The people who are now working in Europe are doing so as a result of the European Idea. The fact that their ip address is offshore should not bar them from adding their voice to a petition. That they have been excluded from this list of protest, even if they are entitled to a British vote, further underlines the fascist, undemocratic, bungling and cowardly nature of the present shambolic administration - half resigned, half running for cover. This should go to the Lords. They would overturn it. I shall write to Hesseltine straight away.
