i voted just now.

7 May

london 8am, 2015 thursday

i was struck by this thought as i waited my turn to be noted down. no one asked me for identification. all i need is the poll card sent to me. i asked what is there to stop someone else from taking my card and pretending to be me?  the person in charge there said because i have the poll card sent to my address.

i can see a way of someone jiggering the system, dont you? ah well, lets hope not, because in the marginal seats that might swing the vote.

i am in westminster and the city of london (it just goes to show how few people live in city of london and westminster to allow it to merge with westminster and only take one MP to represent us) and it is solidly conservative.

or rather, there are so few of us eligible to vote. the vast majority who live here are visitors, or rich people who buy as investments, or if they are do live here because they are rich they dont have the right to vote. or if they are british their second home is in london, their main voting residence is elsewhere in uk.

      thanks, it is a priviledge to vote, not many realise it or think of it like that. it is a flawed system, and can be abused,as is anything in this life, but it is still the best we got.

    Well I hope you did not vote for Henry II. That Beckett matter disgusted me. And that fat creep Henry VIII had Thomas Moore done in. Why would anyone kill the friend and smartest dude in the whole country?
