Votes for Prisoners!

Defiant: Axe killer John Hirst said he had taken Parliament 'hostage' and boasted MPs were powerless to block his campaign to win prisoners the vote
This is John Hirst, a former axe murderer, who has led a proposal to ensure that prisoners are allowed to vote. He has been given air time by The Daily Politics Show despite being an arrogant, abusive pig. Today he refused to apologise to Priti Patel, a Conservative MP, for labelling her a 'Paki'.

He is actually doing everyone a favour because his objectional behaviour is highlighting the flaws with our membership of the European Union. He was followed onto the screen this lunchtime by someone every bit as arrogant and abusive as himself, Lord Prescott. I cannot think of anyone from the Political Class who epitomises the arrogant bully so well as John Prescott. In his time he has ditched more socialist principles than any other man alive and yet he still gets air time. He was positively gloating today that the prisoners would win the right to vote because the Strasbourg judges can overrule British Law. Our Justice Minister Ken Clarke also agrees with him.

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!
