Votes for Prisoners?

“Those who commit a crime have broken their contract with society.”  With those words the British parliament rejected the European Court’s directive to give prisoners the vote.

There are some problems that rank in the category of ‘blindingly obvious’ here.  A ‘contract’ is a written or spoken agreement between two or more parties that is enforceable by law.  Both parties must sign or openly state their agreement to the contract for it to be enforceable.  There was no such agreement, either written or verbal, therefore there was no contract.

Nor is there any such entity as ‘society’.  When politicians claim the right to lord it over the rest of us they do so with the justification that yes, individuals will lose out, but society is the winner.  The fact that such irrational nonsense is not instantly dismissed is a testament to the appalling level of education dispensed by The State.

‘Society’ is a word coined by politicians to describe the aggregate of ‘their’ individual citizens…. their milk cows.  ‘Society’ has the same connotation as ‘herd’.

How can someone break a contract that doesn’t exist with an entity that also doesn’t exist?

British politicians are pretending to stand on principles of which by the very nature of their jobs they have proved themselves bereft.  Any vote cast to determine ones master is an acknowledgement that one is a serf.

As one has to be a serf to vote then surely a locked up prisoner has definitely qualified.  However, they should only exercise that option if they wish to confirm the legitimacy of their serf status.
