Votes For Prisoners?

No, of course not.

But if we returned to the situation whereby we could safely assume that almost everyone convicted deserved to be, and where there was far less crime anyway due to proper policing, then no one would be suggesting this.

We could also have proper sentencing, and a proper regime for the far fewer people who were in prison. None of whom would be in for less than four years despite having been convicted of the gravest violent, sexual or drug-related offences.

However, if we didn't implement a ruling of the ECHR, then what would happen? What would it, or anyone else, actually do?
