Vote Rigging

From http://eotp.org/tag/vote-rigging/. The Enemies of the People is a worthy site. A good overview from Private Eye is at Vote Fraud. Why do Third World crooks vote Labour? They are bribed using Government Housing.

Online Voting Is Open To Major Fraud
"My position hasn't changed over the years," said Avi Rubin, a professor of computer science at Johns Hopkins University who specializes in computer security. "Which is that online voting is a very unsafe idea and a very bad idea and something I think no technological breakthrough I can foresee can ever change."

Postal Vote Fraud Could Pervert General Election NB It is Bangla Deshis cheating big time.
QUOTE
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.........

Out of a total estimated electorate of 46million, 7million have registered for postal votes. The Metropolitan Police are examining 28 claims of major abuses across 12 boroughs - with four separate investigations in Tower Hamlets [ ie Bangla Deshis ], East London. Labour supporters stand accused of packing the electoral roll at the last minute with relatives living overseas or simply inventing phantom voters.....In Bethnal Green [ also Bangla Deshi ], it is feared the electoral register has been deliberately stacked with fictitious names........

At a property in Rainhill Way, Bethnal Green, where Labour Party council election candidate Khales Uddin Ahmed lives with his family, seven adults have suddenly joined the electoral roll........

A few streets away, where Labour councillor Shiria Khatun is seeking re-election, her household has been boosted by three new voter registrations at her small flat within the past few weeks........

Tower Hamlets Conservative councillor [ the Jew ] Peter Golds said: ‘There is increasing evidence of ongoing electoral corruption. I am concerned that there will be no attempt to investigate this before election day. ‘All the dodgy addresses seem to involve Bangladeshi names, and the police are terrified of investigating that community for fear of being branded racists. But even more alarming is the apparent extent of her lead, despite Labour’s fall to third place in most opinion polls. If Labour is still in power on Friday, the entire voting system will be in the dock.
UNQUOTE
Labour loves fraud. Labour loves bribing Third World scum to vote for them. What are the Tories doing about it? Nothing. They are fools or rogues.

 

Vote Fraud
QUOTE
BURIED in the small print of the Political Parties and Elections Bill is a huge and unexpected concession from the Labour government. For years it has been debasing the electoral process by making it as easy as possible for the fraudulent to get postal votes. Now it seems to have had a Damascene conversion.
UNQUOTE
A good overview from Private Eye - actually it is even worse.

 

Banana Republic Britain
QUOTE
“They said I didn’t have to fill in any details, just to sign my name at the bottom of the form,” he says, smiling. “So I signed two…I personally know 25 other people who did the same thing, lots of people just on this street, but everybody does it.”

(2010) Conservatice Cllr. Jamshed Khan -GUILTY OF VOTE RIGGING


Five Conservative Party supporters in Bradford, including two former councillors, have been jailed for a combined total of nearly eight years for attempting to rig the voting system in the run-up to a General Election.

Former Tory councillors Reis Khan and Jamshed Khan, together with Mohammed Sultan, Mohammed Rafiq and Alyas Khan conspired in a plot to use fraudulent postal votes with the aim of getting “their man”, Haroon Rashid, elected to the marginal Bradford West seat in the 2005 General Election.

Mr Rashid, who was beaten by 3,026 votes by winning candidate Labour’s Marsha Singh, was cleared in February last year of conspiring to defraud Bradford Council’s registration officer over applications to vote by post.

But yesterday at Leeds Crown Court five other men were imprisoned for electoral offences that, in Judge Robert Bartfield’s view, threatened to “contaminate” the country’s democratic foundations and render those principles “worthless.”

Jamshed Khan, 65, of Russell Street, and Reis Khan, 40, of Whetley Hill, both received 21-month prison sentences, as did Mohammed Sultan, 52, of Toller Lane, and Mohammed Rafiq, 70, of Cecil Avenue, Great Horton.

Alyas Khan, 51, of Hilton Road, who was described in court as a treasurer for the local Conservative association, was given a reduced prison sentence of 11 months in recognition of his guilty plea.

