This morning's Sunday Times is carrying allegations about electoral postal fraud on scale which is befitting the BNP last year. According to the Sunday Times, the leader of Leeds City Council, Keith Wakefield, has been advising his canvassers and student activists to help people fill out their postal ballots, take them for people, and only post them if they have voted Labour.
A former parliamentary aide and Labour whip, Graham Hyde, was also secretly filmed telling people not to "get caught with [postal ballots] on you. We are not supposed to collect them." West Yorkshire Police are now investigating the allegations.
It's certainly telling of the desperation that now exists amongst the wider Labour Party as they face a routing next Thursday. To openly flout the rules by taking postal ballots is one thing, to advise people to remove the votes for other parties is outrageous.
