Many of you may have heard of the action brought in the High Court by my client Harry Shindler MBE, the 94 year old war veteran, and Jacquelyn MacLennan, partner of White of Case LLP in Brussels.They claim that their exclusion for the franchise of British citizens able to vote in the EU Referendum in June 2016 is a breach of their right of free movement and violates the EU Treaty. They lost the case at the High Court, and are now appealing. The hearing at the Court of Appeal is fixed for 9th May 2016.They are asking for an amendment to be made to the Referendum Act 2015, to remove the proviso that only British citizens who have been registered to vote in the UK in the last 15 years can vote in the Referendum. This is the rule that is currently in place for voting in general elections. The Government has already committed to removing this rule and to introduce Votes for LIfe, but sadly this was not put into effect in time for the EU Referendum. If the appeal is successful, it may be possible to enfranchise up to 2 million British citizens living in the EU in time for this crucial vote, of interest to all expats in Italy and the rest of Europe. They are proposing a system of online registration in a centralised "expat" constituency.

I am a teacher of Italian as a second language and I can tell you that there are not so many places to learn Italian for free. Most places are for immigrants like Centro Astalli and many others. Anyway you can always join them.

A new campaign group has recently formed in the UK called WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign) to "seek fair transitional arrangements for all women born on or after 6th April 1951 who have unfairly borne the burden of the increase to the State Pension Age (SPA). Hundreds of thousands of women have had significant changes imposed on them with a lack of appropriate notification. The 1995 Conservative Government’s Pension Act included plans to increase women’s SPA to 65, the same as men’s. Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI), agree with equalisation, but don’t agree with the unfair way the changes were implemented – with little/no personal notice (1995/2011 Pension Acts), faster than promised (2011 Pension Act), and no time to make alternative plans. Retirement plans have been shattered with devastating consequences." A crowdfunding exercise raised enough to pay for legal advice and barristers are currently considering potential action. A petition has been signed by more than 21,000 people since the 20th October. Yesterday it was announced that the Parliamentary Select Committee for Work and Pensions will be seeking submissions from women born in the 50's. "The Work and Pensions Committee have launched an inquiry into the new State Pension introduced in April 2016. Concerns have been raised that many of those who will be affected by the changes do not know enough about the changes or exactly what they will mean for their pensions." More details here http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/work-and-pensions-committee/news-parliament-2015/state-pension-launch-15-16/ I am sure that there are many of you (like me) who are affected by these changes. You may want to consider signing the petition and asking your family and friends to do the same herehttps://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/110776 You can find more information about the campaign and read some of the heartbreaking stories about women who have been left without the money they are entitled to herehttps://www.facebook.com/WASPI-Women-Against-State-Pension-Inequality-Campaign-877054125688402/?fref=ts Please pass this information to the women you know who were born in the 50's!

I keep hearing about free Italian language lessons "somewhere in Rome" that may or may not be sponsored by the State, but no one seems to know the particulars. Do any of you have further information?  An unrelated question: how much do gyms cost (ballpark figure)?  Many thanks.
