      Strange on the one I did it was at the bottom, £ showing, no problems at all with the people running the poll they were careful even the poll card was shown and they went through the list and asked my name and road number as they had already asked for my road, I was asked if I would be voting in the local one, strange question as I’am a there to vote and was given both papers, both clear and concise, all logo’s for each party and name shown, put Xs where required and the EU one had something on the back, which I missed but was checked, maybe I will get a 3:00am knock on the door tomorrow morning for voting for the wrong party.

        the ballot papers are kept for a year and each has a unique number to identify the voter

        it’s all secret see?

        then at the next election the party you last voted for comes to visit to get your vote again

        i’m guessing gchq have the database of past voting too

          Correct – that’s why a local Scotch labour party scam managed to “lose” the vital electoral register a few years ago.

          Gordon was over the moon at that as it was for the constituency next to his.

    Went to vote UKIP for this morning – opened the ballot paper and could not find UKIP on the ballot paper….the UKIP box (and only the UKIP box) is obscured (no sorry hidden) by a strategic fold at the bottom of the paper. There is absolutely no reason to fold a paper in such a way. Who knew the electoral commission officials were so skilled in origami. My wife made exactly the same complaint….folding a paper in half would have been effective – why did they need an additional fold to hide a single party?

        I emailed the Electoral commission some days ago to ask what they had done to stop this ‘folding thing’…. I got the following reply

        “Thank you for your email to the Electoral Commission.

        I can confirm that the Electoral Commission’s guidelines, stating that ballot papers should be handed to voters unfolded, are still in place.”

        Seems like they have not reinforced this guidance, to make it an instruction.

        Complain to the returning officer, the folded papers will be there for all to see at the count, the evidence will be there.*
        Of course the poster now at all polling stations telling of the ban on photography should prevent any evidence being produced until after the poll has closed.

        * this assumes, of course, that votes for UKIP will still be in the box when ‘opened’ at the count after days in ‘secure’ storage overseen by ‘impartial’ officials.

      They are so arrogant that they can blatantly cheat and don't care who sees it says:

      I have just voted and was handed completely unfolded forms – people on the ground must be doing this. I would suggest it may be illegal to deliberately seek to obscure any candidates from the ballot paper so find a Police Officer to go into the Polling station where this is happening and ask him to establish who has given the instruction to do this as they are likely in breach of criminal law, at least the catch all malfeasance in public office. This stinks and all Polling stations should potentially have results disqualified for the whole vote including postal votes. The Electoral Commission are only doing what they are paid to do – maintain the establishment hegemony – check out Jenny Watson’s impressive CV of failing to achieve anything positive with any of her sinecures. I recently emailed Bob Neill, my local MP about postal voting – reply must have got lost in cyberspace

Or could he and that provider, at the very least strive to create a digital library. Where the identities of those who have successfully subverted history, to potentially allow them to repeat it, are listed. Such that a quick interweb search throws up an alert. In regard to the trust, or distrust, the public should in future confer on said individual.

    One of the greatest teachers I ever had at school was a leftie who hated Thatcher. Before you jump on me, let me finish explaining why he was great.

    He made no bones about being left wing. But during a debate on politics, when a pupil said parties like the B — N — P should be banned, he asked “Why are you such a fascist?” The boy said he was surprised that he of all people would be against banning them, but the teacher said just because you loathe a political party doesn’t mean you have the right to ban them. He said he hated the B — N — P too but if someone wanted to vote for them, that’s their right and no one should take it away.

    He believed in the principle of “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” Today’s lefties of the UAF, Hope Not Hate and Labour ilk are ultra fascists who are bent on illegal tactics like vote tampering, post vote fraud and all out violence.

Google represents the forces of progress and modernity, the antithesis of UKIP’s regressive plans, followers and doctrine. One sincerely hopes its days are numbered as voters take a sober look at their policies and protagonists.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
