Harman: Labour Voters Are Too Thick to Fill in a Form

Along with suggesting that removing their inbuilt 5-7% point advantage is “gerrymandering”, Labour are making a lot of noise about new changes that will mean individuals have to register to vote rather than the head of the household doing it for everyone that lives in a property. Harman is frothing at the mouth and will close conference by saying:

“The Tories are hoping if they take away the right to vote from students, young people living in rented flats in our cities, people from ethnic minority communities… if fewer of them can vote it will help the Tories win.”

It’s times like this that the darker side of Labour’s patronising statism and attitude towards the individual really shines through. Basically Harman saying that Labour voters are too thick to fill out a form. If that is the deputy leaders attitude toward to the public, then she doesn’t deserve to represent them. Given some of their strongholds, you might wonder why Labour are really so keen to keep the head of the household filling out the form…

            This is a disgraceful, outrageous and partisan attempt by the Tories to disenfranchise Labour voters and Cameron and his ilk should be thoroughly ashamed of this debasement of democracy.

            At a stroke, this legislation will remove from the register millions of students, young people living in rented flats in our cities, people from ethnic minority communities, imaginary made up people with silly names and the dead. Imagine such Britain with all these people left without a voice to stand up to the Tories and their evil cuts – men, women and corpses.

          Lord Carrington's Binoculars says:

          “A senior judge made a scathing attack on the postal voting system yesterday [2005], condemning the government for complacency in the face of fraud which would disgrace a “banana republic”.

          He found six Labour councillors in Birmingham guilty of carrying out “massive, systematic and organised” postal voting fraud to win two wards during last June’s elections for the city council.

          It was carried out with the full knowledge and cooperation of the local Labour party and “extensively prevailed” throughout the city, where applications for postal votes soared from 28,000 to 70,000 last year.

          In a damning judgment which ran to 192 pages, he said the system for registering postal vote applications was “hopelessly insecure”. There was no way of checking whether the person who had applied for the vote was the legitimate voter.

          There had been “widespread theft” of postal votes, either en masse from corrupt postal workers or on a smaller scale from the letterboxes of householders, the court heard.

          In his judgment yesterday, Mr Mawrey condemned the government for refusing to change the postal voting system in advance of the general election because it believed that systems to prevent fraud were “clearly working.”

          And the Labour f*ck*ers go on about Shirley Porter….

        It may be accurate that 26 voters are living in every 2-bedroom terrace there, but whether they are all Labour voters or not is up for grabs.

        In those areas (plus a few more – you all know where they are), the ‘head of the household’ makes all that household’s votes available as a block to the highest bidder. True, that is most often Labour, but the other parties play the game too, just not quite as ‘professionally’.

        Many of these will involve the placing of her person, via robotic space probes, into very very faraway environments, which hitherto we have only experienced via Cassini, Hubble and the Voyagers.

      true enough. Labour would be more than happy for each council estate to have one voting officer cast votes on behalf of all the tenants.

      One person One vote is the bedrock of democracy. But then, labour have always detested democracy and gerrymandered every system to best suit their party. From the London elections to Euro elections to Scottish elections. Each one different and designed to maximise labour representation. FPTP where they have an advantage (1997 – 2010 for general elections) and PR or AV when they don’t.

      Only the mathematically illiterate, dictatorial bastards in the labour party could accuse the change in voting which will leave labour with a 3% built in advantage over the tories as gerrymandering in favour of the tories!!!

      OK it is ensuring that their advantage is reduced from about 9%, but they will be left in a situation whereby they can win a general election majority far easier than the tories can. The current system is grossly biased in favour of labour. How can it be right that Tony Blair “won” an election with 35% of the vote, only 2% more than the tories, and got rewarded with 66 seat majority, but the tories “lost” the election in 2010 with 36%, a 7% lead over labour and could NOT form a majority?

      This is not a fault of FPTP, as the biggest party should almost always get a majority under that system and even with a very narrow win in 2005, labour still had a majority. It should only render a coalition with the narrowest of wins for any party and the tories had a MUCH bigger win over labour in 2010, than labour had over the tories in 2005 and yet got no majority.

      This is a fault of the boundary allocation within FPTP rather than a fault OF FPTP.

    Well, I say that if you’re too stupid to be able to write down your name and date of birth on a piece of paper then you shouldn’t have the right to vote.

    This is one of the reasons that labour wanted to give prisoners the vote too (ie not to fight against the EU “rights” laws).

    Who votes labour?….

    1) Fuckwitted morons who can’t understand even the most basic reasoned argument.
    2) Layabouts who can’t be arsed to do anything but will vote labour in return for a labour government giving them a cheque every week so they can sit on their arse and watch daytime tv every day.
    3) Prisoners.
    4) People like Polly Toyboy and all her champagne socialist wanker friends.
    5) Labour politicians.

    That 16 year old kid who stood up at the conference and said that the evil tories made his whole family bankrupt and he wouldn’t be able to afford a pencil for his schoolwork or a loaf of bread under the tories (when in fact his dad went bust under labour, and he was busy tweeting from his ipad during the conference, and he lives in a fucking lovely big house in a posh area and went to private school and now goes to a grammar school) is a perfect example of what labour are all about; lie your arse off, con the media, let the BBC run with your lefty spin/lies, and ignore/brush-off all the people who confront you on your total bullshit.

    Someone ought tell Harperson that the Labour only managed to fiddle a hung parliament because of postal vote rigging, allied to the commonwealth voting rules, in marginal seats.
    Lots of peoples relatives, not British but Commonwealth citizens, put on forms as resident in the UK, when they were not. Now the simplest solution would be to have a proper investigation into postal voting, scrap it, as it is as bent as 3 quid note and move elections to a Sunday (to ensure higher turnout) or just make the commonwealth voting rule only apply to countries that are signed up to it. This would only mean Australia, NZ and the Carribean countries.

    But, any investigation into postal vote fraud, would uncover some uncomfortable truths for certain groupings and for the liberal ruling class. Hence the alternative being suggested is a convenient fix. It makes fraud a lot more difficult and saves the blushes of certain groups.

    And the type of person who can’t be bothered to register is most likely the type of person who wouldn’t vote anyway. Labour and their toadies on the ground, won’t be able to harvest votes from people who have know idea that they have even voted.
