Electoral fraud: The Electoral Commission has highlighted a series of sixteen areas where it has particular concerns about electoral fraud. A number of police forces are setting up task forces to deal with the issue.
But astonishingly, the Express reports that in one of the at-risk areas, Derby, in my own East Midlands Region, the police say that stopping electoral fraud in the Brexit referendum “is not our responsibility”. Funny that. I always thought that preventing crime was a key police responsibility. But maybe I’m just old-fashioned.
