Perhaps it's just my nasty suspicious mind but maybe it's to do with the fact that service voters are, in general, perceived to be Conservative supporters. Hence no real will to fix the problem. Something similar was done during the devolution referenda when Scots and Welsh people domiciled outside their native land were not permitted to vote because ( my nasty suspicious mind tells me) they would probably have voted "no". It would certainly have sunk Welsh devolution and with at least 1.5m Scots living in England it could easily have scuppered Scottish devolution for a second time. The Labour party would not have got the "right" result.

F**k politicians and their bureaucrats, especially lefties.
