Cameron denies vote to schoolkids shock

Euphiles protested today that Prime Minister Cameron has no plans to extend voting to 14 year-olds for the forthcoming Euro referendum. They also protested against the exclusion of certified lunatics and Eurotrash aristocrats. "Cameron is excluding those most likely to vote 'Yes' to the Federasts" A spokesman said. "Indoctrinated schoolkids and madpersons are an important support bloc for us". 

Voting eligibility will be based on standard general election criteria - and will include more than 1m Commonwealth citizens resident in the UK while excluding over 1m EU citizens living and working here. (Hatfield Girl has a useful post on dual citizenships - which are rightly discouraged across Europe)

Time then to court the votes of all our Commonwealth cousins - whose home nations will have a far greater chance of trade and commerce with a UK outside of the EU.

Yes but I'm guessing most Commonwealth residents are students/younger people (talking under 30 years old!) who like the more open Europe to enable greater exploration.

In 'my day' 90% of Commonwealth residents in the UK were AUS/NZ/SA living in Earl's Court and working in bars and restaurants but I guess things have changed.

I guess the EU-phile Cameron realised that granting the vote to EU citizens would simply ensure that millions more British voters would vote OUT.

Your heading says it all. LOL.

There must be a good reason for the vote to be called 'democratic' - my guess would be that it also means the inclusion of 16-18 year olds.

That, or that Cameron is so confident of an 'in' vote he couldn't care less who can/can't vote.

The word 'stitch-up' looms ever closer.
