Voting rights for Prisoners

Its great to see Arthur Taylor dragging the neanderthal government kicking and screaming into Court over the issue of prisoners voting rights or lack of. There is more democracy in his argument than in the entire nauseating corporate electioneering parties all put together. He is quite right that those who have the least freedom are the most affected by disenfrancisement. And furthermore as Maori people are disproportionately imprisoned then they are even more disadvantaged by being unable to participate in the democratic process.
