Non-British commonwealth citizens living in UK should not have the right to vote in British general elections

Additional Information

Non-British commonwealth citizens living in UK should not have the right to vote in British general elections.

Can British Citizens resident in commonwealth countries vote?

Also there are NO checks about claims by householders to be legitimate voters, who may even be illegal immigrants from non-commonwealth countries! Checking of individuals ID cards numbers (or biometric passports of British Citizens) are certainly be useful in this regard.
