Comrade Corbyn to the fore - whither (or wither) the Labour Party?

You hand in your polling card, they check your name (ID etc...) then issue you with a voting slip by tearing it out of a book, in the book by the edge of the voting slip is a number, that's written next to your name in the electoral register.
Off you go to vote, turn the voting slip over and on the back is the same number they've just written next to your name so whatever you put on the voting slip is traceable back to you.
Hope that helps.

Edited to add:
Damn, beaten to it by Listy.

Thanks. Listy may be faster but you’ll always be in my heart ((((bill21))))

Never been asked for it. Only for my address, then they score my name off the list.
 
Well, I once got as far as Hamburg with my wife’s passport.

To be fair it was a very very early flight and I don’t think anyone was paying much attention. Least of all me.


By the time I hit the little Krautplod booths they’d had a coffee though.

Cue several hours filling forms in. I ended up with a Schengen (sp?) passport and a German bobby making jokes about me being German now and arresting me for not doing National Service.


Hahaha.


Mostly my fault I suppose.


Don’t get me wrong, ID for voting is fine by me; so long as

A. It’s not used to undermine the secrecy of the ballot and

B. It’s introduced sensibly, fairly and not precipitously.
 
I have only seen the numbers form Gosport but 116 turned up without ID and 72 returned later to vote. It didn't say if they investigated the 44 who did not return. As a trial I would think that they took account of these numbers/people to see how it went. It would be nice to see the data when it all comes in. At this point it does not seem that it had any effect on turnout.
With it being a trial, no doubt some would have forgotten and some would have been unaware. Those that didn't return probably just couldn't be bothered. It's possible that one or two may have had the intention of fraudulently voting and even one fraudulent vote is one too many.
 
Washes off. It's done (and circumvented) in SA.
I'm sure that should the Great Leader come to power the labour party will come up with a method to prevent it being circumvented, Something along the lines of a tattoo on the arm for instance.
 
I have a bash at them every time I vote about why isn't it a secret ballot and on several occasions I've had to explain to them how the vote can be traced back to me because most of them really believe its a secret.
My missus asked once. The polling geezer said that your vote is not secret. The numbered ballot papers are retained for some time and so is the register bearing the number of the ballot paper issued to each voter.

We were assured that an order from a High Court Judge was required to "unseal" the register or the ballot papers.

In practice I suspect that the register is stored in a cupboard somewhere at the council under less than secure conditions. I remember, during Gordon Brown's reign, there were accusations of significant fraud in one ward. As if by magic, the register and ballot papers disappeared, never to be found.

Perhaps of more concern is the fact that electoral law allows a unique bar code to be printed on the back of each ballot paper. What's that for? Ballots are counted by hand. They are generally not scanned into a computer.
 
Oh dear.


I’m on contract. I get a day rate. I’m in the very lucky position of getting the day rate regardless of actual attendance (up to a point) as I’m ‘on call’ for a proportion of my time.

Hence, another contract requiring 5 days of site work and 5 days of writing -at £500 a day- is doable on top.


If you ask a passing 4 year old to do the sums for you it will save you taking your socks off.
Whatever, Pinocchio...

I’ve got “A” level politics. I take this stuff seriously).
This A level politics that you have 'got'... presumably that'd be an 'Abbot Level' the same as the Abbot Level you have got in Making Stuff Up?

You don't speak ninety four dialects of German and own a Desert Eagle too do you?
 
I genuinely believe there could be some truth in this The youth deserting corbn once they realize he's a brexiteer...... . Students will desert Corbyn over Brexit betrayal
I live in hope that they'll abandon the dear leader because of his unaffordable and unfulfillable financial bribes, his hatred of the UK and its institutions, his treasonous views, his support for terrorists, his blatant anti-Semitism, his incompetence, his outdated Marxist-Leninist views, his choice of friends and lovers (the Abbott monster!) and the fact he is essentially Momentums (communists) sock puppet!

Sadly, the fact that the thicko student, shouty types haven't already noticed the blatantly obvious doesn't really give me much hope they'll notice his Brexit 'betrayal'!!

They're students. If he does something that affects them, they'll dump him. Be it 5p on the cost of a textbook or less chance of a summer loafing around Europe picking grapes.
