LETTER: No voting rights for prisoners

THE Government must stand absolutely firm and maintain the ban on prisoners’ voting rights.

Never mind options of giving votes to prisoners sentenced to four years or less or six months or less.

Prisoners have broken their contract with society and they forfeit the right to take part in elections. End of.

The overwhelming feeling in the country is for a blanket ban and the Government must stand up to the Mickey Mouse tribunal, the European Court of Human Rights.

PAUL NUTTALL,

UKIP North West MEP
