Election Court

A very British Judge, Richard Mawrey QC, presiding over the first election court for over 100 years overturned the election of six Labour Party Councillors in Aston and Bordesley Green in Birmingham recently.

A close reading of His Honour's Judgement reveals deep concerns over the new system of postal voting. The Labour Party's has long been focused on securing the highest possible use of postal votes despite the knowledge that the system is deeply flawed.

The Judges comments were scathing:

''Anyone who has sat through the case I have just tried and listened to the evidence of electoral fraud that would disgrace a banana republic.''

And what was the response of Her Majesty's Government ? They have announced that the matter of postal ballots will be 'reviewed', after the general election. Oh well !
