Is it me, or do you find this distasteful?

I read this on the BBC News online website and have to say that I found it distasteful to say the least. Voting rights for prisoners??
Why on earth should any prisoner have the right to the vote. The word “right” is interesting as with it comes responsibility, and the very fact that you are in prison surely means you have not acted responsibly. I for one am fed up of hearing more about rights of criminals, be they in prison or not, and nothing about the rights of law abiding citizens.
I’m sure the blogger jailhouselawyer (John Hirst) mentioned in the piece will have a very different view.
