If its as accurate as the "current bun" usually is he will still be waiting when he gets to 200 years old

Bojo probably sent it first class mail and a second letter saying he'd changed his mind by second class knowing full well with the lack of funding since privatisation he'll be pushing up the daisies before it arrives

Two different government departments with two different political and social strategies. Conflate one with the other at your peril.

FWIW, I have voted in the UK after a collective 25 years in Thailand and over 40 years as an international gypsy.

Was that in the U.K. Tam or by postal vote? If any other UK forum members do postal voting any chance of dropping a note on how to do.

Just google it.Google knows all :lol:
choi, if you look it says contact your "local" registration office. I live in Udon Thani, where is my local office located. I am sure I have read that expats can register with the UK Embassy for this but not sure if available in Thailand.

That form requires you to be registered to vote (ie living in UK.) If you are living in Thailand

Note "To register as an overseas voter, UK residents overseas must have previously been registered in a UK constituency within the last fifteen years."
