The UK moved to an all postal voting system years ago, and though warned of the potential for fraud, ignored the warnings, well…
Human rights investigators probing alleged election fraud in the UK are visiting London and Brighton next week to take evidence.
The inquiry has been launched by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the Strasbourg-based human rights watchdog.
A resolution signed by 18 Assembly members – national politicians from the Council’s 46 member countries – cites “a growing body of evidence that widespread absent vote fraud is taking place in the United Kingdom”.
The UK Electoral Commission warned of possible abuses and urged tighter security after postal and proxy voting on demand was introduced in 2001.
It repeated warnings of possible abuses in 2004 when nothing had changed.
Then in 2005, a judge hearing a case of about alleged postal voting fiddles in Birmingham said the evidence of electoral fraud “would disgrace a banana republic”.
