European Meddling In Treatment of Prisoners

No, not here.  David Stringer and Don Melvin report for AP that Britain is seriously considering leaving the European Union.  Among the grievances:

Such distrust is tangled with worries over the fallout from the European debt crisis and anger at the European Court of Human Rights -- castigated by British politicians for ordering Britain to give prisoners a vote in national elections, and preventing the U.K. from deporting terrorism suspects to countries with patchy human rights records.
If the UK does split from the EU, a declaration stating the reasons is in order.  Maybe it could begin something like this:

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another ... a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
