Subject: RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit
Well yes, Backswoodsman, they were silly to leave it so long [daughter of mine registered in part from Thailand and in part from Portugal ages ago..] But that is only one side of the argument. The other is that the government had a legal obligation to provide a means of registration and they failed in that duty, so in the event of a close vote the result would be open to legal challenge. It may well be that it was a mistake to leave the on-line systems open as long as the postal alternative, so when the almost-inevitable crash happened there would still be a legal alternative available, but they didn't, so there wasn't.
