No More Portillo Moments?

Bridget Prentice, the so-called Democracy Minister (she should query being there on 20% of the vote!) has said the traditional election night could come to an end because of new voting laws. What a thing to behold! No swingometer, no crazed viewpoints, no joshing with ministers, no....... All gone until the morning after!

The new laws mean election officials have to check signatures and dates of birth of postal voters - something they say cannot be done in one night. You can see it now can't you? We won't get the result for days!! People will start querying the signatures, all manner of disputes will arise!

Why can't they just say - Personation is a crime, so is fiddling the postal ballot. Online voting or in person only. Anyone caught in any monkey-business gets three months in a boot-camp.

That should fix it!
