What a farce. people not being allowed to vote because there are not enough ballot papers? is the point not that everyone in the country gets one? if they dont then what else are they doing wrong? if they just counted the blank ones wrong then who is to say that they counted the filled in ones properly?
and as for the closing at ten. this needs to change.
infact, we should scrap this one and do the vote again next week.
the metro this morning had an excellent quote from a random punter – “British troops are dying in Afghanistan to give Afghanis the vote.” yes. while we are employing the tactics of mugabe in zimbabwe to stop people voting.
also, voting in pencil? so someone can change it? next time im taking a permanent marker.
dizzee rascal for prezident, innit.
