Electoral fraud scandal hits all major parties, evidence shows

No doubt many of you (unlike Michael Portillo and Alan Johnson) will have heard extensively about the Conservatives’ electoral fraud scandal. If not, there is a good summary here by Medium blogger Greg Dash, and an extensive number of articles are available via Channel 4′s website.

However, unearthing by the right-wing political blogger Paul Staines (Guido Fawkes) has shown similar issues arising within Labour and the Liberal Democrats too.

As Channel 4 journalist Jon Snow says, this is the first time in British political history that the Electoral Commission has started legal proceedings against any political party. Alan Johnson may joke to Andrew Neil about re-running the general elections, but as Neil says: “this has the potential to become a scandal”. Especially considering this is no longer a Tory-only issue.
