The European court and Human Rights
The current argument doing the rounds right now in the UK press is in my opinion the wrong one. The right question should be why is it that we have to rely on the European court to make the judgement it has made and force the government to respect Human Rights and not whether they were right to order us to ensure that prisoners retain their right to vote at elections. We must always remember that miscourages of justice seem to take place quite often in which case it is dangerous and wrong to deny any person their democratic right to vote!
