A spokesperson for the Electoral Commission has admitted that there are serious concerns on the eve of the EU Referendum after a number of ballot counting computers only registered REMAIN votes in testing.
A source in Zahlen’s Southend On Sea testing centre said: ‘As a test exercise, we got 10,000 schoolchildren to put a cross on a replica of the official ballot paper for the EU Referendum, and then our team of volunteers manually counted them all. 57% voted to leave the EU, 41% voted to remain, and the remaining 2% were spoiled. However, once the entire test batch had been put through one of the £35,000 counting machines, the results were given as 41% to remain and 59% spoiled – it recognised every ‘leave’ vote as a spoiled paper and in my opinion it is way too late to fix it now.
Just when you thought that the EU Referendum couldn’t get any crazier, Southend News Network can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that a major industrial supporter of the Vote Leave campaign has decided that we are an ACTUAL news site and not a satirical outlet with stories about Mr Tumble being suspended over a failed CRB check and mathematical fundamentalists launching a campaign of terror on a bakery for leaving the crosses on their hot cross buns.
