A Big Boy Took It And Ran Away in Kirkcaldy After the Glenrothes By Election

'Yesterday's report [into the disappearance of the marked register of the Glenrothes by-election} said it appeared to be the first time such documents had gone missing from a court. (Herald).

The report said: "The investigation has not found the missing records and is not able to determine precisely when and how the documents came to be lost.

"It concludes that a combination of human error and weaknesses or failures in management systems and work processes at the sheriff clerk's office in Kirkcaldy caused the loss."

The report said these included a failure to properly log the documents when they were received.

As the documents were stored in a basement to which outside contractors had access, it highlighted a failure to store the register in a more secure location.'

I think there should be more regulations to ensure elections cannot be fixed but i think all parties do it. Why do the tories do better in general elections the polls predict, and we all know cheats prosper if you do not watch the rules.

Don't worry. Rather stupidly Mr greenface has ensured that the royal mail won't be delivering any Labour postal voting papers this time round.

Fishy, or what?

Pass the whitewash when you've finished that bit.
