I don't think there are any legal requirements in that regard, we made
it a requirement for the board elections because it's impractical for
someone not in the UK to sign forms, etc. I would probably vote
against any candidate not usually resident in the UK for the same
reasons, but I don't think there is anything to stop them standing.
