I’m in Favour Of Human Rights But There Are Limits

Like many people I support Human Rights, the right for all people to have certain basic freedoms, but the legal system, especially in the European Union, is taking this too far, and creating conflicts with the laws in the UK, which as a member of the European Union, now has to conform to certain of their laws. Currently in the UK, people who are serving prison sentences are not eligible to vote, but the Council of Europe says that the right to vote is a Human Right, and is threatening to fine the UK if they do not agree to change the laws and to comply with this ruling.
