In Two Minds

On the one hand this article annoys me:
The European Union's ruling on giving British prisoners the vote is a blatant breach of our sovereignty.
It was an institution of the Council of Europe ruling, not the EU, but on the other hand any anti-EU publicity is good, however confusing, especially given that other devastating EU policies get ignored.

However that the Telegraph makes such a basic error says a lot about its journalism.


  1. There was a poll at Mark Wadsworth's blog on reactions to the prisoners ruling. One choice was: "It's just another reason to hate the EU, even though it's nothing to do with them".
    This is what I chose.

  2. @WfW Indeed they do...

    @TT, TBH I chose that option as well. A propaganda war it is.
