"But the one issue that has upset us most is the ruling by the European Court of Human Rights allowing votes for prisoners.

"We are fully behind Mr Schindler in his brave move to restore his rights as an expatriate citizen."

Harry Schindler, 90, who has lived in Italy for 40 years, has appealed to the ECHR in a bid to get his right to vote in UK elections back.
