Kerry Cautioned

Labour’s ill-fated “Twitter Tsar” Kerry McCarthy has been found guilty and cautioned in what, as far as Guido can see, is the only recorded incident of Twitter Electoral Crime. McCarthy was reported to the police by the Sunlight Centre after being alerted by local constituent Michael Owen days before the election that she had leaked postal vote numbers in a get-out-the-vote bid. Normally a motor mouth, the Bristol East MP is surprisingly quiet today…

UPDATE : From the Bristol Evening Post website.

“Police have confirmed that they have cautioned a man and a woman – both from Bristol – following an investigation into alleged electoral fraud earlier this year under the Representation of the People Act 1983.”

Is it fair to suppose that the man was her agent.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
