I would be delighted if my concerns finally found a voice.
I would love to have voted in this referendum. Unfortunately, though I have heard that every vote counts, mine clearly does not.
What a pity. Neither David Cameron nor Alex Salmond is interested. I have petitioned both in my desire to exercise a fundamental democratic right.
I am a proud Scot who, after graduating from the University of Edinburgh, went on to live and work in Europe.
For many years I voted by proxy but unfortunately my right to vote was removed during the years of Tony Blair’s government.
I have no vote here in Germany nor do I have a vote in any UK election. Nor do my three adult daughters: UK citizens born here in Germany.
I am a taxpaying professional who follows politics both in the UK and here in Europe. The fact that I am disenfranchised ails me. I look on at the historic decisions being made and yet I have had no part.
Yes, I am Scottish and at the same time feel European but I have no vote and no-one cares.
Perhaps in the brave, new world of an independent Scotland I will get a new passport and have my vote and human rights restored.
At least I can hope.
