MPs in futile rejection of prisoner voting rights

The turncoats in Westminster have finally grown a pair and voted in favour of a motion calling for the British government to defy the EU Court of Human Rights over giving prisoners the right to vote.

The motion is non-binding and the British government is still adamant that it must comply with the EU Court of Human Rights' ruling that a blanket ban on prisoners voting is a breach of their rights.

It's good that at least some of the EU's regional administrators in Westminster have defied their EU masters but only 256 of 650 British MPs voted and only 234 of them voted in favour of the motion.  The other 400 will vote in favour of capitulation to the EU when the time comes.
