UK Labour Vote Rigging - Judge Says Claims Upheld

And here I thought vote-rigging was something that only occured in Banana Republic countries, or the USA.

For those that missed this story;

A judge investigating vote-rigging in Birmingham's local elections has ruled there was widespread fraud and has ordered new elections.

Election Commissioner Richard Mawrey QC upheld allegations of postal fraud relating to six seats won by Labour in the ballot of 10 June last year.

The results have been declared void and the polls in two wards must be rerun.

"The system is wide open to fraud and any would-be political fraudster knows that," Judge Mawrey said.

Judge Mawrey said evidence of "massive, systematic and organised fraud" in the campaign had made a mockery of the election and ruled that not less than 1,500 votes had been cast fraudulently in the city.

The deputy high court judge said the system was "hopelessly insecure" and expressed regret that recent warnings about the failings had been dismissed by the government as "scaremongering".

He criticised the government's insistence that the current postal
voting system was working, adding: "Anybody who has sat through the case I have just tried and listened to evidence of electoral fraud that would disgrace a banana republic would find this statement surprising."

Should any of us be surprised any more by these shocking examples of open fraud. You would be niave if you are, I think.

In a way it's a good thing, that this UK rigging cases have been highlighted (for a change!) by the MSM. But.... notice those local-politicans who orchestrated and benefited from this cunning scheme, are of Asian descent....

Maybe I'm reading too much into this. Perhaps if the perps in this story were White, the details would still be presented as vigourously!?

Or perhaps all the lies that are continually shoved down the public's throat have reached a critical point. A point where the truth-seeking individual, does not know when the MSM are actually telling the truth anymore.
