Are Common Purpose members behind EU Referendum Fraud?

By now most of you will have seen the fraudulent and corrupt postal ballot papers, with a clear visual instruction to vote 'Remain'. I reproduce below the corrupt version, now known to have been issued by several councils, and the neutral version, which I myself received from the London borough in which I am registered to vote.

The corrupt ballot paper pointing to 'Remain'

The authentic, neutral ballot paper

Firstly, this is not just a random error. If it were random, there would be a more ambiguous and mixed placement of the hand and pen. Secondly, it is highly unlikely that politicians - local councillors or party officials - were behind this. Politicians are excluded from electoral processes, which are in practice managed by local council officers. Up until now, all parties have trusted council officials to conduct elections freely and fairly. 

Thirdly, the councils where this attempted election fraud is now know to have taken place are also councils suspected of harbouring significant numbers of Common Purpose members amongst their permanent officials.

We need evidence, of course, before we can be sure, but not only should there be a full police enquiry but all those officials engaged in the production of election material must be vetted for Common Purpose membership and any evidence of a conspiracy between them secured.

It is weird how things like this affect dreaming...

Last night I dreamt that the ballot paper had 'remain' in bold and 'leave' in a smaller font.

Or could it be?

We know that the remainians are corrupt, criminal and perverted for preferring fascism.... So I s'pose it is not beyond the realms.

I must admit I had thought the CP'ers had gone awfully quiet during the referendum debate. So like you Radders, I suspect they are secretly working in the background to influence the outcome of the vote.

I won't hold my breath in the hope of seeing any real action taken on this matter. After all it is very apparent now how the "Establishment" want us to vote.

Or at least how we should vote.

I also suspect that our politcal elite will have realized how close the result will be. So I am sure there will be some doctoring of the vote to get a more desireable/convincing outcome. If it is at least 60/40 for "In" or a bigger margin, it will be a very dodgy/doctored result in my eyes.

It is beyond sad that our until-recently uncorruptible electoral system has been reduced to banana republic levels of fraudulence.

As with so many things, the rot started with Blair - opening up the postal vote system, which was formerly a limited exceptional option, to everyone and his granny (and his four wives, and their twenty-seven offspring, and all their lodgers), as long as it seemed likely they'd vote Labour. See under Tower Hamlets, and any number of inner suburbs of Birmingham.

But this latest example is so outrageous as to be barely believable, even by modern British standards.

If heads don't roll for this, we can give up on our democracy completely.

Of course, it seems likely that we're about to vote to give it up officially in any case.

Equally worrying is that these same council officials will be tasked with counting the vote. What chance an honest result?

Guido Fawkes has just put this up:


Multiple reports are emerging that EU citizens have been sent polling cards despite not having a vote in the referendum. Jakub Pawlowski, a Polish citizen living in Kingston, Surrey, tells Guido:

“I have been living in UK since 2006 but never applied for British citizenship. I recently bought a house and in December 2015, right after completion, filled the form to get registered on electoral roll. I have selected there that I’m a Polish citizen. I could therefore vote in London mayoral elections this month, however recently I got a polling card for the upcoming referendum on EU membership.”

Non-British EU citizens do not have a vote in the referendum..

Kingston council told Jakub that he was erroneously in their database as a British citizen. But this appears to be a widespread problem

To those unfamiliar with it the motto of Common Purpose is 'leading beyond authority'. This is another example of how the apparatchiki are abusing the authority we give them. Guaranteed there will be more.

Vote Leave for a saner world.

And then the emerging story that polling cards are being sent out to EU citizens who are on the voter's roll... like *they* are going to vote for Brexit!

Ah, Woodsy ... thank you. If we know who's responsible for counting, there must be a way to supervise them. --- After all, we must remind ourselves that they work for us: not the other way around. We must point that out to them, should they screech and strut about insult to their dignity.

I wouldn't call the police to investigate.

it will be like a Hollywood action film. When the good cop finds out there is a corrupt cop on the force. So he tells his boss. And the boss says 'I will deal with it."
But the boss is the head of the corruption ring.

Its going to be that sort of thing, isn't it?

I read that the TV companies aren't going to have exit poll results.

If exit polls pointed to leave but the final result said remain then of course questions would be asked.

Not reporting exit polls means they can stuff the ballot boxes to their hearts content.

This insidious organisation will be above investigation. Too many of its former students will be embedded within our public sector .... including, no doubt, the police, CPS and Judiciary.

They've been caught out this time. But most of the time they aren't.

My worry is that mine has still not arrived.

I got a card a week or so back so I'm in the system, so where is the ballot paper...?
