Votes for Prisoners!
So there you have it, three men all with the same agenda. All three positively delighted that the Human Rights Act has hammered one more nail into the coffin of British Society. All three of them in the same boat and all three reflecting personal characteristics which would horrify decent people.
I cannot think of a better reason for demanding a referendum on the EU and in today's debate our politicians should be concentrating on this issue and nothing else. David Cameron says he fells 'physically sick' about giving the prisoners the vote but he still won't do the decent thing. What is he scared of? What prevents him from broaching the key issue in modern politics?
UPDATE: The Commons has thrown it out! No votes for prisoners. Now the fun will start when the EU commissars try to exact their revenge!