Addressing the conspirators directly, Judge Bartfield said: “Each of you joined an organised campaign to rig the voting system so as to enable false votes to be cast.”

He said the “harvesting” of votes took various different forms, including the registration of people as voters who in some cases did not even exist, the submission of Postal Voting Applications for people who no longer lived at premises and the use of empty premises as false addresses.

Judge Bartfield said the five conspirators had been involved in 213 false postal vote applications as part of a “greater enterprise” involving more than 900 false applications from at least 50 different authors in the run up to the 2005 election.

Judge Bartfield said: “If the press had not intervened in May 2005, the scheme would have continued to the submission of the votes themselves. It was a conspiracy cut off before its serious consequence could be achieved.”

The Judge told Rafiq he should be “ashamed of himself” for “inducing” his 18-year-old daughter to assist him in filling out some of the 114 postal vote applications he forged.

In mitigation, legal representatives for the five men put forward a range of arguments as to why sentences should be reduced or suspended, including previous good character and their roles as heads of their respective families and the fact the case had taken five years, with the “exceptional delay” putting massive strain on the men.

The British “Democratic” System: Does this damage the Morale of British Troops, General?

12/08/20092010 Leave a comment

 

Failing to vote in the general election would damage the morale of British troops, according to the former head of the Army.

General Sir Richard Dannatt has spoken of his concern that the abuse of MPs expenses will lead to voter apathy and warned that this is not what men and women “risking life and limb in the national interest” in Afghanistan would want.

He said it was important that every member of the electorate should cast a vote and show that the sacrifices made in Afghanistan are supported by everyone at home.

Read on

Perhaps general Dannat would care to look at the system he so whimsically champions?

Are you and the British Army glad to be defending this grotesque monstrosity that masquerades as “democracy”?

“We are awaiting comprehensive figures from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), who are collating figures on a rolling basis from the force SPOC officers across the UK of all police investigations currently being carried out relating to cases of electoral malpractice”

“most shambolic, incompetent and fraudulent elections Britain has ever witnessed.”

“How £100k ‘Modern Militant’ presided over voting shambles”

Vote rigging, electoral fraud, gerrymandering… call it what you will. Its perverse crime is the same what ever its moniker. It is a direct attack not only on the People but on everything we hold dear. It is a complete betrayal of trust and a devious, callous act that equates to tyranny. Welcome to fascist Britain, People.

This not an isolated incident. Please refer to the other (reported; the ones we know about) 15 entries on this site: http://eotp.wordpress.com/?s=Vote+rigging

It has now come the time to ask: are we playing a game where the opposition is cheating? Evidently, and frighteningly so, the proof suggests we are. What now, then? Do we stop playing the game called “democracy” and let the opposition not only win but also rub our noses in their victory? Do we continue playing, foolishly expecting the opposition to suddenly be fair and play by the rules?

This is a tough decision because this game called “democracy” is not simply a game to pass the time: this game is a game of life –OUR LIFE.

With that in mind we the People need to call upon a referee. We need a body to oversee elections and ensure the rules are adhered to and fair play is thus maintained. We the People need the British Army to monitor elections. Please vote on this proposition and pass it all to all your contacts:

In light of the weighty evidence confirming vote-rigging by the old-gang parties, should the British Army be called upon to monitor elections? http://polldaddy.com/community/poll/1837752/?view=results

Commission says unusually high number of last minute postal vote applications were made during byelection last year.

The Labour party has been warned by the Electoral Commission over its handling of postal vote applications after it investigated alleged irregularities in last year’s Glasgow North East byelection.

The commission said an unusually high number of last minute postal vote applications were made in Glasgow North East, with 1,800 forms submitted less than three days before the registration deadline – more than a quarter of the total number received.

A spot check of 300 of those forms by the returning officer’s staff found that in at least 100 cases these applications had been dated more than a week and in some cases over a month earlier.

Nearly half of the last-minute registrations came from Labour supporters, sparking allegations from the Scottish National party – first reported by The Guardian – that Labour had been deliberately hoarding postal votes to help its campaign.

