Events and feste / Re: Queen tribute band

Not a big Queen fan (or even little), but anyone wanting an idea of this tribute band, there is a youtube here. Okay takes a while to do anything and I couldn?t stand to listen to it all. But at least you can hear them a little (eventually) ?.

Unfortunately I would believe anything is possible from people in receipt of a UK pension (or otherwise for that matter) judging from some of the decisions made of late and things I?ve read and heard. Tell someone their pension may not be uprated and 2-3 down the line it?s ?you might not get your pension after the ?B?.

Thanks for that Levi. I'm sure that you (or others on this forum) will be posting this link on other 'social media' platforms.


Did y'all (if you're a UK pensioner) get a text from the DWP telling you that you'll still be getting a UK pension WHEN the UK leaves on 31 Oct?


First off, I didn't like the 'when'. Second off, could this possibly be news to anybody living outside the UK?

This is good advice - so where are the instructions for appointing a proxy? (Not useful to me, as it stands at the moment, since I've been non UK resident for too long!)

Yes they are excellent. I was very surprised when I saw them a number of years ago in Palombaro. I wasn't expecting them to be so good considering Queen are hard to copy especially with an Italian accent!

Shortly after the concert I saw them in the singer had a very bad car accident and was in a coma for a long time. Great to see him back to full fitness.

I?ve just received this info from British in Italy, so if you want to vote and are eligible to do so, it?s worth considering a proxy vote.

Here?s the info

As you may have seen from recent media coverage, there is a strong possibility that the UK Parliament will call a snap election. I am writing to you as a registered overseas elector to advise you of the tight legislative and operational timetable which we must work to in such circumstances. From the Prime Minister?s declaration to hold an Election, Returning Officers must deliver an election within 25 working days.

The nomination period takes up the first six days and only after this period has elapsed can we instruct Printers to prepare Ballot Paper proofs, final artwork and proceed to print. Typically, this process takes between 5 and 7 days which results in the Returning Officer not receiving ballot papers for distribution until 14 days prior to the election.

Given the ?snap? nature of a possible future election, the time available for distribution and return of a Ballot Paper is limited.

Legislation does not permit the electronic distribution of Ballot Papers and therefore ALL Ballot Papers which must be sent to addresses outside the UK are sent via Air Mail and include an international pre-paid return envelope. Equally, electronic return is NOT permitted. Only Ballot Papers received by the Returning Officer by 10pm on election day can be included in the Count.

Given the above, you may wish to mitigate any possible delays in delivery or return by appointing a proxy to vote in the UK on your behalf.

Kind Regards,
Electoral Services Support Officer
