SHOULD PRISONERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE? UK FINALLY FOLDS UNDER PRESSURE FROM ECHR


Peter Bone, the Conservative MP for Wellingborough, told the Sunday Times: “I’m not in favor of letting prisoners vote. I find it extraordinary. It’s a bonkers decision. I think a lot of MPs will be concerned about this.”  Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, however, backs the court’s stance. There are currently 19 non-EU members of the ECHR.  Brexit has no implications for the UK’s relationship with the Strasbourg-based court and the European Convention on Human Rights.
