Labour cheats in election

close

Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

This should be much more damaging that it has been for the Labour party – in the run-up to a general election, it has emerged that members of the Labour party have been involved in rigging a local election – this should be huge. Talk about a corrupt political party – you can’t get much more corrupt than actually rigging the vote. Tag on to all this Alan Milburn’s comment that he’d do anything to win the election, and it becomes a very big story indeed for one of the tabloids.

If only this had come out a week earlier, when we weren’t all so concerned with the Pope and the Royals, it could have done considerable – perhaps irrepairable – damage to the Labour campaign. Of course, Michael Howard can’t throw this particular mud at the PM without being made to look stupid for trying to extrapolate one local council election to the whole Labour party. Anyway, we’ll see what happens tomorrow, but I don’t think many will have a free front-page to sling it with.
