  1. Past hour
  2. Wäre ein valider Grund, die Wahl anzufechten, meine ich. Wobei es im Prinzip eh egal ist: wenn UK austritt, spielt die Wahl keine Rolle (außer als Willensbekundung der Wähler) und wenn nicht, dann ist doch das Hauptziel der Expats sowieso erreicht und, ob man da nun seinen Wunschabgeordneten in's EU-Parliament gewählt hat, oder nicht, ist marginal.
  3. Today

  7. Ich denke auch, Blabbering reicht.

  9. Klar nun muessen wir abwarten wieviele solcher Vorfaelle es gibt.Wobei klar ist einer ist schon zuviel.Ich konnte waehlen, aber das war auch sehr mit viel aktivitaet verbunden. There is a complaint letter which EU citizen can fill out if they where not allowed to vote. Email text: Chief Executive The Electoral Commission 3 Bunhill Row London EC1Y 8YZ Email: complaints@electoralcommission.org.uk Dear Mr. Posner, I am an EU citizen from [country of passport] living in [local authority/council name]. I would like to raise an official complaint as: [WRITE YOUR COMPLAINT HERE – SEE NEXT PAGE FOR LIST OF SUGGESTIONS] These European Parliament Elections were potentially the last nationwide elections for us EU citizens in the UK to take part in. I consider both the actions and inaction of the Electoral Commission and Electoral Registration Officers in my case as a clear breach of Article 9 (1) of Directive 93/109/EC: “Member States shall take the necessary measures to enable a Community voter who has expressed the wish for such to be entered on the electoral roll sufficiently in advance of polling day.” I therefore request an internal review of the process applied regarding the registration of non-UK EU citizens for the European Parliament elections. I would also request a review of the information campaign run to inform EU citizens about the additional form required. In addition, I would like you to review the performance of my local Electoral Registration Officer regarding my case. Yours sincerely, [Name] [Address]
  10. Yesterday
  11. Ich war leider eine von den Schnarchnasen, mit dem 2ten Formular was hätte ausgefüllt werden müssen. Habe in der Zeit nicht in diesem Forum gelesen und als ich dann nach der Deadline wieder zurück in London war und keinen Wahlzettel vorfand war es schon zu spät. Hatte bei Hackney Council angerufen und die meinten es hatte ausgefüllt werden müssen und die Deadline ist vorbei 🙄 habe mich extrem über das System und mich selbst geärgert, da ich gerne wählen wollte. Aber das so viele einfach abgewimmelt wurden ist doch eines guten zu viel. Hatte allerdings vorhin auch auf Twitter gesehen, wo einige meinten es liegt daran, dass es erst kurzfristig zu einer Teilnahme an den EU Wahlen kam.

  19. We are planning to move back to Germany (in Inning am Ammersee) in July this year. We have had a few quotes but they are extremely costly. Hence, this ad here: We have a 2-bed room flat that we are renting part-furnished (we don't own beds apart from the toddler one; don't own sofas, no dining table/chairs). Our plan is as follows: Removal: 24th July 2019 Depart London: 25 July 2019 Please, could you advise me of someone you may have used in the past, who is reasonable and trustworthy. Thanking you in advance. Family THAPA

  23. Genau. Wird sicher lustig. Freu mich schon. 🙂 Bei Meetup hab sich bereits über 30 Leute angemeldet und noch mal genau so viel auf den verschiedenen Facebook Gruppen. https://www.facebook.com/groups/GermanClubLondon/
  24. Macht Berlin so depressive? Aber ich denke auch, das braucht es nicht, bislang ist alles in General abgedeckt.Die Frage sollte man an @stonki weiterleiten.
  25. Wir sind bald die letzten Mohikaner, die überhaupt noch posten. Brauchen wir keine Unterforen.
  26. Wäre es an der Zeit eine neue Rubrik "Politik" im Forum zu haben?
