Still haven’t decided whether to vote in these or not and no polling card has been sent. I phoned the council and they say ‘they’re being processed’ and will be out in the next few days.
I wonder if they know the EUsceptics and send those ones last – it has crossed the mind. Anyway, this is our lot:
Now, in the order they appear on the form, these are the options good people could vote for:
There is no Anne-Marie party on that form. Sandwiched between TBP and UKIP is UK European Union Party and I wonder how many people will be waylaid by the name similar to UKIP?
The English Democrats I know not a lot about – I remember them vaguely from Witanagemot days and there was something Toque did not like about them. Must check them out.
Now, Tommy Robinson is listed under that name and I wonder if it is actually him but look how he’s listed by the BBC:
Frankly, that is wicked of the Electoral Commission as they must be aware that the uneducated may well vote as if that is a ticket and the guy above TR is most certainly not of the same politics.
On the form as our council supplies it, TR is listed alone at the end of the ticket – the far right – and as it should be listed alphabetically, then that is another move on their part and this Aslam would be first on the card.
There is a thing called the donkey vote and reverse donkey vote and those who vote straight down the ballot paper would elect this Aslam, while the reverse would see TR elected.
Also – if TBP had listed itself as Brexit Party, they’d be second on the voting card. All these shenanigans of the EC simply reinforce that which our reader Bill says about the pointlessness of registering and/or voting.
