The debt collecting agencies get your details via the voters register...written 18th Apr 2005
John Broek replies: This is an real issue. I know of a several people who want to vote, but because of the fear of debt collection agencies getting hold of their details from the electoral role they stay off this list. Surely a british passport is enough to prove your right to vote?written 18th Apr 2005
john replies: A quick response to John Broek's response:
The point about our electoral process is that in order to vote, you have to be registered in a specific constituency and that's it.
Thinking about this a bit, quite a few of the participants in the "Rhodri and Mike Show" in the "hole in Cardiff Bay" were actually "elected" by virtue of being a number on a list against which a percentage of the "popular vote" was applied. There was no relationship between them and the Westminster Parliamentary Constituencies.
If only they did something like that for the British General Election, then some of the slimy b*gg**s would have to come and canvass MY opinion (and those of the millions of voters in seats other than the top 20 marginals).
However, it'll take at least a civil war to get such a change on the books.written 18th Apr 2005