In the event, Labour won by a landslide 8,111 votes, securing a 60% share of the vote and demolishing SNP hopes of a second victory in Labour’s Glasgow heartland.

The commission said Labour “did not comply” with a code of conduct that requires political parties to hand in every postal vote application within two days of receiving them, and had been asked to honour those rules in future.

Police investigate ballot papers at Glasgow North East by-election

Three people turned up to vote for the election to discover their names had already been crossed off.

 

A spokesman for the returning officer at the Glasgow North East by-election has confirmed that police are investigating three ballot papers.

 

In what is known as ‘personation’, the spokesperson confirmed that three voters had turned up to cast their ballot on Thursday to discover that their names had already been crossed off the voting register.

 

One person turned up at Alexandra Parade Primary School, while a further two turned up to St Dennis’ Primary School, which are both in Dennistoun.

 

While the police continue to investigative, the spokesman said that the incident was not a “clerical error” and all three votes ballot papers will still be counted.

Police currently have the ballot papers.

Emir of Qatar’s £1.5m gift to mosque ‘won votes for Jack Straw’

Straw

Jack Straw helped to secure a £1.5m donation from the Emir of Qatar to a mosque in his Blackburn constituency.

The justice secretary’s help in fixing the gift was used by the Labour party to woo the Muslim vote, it was claimed this weekend.

MPs, security experts and moderate Islamic leaders said Straw’s role raised serious concerns about the way some foreign states were trying to sway the religious views of British Muslims.

Straw wrote a letter of introduction to help his friend and political ally Lord Patel of Blackburn persuade the emir, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa al-Thani, to part with £1.5m.

Postal vote fraud rocks Birmingham by-election in Sparkbrook

12/08/20092009 1 comment

 

Police are investigating the worst outbreak of voter fraud at a Birmingham City Council election for five years.

Almost 400 postal votes cast at Thursday’s Sparkbrook ward by-election – a third of the total issued – were rejected as likely forgeries.

Council officials, backed by the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties, called in the police after saying they suspected an organised plot to influence the result of the by-election, which was won by Respect candidate Shokat Ali.

In 2004, Birmingham was likened to a “banana republic” by Elections Commissioner Richard Mawrey QC, who investigated hundreds of forged ballot papers at that year’s city council elections.

Birmingham Labour leader Sir Albert Bore said those behind the alleged fraud at Sparkbrook had attempted to destroy the electoral process.

Sir Albert added: “Nearly 400 postal vote ballot papers were rejected because of inconsistencies in either the date of birth or the signature of the elector.

12/08/20092009 1 comment

A Conservative candidate, from Buckinghamshire, who was contesting a marginal seat at the last general election conspired with five other men to ‘rig’ the result, a court has heard.

Haroon Rashid hoped to win the West Bradford seat by using bogus postal vote applications, Leeds Crown Court was told.

Prosecuting, Mr Gordon Cole QC, told the jury the plan was ‘very simple, illegal and dishonest.’

He said: ‘Had the conspiracy continued on through to the end, had it been successful, Haroon Rashid may very well have been elected as Member of Parliament and been sitting in the House of Commons.’

Rashid, 38, of Richings Way, Iver, Mohammed Sultan, 51, of Toller Lane, Bradford, Mohammed Rafiq, 68, of Cecil Avenue, Bradford, Reis Khan, 39, of Whetley Hill, Bradford and Jamshed Khan, 64, of Russell Street, Bradford, all deny conspiracy to defraud the electoral registration officer of Bradford City Council.

Another man, Alyas Khan, has admitted the charge, the jury was told.

Mr Cole told the jury the case involved Postal Vote Applications and a conspiracy to submit fraudulent applications.

Mr Cole said the defendants falsely registered individuals to vote on the electoral register, using the names of people who did not live at the addresses to which they were registered.

The plan was to ‘harvest’ the bogus votes, he added.

He said they hoped to ‘rig’ the system ‘so that Haroon Rashid could and would get elected’

The trial continues

The jury was told the conspiracy failed and the sitting MP was re-elected by just over 3,000 votes.
