Emigrants should be allowed to vote

I AGREE whole-heartedly with the recommendation of Martina Devlin that emigrants should be allowed to vote.
Ms Devlin notes that some opponents of the emigrant vote insist on the slogan, 'No representation without taxation', which she attributes to the American Revolution.
The American Revolution's slogan was actually 'No taxation without representation' -- and was a rallying cry for democracy.
