Just caught this on BBC news. It appears these fellows where caught red handed in an apparent attempt to defraud the local elections. (can't be bothered to submit it as "news", as it has been going on for a little while)

Three Labour councillors in Birmingham were caught operating a "vote-rigging factory", an Election Court has heard.

Police found the trio handling unsealed postal ballots in a deserted warehouse in the city during a late-night raid in June 2004, the hearing was told.

Interesting this, also the fact that it hasn't been widely commented on in the media.

Thankfully this was spotted and dealt with straight away. As the news article says it was also confined to a very small number of votes.

(Being a UK local election this small number is sadly always going to be the case)

Whatever it's faults the fact remains that the British electoral process - especially concerning our 'General Elections - is so decentralised and subject to security and scrutiny that suffering a handful of corrupt idiots on the fringes is about all we have to worry about.

Anyone doubting this should join a political party and get involved in time to see it all happen in a few months.......attending a general election 'count' is a bit of an eye-opener.

Sadly now and again a low level of fraud is uncovered, almost always relating to 'Local Gov'; this time it was a handful of idiot Muslims operating under the Labour banner and the last famous case was London tories under Lady Tesco and their gerry-mandering and financial corruption in Westminster.
(.....and of the 2 examples I know which was by far the more serious.
