Re: “How many Brexit polls does it take to change a country?”, Have Your Say, yesterday.

Don’t hold your breath, Mr Shepherd: it is highly unlikely we will see any change to the rule barring UK citizens from voting if they have lived abroad for more than 15 years. However those living in Thailand who want to join or donate to the Liberal Democrats can do so by visiting the website at http://www.libdems.org.uk/abroad. Those from Northern Ireland can contact the Alliance Party at https://www.allianceparty.org/

Brexit may happen, John, when you are reincarnated. Who knows?
