The Supreme Court has dismissed appeals from two prisoners over the right to vote under European Union rules. Convicted murderers Peter Chester and George McGeoch had argued that EU law gave them a right to vote - even though they cannot under British law.Quoting Mr Europhile himself:
Prime Minister David Cameron told the Commons that the ruling was "a great victory for common sense".But the BBC rightly acknowledges that:
…[that the concept] is now pretty well established that the UK's blanket ban on prisoners voting is in breach of European human rights law.Therefore the issue is far from over yet. It matters not how long the UK Parliament drags this issue out, nor how many times it votes against its implementation, it is in breach of the law of our land.
It remains a running sore and a perfect example of the duplicity of our politicians who try to pretend otherwise.
