11 March - Fallen on hard times? No vote for you then

My 97 year old aunt has become a non-person because her birth certificate cannot be found - she was born in 1920 in Rangoon - and cannot establish residency because she has been away from home for three months. She is therefore unable to provide the three items of ID required for a Blue Badge and the Carers’ Allowance.

Philip Read would deprive her of her vote too.
