Remove the 15 year ban on British Citizens abroad voting

Additional Information

After a British Citizen has lived abroad for 15 years their right to vote in UK elections is removed. This is unfair to the hundreds of thousands of people who have worked in UK and in many cases served UK for their working lives and then retired abroad. I would like to see a bill that would remove the disenfranchisement UK citizens that have lived abroad for more than 15 years.
