A report shows that electoral fraud was allowed to take place in Muslim communities because of ‘political correctness’
Election fraud has been allowed to take place in Muslim communities because of “political correctness”, a major report finds as it calls for unprecedented reforms to the British voting system.
In a report commissioned by the Government, Sir Eric Pickles, the former Conservative Cabinet minister, warned that the authorities are in a “state of denial” and are “turning a blind eye” to election fraud.
It’s hardly surprising…we live in such a politically correct society these days if you were to for one-second question the actions of a minority group you are labelled as a far-right racist.
This reminds me of the Rotherham grooming gang scandal as police refused to intervene due to fears of being called ‘racist’.
He said that there is evidence of voter fraud “especially in communities of Pakistani and Bangladeshi background” but that the cases have been ignored because of “over-sensitivities about ethnicity and religion”.
Sir Eric warns that “challenging issues” over community cohesion should never be an “excuse” for failing to “uphold the rule of law and protect British liberties”.
Sir Eric’s report made a series of recommendations to Theresa May, the Prime Minister, and calls for people to require identification when they are voting and for police cordons around polling stations to prevent intimidation.
A piece of ID should be shown for all elections.
Furthermore, the government need to do much more to tackle electoral fraud through the postal vote system.
I suspect that the Labour party are against any investigation into electoral fraud by the Muslim communities in this country, seeing as the vast majority of them support the Labour party. I’d like to be proved wrong though.
Veteran BBC presenter, Jeremy Paxman, has hit back at the BBC over their political correctness ad old fashion license fee
Speaking to the Sunday Times, Paxo said that: “I think it’s completely antediluvian, a tax on one piece of electronic equipment. There’s no tax on that camera over there, or on that computer! It’s antediluvian.
“So some other mechanism has to be found – and it seems to me that if Amazon and Netflix have the ability to do that, it’s not beyond the BBC to do the same thing.
He went on to say that he believes “there is political correctness at the BBC”.
“I would have to say that the BBC is a parastatal organisation. They believe in the state. And not to recognise that there are those issues there is just silly.
“There is a way of looking at the world if you are part of the BBC and a different way if you work for a commercial organisation.”
He said the BBC represents a “metropolitan elite” way of looking at the world while praising Channel 4 for its “clarity”.
The 67-year-old continued: “The editorial structure [at Channel 4] is perfectly clear. Is it an economy of scale or a cultural thing? The BBC has a weakness for endless meetings with executives you’ve never heard of and don’t know what they do.
“Of course there is political correctness at the BBC. I would have to say that the BBC is a parastatal organisation. They believe in the state. And not to recognise that there are those issues there is just silly.”
The DUP has called for the government to abolish the TV licence once and for all.
Such move would save families £145 a year and cost the government £3 billion.
