Myself and friends have known for over the past 10/12 years now that the elections are fixed .
Why when people go to vote do they still use the pencil provided in the booths???????? where the vote you cast can be erased???
Any small party should insist on putting their own seals on the vote box ,any number of cast votes have been known to be destroyed if they were from an unwanted party /candidate.
People/the population have no idea of the skull duggery that goes on at voting time
be warned next time you cast a vote ,mark it in biro,and if standing for a small party insist on sealing the box yourself.
The Councils usually keep the boxes of leaflets in a locked room overnight, to count the next day.
So it’s totally honest, I think?
