Voting fraud in the UK

Here in the UK we have long prided ourselves on the accuracy and honesty of our election results.
Whilst we may have disappointingly low turn-out's we have always believed the results to be an accurate representation of the people's wishes in accordance with our electoral process.

Unfortunately that no longer seems to be the case.
And it hasn't been for some time now.

Independant scrutineers have openly expressed dismay at how easy it is to apply for postal voting for ficticious people.

And it seems this is reaching alarming proportions with police currently conducting over 50 investigations.

Voter fraud could determine the outcome of the general election as evidence emerges of massive postal vote rigging.
Police have launched 50 criminal inquiries nationwide amid widespread cases of electoral rolls being packed with ‘bogus’ voters.
Officials report a flood of postal vote applications in marginal seats. With the outcome of the closest election in a generation hanging in the balance, a few thousand ‘stolen’ votes there could determine who wins the keys to Downing Street.

Closer inspection reveals that concerns about failings in the UK postal voting system go back some years and various reports have been issued highlighting these concerns. =OWiAT5_WCMOM8gOg07CaBg&usg=AFQjCNGQKjawikQE-_JvSDfanTGRlSnS3w

When reading the above report it somes becomes apparent that this practice is indeed quite common and it affects all the major political parties.

With the introduction of the Political Parties and Elections Act 2009 it has become slighly more difficult but the practice is still far too common and widespread.

However, as revealed in MSM invesigation it is still occurring and those involved can be quite aggressive.

It is worth noting that it is generally accepted that no elections have thought to have been directly affected by this, but who knows for definate?
And who knows about the future?

Voting fraud is completely unacceptable and every effort must be made to eliminate this practice and anyone found guilty of involvement in such practices in my opinion should be punished quite severely and should also relinquish their own voting rights.

I sometimes wonder if the vote rigging is just their private silly wager game, on which they see which team can out-fraud the other each year. I mean, it's not like all the candidates aren't rigged either, is it?

I'm a pretty piss wise sort of person who has been round the block a few times.
I'm also pretty well travelled and nothing much tends to surprise or phase me.

But it seems I've been pretty naive in believing that our electoral and voting systems, whilst being unrepresentative and outdated, were honest and accurate.

It now seems that all the major political parties have been involved in vote rigging.

There is no evidence to suggest that party leaders etc are / were involved or aware of this practice or that it was centrally organised etc.
But I wouldn't be too sure.

Well 'they' do say England's about 3 years behind America
The question that comes to my mind is
What you gonna do about it
Now, before you become like the US
where rigging seems so blatant yet has become all but accepted and tolerated amongst its people - or so it would look like
