So Rochdale has become yet an another example of attempted vote-rigging - well what a surprise, not. Neither is it surprising that the BBC makes no mention of the ethnicity of those who are alleged to have committed these crimes - which wouldn't have anything to do with this general problem, would it?
I had to smile at the remark by Colin Lambert, Labour head of Rochdale Council:
"If they [the allegations] are proved to be true then they are serious enough to disrupt the whole process of democracy."
The poor sap obviously does not recognise that the whole process of democracy in this country is already well and truly disrupted. As for being brave, why should I, or anyone else, be brave just to maintain the existence of low-life politicians?
