In this article in the German Taz I discuss the initiative of the Labourparty too change the structure of football to give fans more say in the running of clubs, that is should Labour win the national elections in 2015.
The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom decided yesterday, that British prisoners have no separate right as European citizens to claim voting rights in European and local elections, along the national elections. The court says that the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) apply nevertheless, which requested that Britain qualify specifications as to which prisoners should be allowed or denied the right to vote. ECHR has declared previously that a blank denial to all prisoners was breaching the European Convention of Human Rights. In 2012 Britain set up a commission to examine which prisoners should receive the right to vote. In that they meet ECHR requirements, but the process can take a long time, even if it may be prolonged politically on purpose. David Cameron publicly stated that he disapproves of prisoners being allowed to vote, and went on record last year, that the right to vote would not be introduced under his government. Whilst he called the decision a victory common sense, whilst Juliet Lyon, the director of the Prison Reform Trust said that denial was antiquated 19th Century practice and a waste of resources.
