The question is then, why should one pay (full) tax?
In this day and age, especially in the European Community with "free" movement of labour, especially with these countries claiming to be "democratic", surely something ought to be done about voting rights.
In my case, originally from the UK, I could vote in the British General Election, but only for 10 years. Living in Amsterdam, I can vote in the municipal elections, but not nationally while still having to pay full Dutch income tax. Strangely, I can vote in British European elections.
Doesn't seem quite right does it?
Shouldn't it be "no taxation without representation"?
