The Exclusive Nobody Will Read

The High Court has blocked a compensation bid by prisoners barred from voting. Sam Coates at The Times has got hold of a memo suggesting Britian can ignore the unaccountable court’s decree. However behind the paywall no one is going to see it. It also seems that they haven’t even bothered to upload to original document. This is why The Guardian website is much more successful.

Apparently the “worst case scenario” is 70,000 to 80,000 prisoners at any given time could claim compensation estimated at up to £143 million. The court has no legal powers to force the Government to pay though.

No money for Mr Hirst then.

UPDATE: Ask and ye shall receive. The memo has been put, this side of the wall. A concession that nobody would see it otherwise…

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
