This is not a political blog, and I never intend it to be, but reading this piece in today's Times just now made me choke. Key points:

"An investigation by The Times has discovered that Labour's General Secretary is urging activists to set up bogus ballot boxes today outside traditional polling stations in all-postal voting areas.

A document issued by Matt Carter, which has been seen by The Times, suggests that the activists should wear red rosettes to maximise the number of last-minute Labour votes collected in the bogus boxes, and to deter supporters of other parties from handing over completed voting slips."

"A Labour MP has also told The Times that election cheats are collecting postal votes and changing the choice of candidates using Tipp-Ex correction fluid."

Oh God. I feel sick.
