13th police force sends electoral fraud information to Crown Prosecution Service

“Another police force has sent a file on alleged Tory election fraud to prosecutors, it was revealed today.

The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed that it had received a file from West Midlands Police – the 13th police to do so in recent weeks.”


“… That is the sort of thing which can not only destroy a government in the eyes of voters, it can wreck the party’s long-term standing too. Any serious prediction about the future has to factor in the possibility that there will be an even more destructive swamping with sleaze stories of Theresa May’s government than happened to John Major. That not only helped bring down a Prime Minister, it helped ensure his party failed to win an overall majority at the next four general elections in a row.

The odds of this happening are certainly a good way short of certain. But they are also far higher than the zero which so many pieces of coverage about how high the Conservatives are riding imply. … “


But you can be almost certain that no action will be taken until after the county council elections …

  1. Its time to call – AGAIN – for the resignation of Alison Hernadez. Her position as Police & Crime Commissioner became untenable once the Electoral Commission published its report on how the Battle-Bus should have been accounted for locally.

    If she has any integrity, she would recognise that as PCC her own behaviour needs to be beyond reproach – and she would take the initiative and resign before her own case is passed to the DPP. Of course, if she had any integrity she would have withdrawn from the election a year ago – but she didn’t then, and I doubt she will now.
