    I have yet to see a convincing argument to suggest why all criminals should not be given the vote. The fact that they are criminals does not (should not, should I say) invalidate their opinions.

    Also, capitalisation in title and formatting.

    This bill looks like a joke to me poor formating and it looks kinda rushed.

    Didn't you know about this bill? They are your fellow party members after all :holmes:
    I did know about it, and it embarrasses me.

    I would point out that this bill only removes the right to vote for people guilty of terrorism or treason, not all criminals.

    I am aware, I was just stating my belief that all criminals should be entitled to a vote.

    You mean they should remain disenfranchised, or did I miss the left pushing through some legislation to enfranchise them?
    The left-wing forced through a bill in 2015 to enfranchise all prisoners: it was passed by four votes.

    Don't really know what to say about this to be honest. I mean, I agree about what it does, but also agree with Jammy about that this shouldn't be needed given they should be executed...!

    Surely this would be a good stepping stone though?
