Cambridge’s Lib Dem MP votes in favour of giving votes to prisoners

People who break the law should not be in a position to make the law. It seems to me that when someone is put in prison they have to give up certain rights that we all enjoy, voting being one of them.  The right to vote is a very special right. It is at the heart of democracy.

Some people decide to not obey the rules of our civilised society and have decided to behave selfishly and as a result have lost the right to vote whilst in prison.

67% of the public do not want prisoners to have the right to vote but guess what, Julian Huppert thinks differently. He, along with only 21 other MP’s voted in favour of giving votes to prisoners. Happily, 234 other MP’s voted against. Julian is clearly out of step with what the public think, again.
