The European Court of Human Rights has rejected a government attempt to overturn a ruling that prisoners should get the vote.I don't particularly mind if prisoners get the vote, But I am going to enjoy seeing europhile MPs like Cameron trying to explain how to fit the square peg of "we won't yield any more power to Brussels" into the round hole of "oh yes you will, matey".
It has given Britain six months to draw up proposals for changing the law.
It now has to decide how to reconcile the opinion of MPs, who voted in February by a large majority against giving prisoners the vote, with the demands of the court.
That’s the way to bet, yes
