With Britain’s armed forces rated highly in public esteem, the British government needs to be more sensitive to the influence of the media on public opinion, in the case of old soldier Harry Shindler’s voting rights claim via the European Court of Human Rights. It’s not quite the same situation as the government’s legal defence in the case of prisoners’ voting rights, although they are relying on the same basic argument of no human right to universal suffrage within the European electoral heritage.
