is one to watch.
And pigs might fly. Although if we put enough pressure on you never know! Unfortunately the british public may have elected a government with ukip as partners before anything can be done, and then “Gawd help us”
