It stands to reason that voting rights aren't just handed out to anyone.
After all, along with various other protests, a women died by throwing herself in front of a racehorse, before women got the vote.
I might suggest that immigrants wishing to vote on UK matters, submit bank statements with the intention of determining whether or not they are bringing money into the UK, or simply living and working here just to send it all back home.
I can't see how someone filling their boots at our expense does us any good. Though it seems that the infrastructure has become so dependant upon this arrangement, we really have no choice anymore.
Being picky about who has a vote is about as far as we can go.
Money to the UK = vote
Money out of UK = No vote.
Incidentally. My household is one of the few around which brings money into the UK from outside.
