Identity Politics, Indeed

Electoral fraud is vanishingly rare in Britain, if it exists at all here.

Across all elections held in 2015, there were 51.4 million votes cast. There were only 26 allegations of in-person electoral fraud. There were no convictions. Not one.

Yet we became a different country on 3rd May this year, as people were denied their right to vote because they had failed to present their State papers. Guess which people.

Next up, naturally from The Guardian, we have already had a call for a variation on the literacy tests that the Southern United States used to employ in order to prevent blacks from voting.

Nor will it end there. Unless we stop this whole trend, right here and now. The voter ID "experiment" has failed. Far from being extended,  it must be discontinued forthwith.
