CRIME PAYS AS EU RULES PRISONERS ARE ENTITLED TO VOTE AND AWARD COMPENSATION TO CRIMINALS – The debate over whether a convicted criminal; and one that is currently imprisoned, should be allowed to vote has long been an issue.
There are many people who feel that anyone serving time behind bars should have certain privileges, such as voting, removed; liberty after all should only be applied to those who abide by the law.
Of course if the British Government had their way this would be the case but unfortunately the UK’s laws are always overruled by EU law and once again the European Convention on Human Rights has stepped in and told the British Government that restricting a prisoners right to vote is unlawful, against their human rights and that the Government must provide compensation to the victims.
If your jaw is currently on the floor as this latest act of EU stupidity and British Government’s incompetence at stopping the EU then it will comes as little comfort that the EU has ruled that each of the ‘victims’ should be compensated to the tune of £1,000 for each year a prisoner has been denied the right to vote; in most cases this is about 5 years.
Who says crime doesn’t pay? Our criminals already experience the good life on the inside and now they are in for a cash windfall; simply because the EU has once again intervened and poked its non-elected nose in our business.
When will the British public finally make a stand and tell the EU enough is enough? Yesterday I wrote an article on how MEPs are openly stealing taxpayers’ money and yet despite this actual EU law allows them to do so.
I must be one of the biggest mugs on the planet. Here I am working 14 hours a day for nothing, literally – you can see we work off the generosity of our readers but with times being tough I can assure you what we do get is barely keeping us a float.
What I should do is commit a few robberies. Hell, there’s no way the courts will imprison me until I’ve committed at least 10 offences and then I’ll be afforded free room and board at the taxpayers’ expense.
Whilst the honest taxpayer is struggling to make ends meet our criminals get access to three square meals a day, free education, free cable TV and all the recreational facilities you can swing a cat at.
Something is so wrong and yet the public stand idly by whilst the EU continues to rape us of our finances.
As to be expected it gets worse. Right now the usual bottom-feeders, commonly known as lawyers, are trawling through a list of potential clients in order to help them claim the compensation through our legal aid system. So not only will the taxpayer have to fork out compensation for those criminals who have been denied the right to vote but we’ll be picking up the tab on the lawyers bills.
Stop and ask yourself why you think crime is rife within the UK. You might just come to the same conclusion I have; in that crime does pay and with the EU full of un-elected criminals this has become more of a fraternity of thieves and the only way out is to sack the present incompetent government and pull out of the EU with immediate effect.
SOS – Save our Sanity – because there is none in the halls of Government and less within the EU.
