Anders Hansen, a LibDem blogger, agrees with Migration Watch that Commonwealth citizens should lose voting rights in this country. I would go a step further and remove voting rights from Irish citizens resident in the UK in General Elections. It's an historical anomoly which should now be cleared up. Don't anyone accuse me of being anti Irish, but if we can't vote in Ireland, can someone explain to me why we should allow the Irish to vote here?
UPDATE: Many apologies. Apparently I've got this slightly wrong. Readers in the Comments have pointed out that UK citizens can also vote in Irish general elections. Even so, I my point still stands. I do not believe that citizens of a foreign country should be able to influence the election of our government - nor should we be able to influence theirs.
