The British public deserves to have confidence in our democracy. We will legislate to ensure that a form of identification must be presented before voting, to reform postal voting and to improve other aspects of the elections process to ensure that our elections are the most secure in the world. We will retain the traditional method of voting by pencil and paper, and tackle every aspect of electoral fraud
Also, the pencil thing has always seemed a bit dodgy to me (advice: take a pen, a big fucking fat marker pen with you.)
As with much of the Tory manifesto, it is intensely vague — but one thing is for sure, voter ID IS NOT the biggest problem when it comes to election fraud in this country.
Much like Torie’s election fraud itself, this part of the manifesto has gone all but unnoticed so far by the mainstream media.
Well, now you know….Laugh or cry? I fucking don’t know anymore.
Clarification: thank you to Florence who pointed out that the Conservative’s were fined regarding by-elections in 2014 and that this a separate matter to the recent dropping of criminal prosecutions relating to the general election in 2015 “the Tory battle bus” scandal.
The original post failed to make this distinction — I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
