    Can someone please briefly summarise (in words I can understand) of what happened in this case? Hirst v UK (2005)
    The question which I have to answer is; explain why the decision in Hirst v UK 2005 has changed UK law on this point.

    I have researched this case and it was delayed for 5 years because the European Court of Human Rights ruled that the UK putting a voting ban would be unlawful.

    Judges took so long to decide this case until the 17/12/10, where it was held that prisoners who got less than 4 years in jail, would be able to vote, so no damage to democracy there.

    Have I sumarised this case correct here in my opnion?
    If not, please feel free to correct an errors/ pleae give me your advice/ feedback!
    Thanks in ad, much appreciated
