In 2018, Tariq Mahmood, now 51, was convicted alongside fellow Labour members Maqbool Hussein and former Peterborough Mayor Mohammed Choudhary for forgery over a devious scheme to fabricate votes for the Peterborough City Council election of June 2004.
The four-month case that saw Mahmood (a Labour Party Secretary) sentenced to a 15-month porridge stint cost the taxpayer £850,000.
“They were able to get hold of postal votes and proxy votes which belonged to voters in the Central Ward,” Prosecuting QC Anthony Leonard said. “They arranged for postal votes and ballot papers to be sent not to the voter but to addresses which each defendant was connected”…"
imo Bruce is worse than Dimbeldum, she seems to believe it's the "Fiona Bruce Show", not Question Time - from the audience not FB.
Labour 10,484 votes
Brexit Party 9,801 votes
Tory Party 7,243 votes
Labour’s majority was 684. If just 10 per cent of the Tory voters could have been persuaded to vote Brexit Party, the latter would have won. Now in a by-election the government (not, in Mrs May’s case, what passes for it) won’t change. In a general election it is entirely possible that Tories would vote tactically to keep Corbyn and McDonnell out. Even more so now that the Marxist morons have decided on attacking the ability of parents to support their children.
Meanwhile the kitten-heeled zombie has suddenly gone all green and invented a lunatic target to be in place in 31 years’ time, presumably as an attempt to create a fluffy legacy, no doubt on the advice of her coterie of idiots who screwed up the Brexit negotiations and who think the Tories can take votes from the Greens.
Her ever disloyal Chancellor Philip Hammond had a look at his spreadsheets and came up with a cost of £1trillion (that’s a pound a second since the Neanderthals were wiped out) which he – rightly for once – reckons is unaffordable.
Presumably the magic money tree has died. Risibly, Hammond also said that he would not serve under a PM who wanted to deliver Brexit on 31 October. As if they were going to invite him – one of the many mysteries of the Maybot is why she never sacked him.
One really could not make this up. How on earth the world’s fifth largest economy and (hitherto) most stable political system could have got itself into a position that makes Kafka’s The Trial look like a better option is beyond belief. But it does rather make the Brexit Party’s argument that politics is broken look compelling."

Amusing image. However, we've had it already with Mr & Mr Obama - allegedly
Dopey logic of a legaliser it’s all very well talking about decriminalising it, but legal or not there are people out there making serious decisions when their brain is addled with this stuff. Several years ago it was discovered that the nine separate toilets in the House of Commons had traces of cocaine in them – and we wonder why politics is in the shoddy state it is.
‘Oh! You don’t want to legalise marijuana? Well, alcohol is worse, and it’s legal! What about that?’
‘Well,’ I ask them, ‘agreed that alcohol has worse effects. So, please tell me: how is making legal yet another substance with psychoactive and motor skill effects a net good for society?’
