    Bonjour,

    It is not overseas.
    French people living abroad have their deputies in the French parliament. That's it.

    There is no equivalent in British politics. Residents abroad must continue to register themselves at their last address in the UK, so their "député" (= MP) will be the sitting member for the place they last lived in. There is a time limit on how long they may continue to do this, and after long residence abroad (I can't remember if it's 5 years or 15) they have neither voting rights nor an MP to represent them.

    And yes, that does mean that many of the people most personally affected by the Brexit referendum were unable to vote in it! :mad:
