you have followed events in Tower Hamlets or some of our university towns you
will know that voter fraud has become a problem that should be tackled, but how?
Conservative Councillor Philip Read has circulated a view that would disenfranchise many.
My 97 year old aunt has become a non-person because her birth certificate cannot be found - she was born in 1920 in Rangoon - and cannot establish residency because she has been away from home for three months. She is therefore unable to provide the three items of ID required for a Blue Badge and the Carers’ Allowance.
Philip Read would deprive her of her vote too.
