Jailhouse vote

John Hirst, a prisoner serving a "Discretionary life imprisonment" for manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility in 1980 seems to be keeping himself busy by pursuing a legal case against the Government in the British and European courts. He claims that his rights to "free elections", "free expression" and "prohibition of discrimination" have been breached.

I wonder what his victim would have thought of John's lack of rights?
