Yes. I don't mind people living elsewhere voting for the own country but when forgien nationals are making more of an effort to vote it just makes me wonder why the UK public aren't as engage? What are the numbers? Are there even released?
The public are engaged. It's the BBC that won't allow viewers to vote by text. Instead they allow mobile viewer to call the shortcode, which on some networks don't even work or when they do they are limited to the amount of calls they can make.
Which networks don't they work on? The numbers work on every major mainland UK network.
The shortcodes don't work on "virtual operators" (Virgin, Tesco, GiffGaff, BT Mobile etc) nor on operators in the Isle of Man, Channel Islands or via Maritime Networks.
They only work on the big four operators - O2, Vodafone, EE and 3.
