Background

We should abide by the democratic principle that there must be no taxation without representation.

Five million people were wrongly disenfranchised and could not vote in the 2016 referendum. Voices for Europe and In Limbo sponsor this petition on behalf of EU citizens in the UK and Brits abroad.

Additional Details

3.7 million EU citizens live in the UK, having made this country their home. They work and have families here; 2 million of them pay tax (https://fullfact.org/immigration/eu-migration-and-uk/). Their contribution to British society is considerable. 1.3 million Brits made their home in the EU (of 5 million Brits who live abroad) https://www.statslife.org.uk/social-sciences/1910-how-many-british-immigrants-are-there-in-other-people-s-countries) and couldn't vote if they had done so for 15 years.
