          it’s normally said that it doesn’t matter what the polls say, the only one that matters is the one on election day. personally I’d trust the polls more than the election results. there is too much opportunity for rigging and too many people prepared to do it. postal voting was brought in by Labour specifically to rig the voting – it being known that postal vote cheating is always to Labour’s advantage (as admitted by Stephen Pound Labour MP).

          we need direct democracy, lots of referendums. this once every half decade nonsense that nobody trusts isn’t real democracy.

          I’ve a question re registration for voting.

          When you say there are 4 people entitled to vote in your house.
          How do they know, the 4 people are entitled to vote ?

          Who checks, and when do they check ?

      Only last week, BBC director of news and current affairs James Harding told a social media conference organised by the BBC Academy of Journalism and the New York Times that corporation staff should not tweet anything they would not say on air – where they are bound by strict BBC guidelines on impartiality.

      The question is, which fuckwit gave the job to that particular returning officer and his staff to run an election? Clearly, they have none of the attributes required for the task if they did not remove that poster of their own volition.

      It is a pretty obvious breach of the rules.

      I think though we have another issue to face – what happens to the counted ballots in the coming days? Are there enough volunteers and police to be sure that the far left – who have infiltrated the media and academia so completely, aren’t in the counting process and a related position of authority and accidentally throw a lot of ukip votes in the bin.

      It’s very sad we have to think about this in britain but with open fraud in the postal vote system going unpunished what are we to do?

    Conduct that would shame a banana republic if you ask me (is it ok to still say that or is it racist now? – I must ask the BBCs Director of Editorial Policy and Standards who seems to decide what we should or shouldn’t say).

    Before the next GE, we should rise up and demand fair elections.

    - Individual Vote registration
    - Limited postal voting
    - Vetting of all election / polling station officials
    - Handling, harvesting and collecting of Ballot papers to be made illegal
    - Increase penalties for voter intimidation and personation
    - Removal of activist and Qango Queen, Jenny Watson as Head of the Electoral Commission
    - All votes must be of equal value (equal-size constituencies)

    And every party leader must agree to these fundamental democratic principles – including Clegg and Miliband who continue to seek to benefit from the current undemocratic arrangements, particularly the unreformed boundaries.

    The simple question for both of them is: ‘Do you agree that everyone’s vote should be of equal value?’

      ECHR Article 1 Protocol 3 provides as follows:

      The High Contracting Parties shall hold free elections at reasonable intervals by secret ballot, under conditions which will ensure the free expression of the opinion of the people in the choice of the legislature.

      ECHR Article 3 of Protocol No.1

      Everyone has the right to elect the government of his/her country by secret vote. Without this right there can be no free and fair elections. It guarantees the citizens’ free expression, the proper representativeness of elected representatives and the legitimacy of the legislative and executive bodies, and by the same token enhances the people’s confidence in the institutions.

      Of course the only problem is when the Government are rigging it they can use “Parliamentary Supremacy” to get around it, so unless someone wants to use Factortame case to annul that defense….only one other option…Guido Mark I

        I don’t think that the Government are rigging it on this occasion.

        The problem with democracy, particularly with those on the left (as evidenced by all of those countries with ‘Democratic’ in their name) is that democracy gets in the way of their totalitarian aims.

        Look at Labour:

        - Their leader was elected undemocratically
        - The Unions call strikes undemocratically
        - Their supporters have sought to gain advantage for their ideals by infiltrating the BBC, Quango’s and other bodies. They are effectively a government in opposition
        - Labour are determined to hang on to their boundaries electoral advantage*
        - When in power, Labour used the votes of their Scottish and Welsh MPs to push through legislation on English-only issues. Legislation that they would not have got through otherwise.

        *A few months ago a senior Labour MP, dismissed the boundaries issue as a quirk of the electoral system and a situation were more Tory voters turn out in rural areas. There votes are wasted.

        Then in the past two weeks, the BBC have, ‘on message’, described the boundaries outrage in the same terms – adopting Labour’s language.

        (But with Labour supporting editors in their newsrooms I wouldn’t expect anything different)

    At the top of our ballot paper (S.E. London) is “4 Freedoms Party – UKEPP”, even above the “An Independence from Europe” one. We had a leaflet delivered by “UKEPP” last week – it arrived folded inside a Labour leaflet, same deliverer! (But perhaps both parties are using paid deliverers rather than volunteers.)

    Also I voted at two different polling stations this morning, one as a proxy vote. Both ballot papers were folded and not re-opened when they were given to me.

    I have wondered about the possible existence of some mutated brainy fuckers who were just so fucking smart they could do psychological evaluation in an instant and say just the right thing to get anybody to do what they wanted.
    I guess it’s possible, It would be nice to think that the human brain could evolve to be capable of such understanding but then in the real world it seems impossible that such people might exist.

        it is relevant to the concern that some people are advancing ideas into law to limit human thought by forbidding thought that doesn’t fit in with the plan. You would have to be really smart to have a plan like that or really fucking stupid.
        If somebody says ” Wow, I like your tits ” It’s not sexist, it’s just a guy saying that he’d like to suck on your tits. What’s wrong with that ?

The alleged offences, dating from 1967 to 1985, are related to 22 boys aged nine to 16. Mr Denning was one of the original Radio 1 team when the station was launched in 1967. He was initially arrested under Operation Yewtree in June 2013.

    Hey Len McFucksky

    Almost all workers are legally entitled to 5.6 weeks’ paid holiday per year (known as statutory leave entitlement or annual leave). An employer can include bank holidays as part of statutory annual leave.

    So why do you want to protect 4 weeks ??

      I know..I emailed them about it. Said we get 5.6 now + extras.

      They didn’t respond but I believe its because the EU minimum is 4 weeks.
      If so being in the EU is of no benefit to us re holidays as we already get more.

    Is it the policy of the Halifax Bank to push election information? For inside our local outlet was a UKIP handout on a counter. Despite being asked, a staff member refused to bin the offending item. Is the Halifax really helping UKIP get elected?

    A Quote to Note says:

    “If democracy is ever to be threatened, it will not be by revolutionary groups burning government offices and occupying the broadcasting and newspaper offices of the world. It will come from disenchantment, cynicism and despair caused by the realization that the New World Order means we are all to be managed and not represented.” Tony Benn

    And yet, while UKIP must understand this point, if in power – will they be willing to rock the boat?

    Just been to cast my Vote @ polling station & guess what they are
    still folding the ballot papers. When I stated this wrong, one of the three
    ladies pointed out the guidance notes from the electorial commission !!
    saying they should fold them…….

    Also the ballot boxes are all being held at one location until Sunday
    before they are opened & counted, sounds like the perfect opportunity
    to fiddle the results……….

    Democracy is something ConsLieLaborLebDims Alliance does not allow

    For the last 3 or 4 elections, there has been a Labour-rosette-weilding numptie, sitting just in from the entrance to the school (sort of porch area) where my polling station is. Perhaps this is allowed. Though ‘vote Labour’ is only implied, this sort of thing is to be expected from my rotten Labour borough.

    I once didn’t fold my ballot paper sufficiently well, exposing the ‘Conservative’ cross, and you should have seen the faces of the staff drop. I didn’t get any notification of the next two elections and am sure I spotted a little dot by my name, when I went to vote, anyway.

    British democracy, eh?

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
