Prisoner Votes etc

Witterings From Witney highlights this article from the Express claiming that the coalition is prepared to give prisoners the right to votes.

As I blogged here, here and here, this has been an issue that has been rumbling on for quite some time. I always thought the Tories would give in eventually (we don't really have a choice unless we are prepared to fall out with the Council of Europe - which won't happen) but now that they are in coalition with the Lib Dems, prisoner's votes are inevitable with added cream on top.

What the voters think as always is irrelevant.
