Not an isolated incident

It looks like the case of electoral fraud in Birmingham local body elections I blogged about last week was not an isolated incident. Another (UK) Labour councillor has just been sentenced to three and a half years in jail for an identical scheme to fraudulently fill out postal ballots.

This really does raise serious questions about the use of postal ballots in the upcoming British general election - questions that the LibDems, at least, want investigated.
