“WE MUST bring an end to postal voting altogether” For Britain Leader Anne Marie Waters has suggested, following the shocking revelations of abnormally high postal votes and alleged postal vote fraud during the Peterborough By-Election.
“Only people who are disabled, extremely elderly, and people who are unable to make it to the ballot box, or who have a genuine reason for not being in the country on the day – only they should have a postal vote, and it must be strictly policed” said Waters, who has long spoken-out against cultural voting tactics and electoral fraud.
“We must also have an end to 20 people from the same house registered to vote” she added. “If there is an unusual number of people registered to vote at the same house, that must be investigated in person at that house”.
Her call comes at a moment when Politicalite have been investigating the suspicious rejection over no less than 400 postal votes during the By-Election – the majority of which were rejected due to the date of birth or signature on the postal votes not matching those held on the council’s system.
A rise in houses of multiple occupancy in Peterborough City – a place with one of the highest concentrations of immigration in the country – has also been accompanied by a rise in allegations of landlords – predominantly of Pakistani origin – exploiting their tenants by forcing them to vote for Labour.
One Peterborough Landlord, Tariq Mahmood, is also currently under grave suspicion following his heavy involvement in the ‘crooked’ Peterborough By-Election that saw over 13,000 postal votes issued, with many, it is alleged, coming from the same households.
Of these postal votes, a whopping 400 were rejected on the grounds that they did not match the details of the intended recipient held on file.
Politicalite can reveal that the Council are now sending out letters to every one of these postal voters who had their votes cancelled – yet due to the fact that legally the result of a Parliamentary election can only be challenged within 21 days of the result being announced, this relaxed and slow approach is far from satisfactory, with calls for a full investigation to be launched.
Suspicions have also fallen upon votes being allegedly made inside polling stations by people who did not legally own those votes.
“We should also be bringing ID to polling stations to be able to vote” said Anne Marie. “There’s nothing unusual about this, nothing controversial. You need ID to open a bank account. You need ID to go to a library.”
“There is nothing outrageous about wanting people to produce ID at the ballot box”.
“Of course, Labour is against that, and we all know the reason why – Labour is corrupt to the core. It is not the Labour of the working class people. It is not the Labour that stood up for the poor in the past. It is not the Labour of the NHS. It is not the Labour of vast swathes of people in this country who still vote for them”.
