We like the EU’s plans to allow prisoners to vote. They’ll annoy everyone who deserves to be annoyed, while also hopefully very slightly tempering the voting public’s batshit crazy attitudes towards crime and punishment.
The changes should provide interesting scope for gerrymandering as well. Has anyone surveyed prisoners on political affiliation? I assume the majority are Labour if anyone, so a few prisons bunged in Lab/Con marginals would help ensure (as if it were needed) that the daft Tory fuckers don’t get in.
