    Record rise in postal vote applications

    According to this report, from the Guardian today, the number of people applying for postal ballots has increased dramatically. The system, according to some experts is "an open invitation to fraud". Indeed, there have been numerous examples recently of postal ballot fraud cases in British courts. If Blair's New Labour lot do rather better than expected in the upcoming general election, then those postal votes should be examined thoroughly. Opposition parties should ensure that voters know all about the cases which police are investigating around the country:

    A survey by the Guardian of 55 councils covering 135 constituencies reveals applications to vote by post have risen in all cases, tripling in some places, particularly in inner cities. The increase comes as demand grows for urgent changes in the postal-voting system, last week labelled by a judge as "an open invitation to fraud". There is an ongoing court case, and police are investigating fraud in six areas of the country.
