Tories get ‘multiple ballots’ for leader vote. Can they resist the urge to cheat?

This is absolutely priceless.

Bosses of both Jeremy Hunt’s and Boris Johnson’s campaign to become leader of the Conservative Party – and prime minister in the process – have begged party members who have received two ballot papers to use only one of them.

It seems that more than 1,000 people could have multiple forms, according to a BBC report citing a party source.

That’s a lot of temptation for the party whose members are known for doing anything to get what they want.

Cheating in a major vote?

I wouldn’t put it past them.

Better count all the papers once they’re in, Tories. Better get someone independent to do it for you. And that includes the spoiled ones.

4 Thoughts to “Tories get ‘multiple ballots’ for leader vote. Can they resist the urge to cheat?”

  1. Surely the fact they got two papers is proof of cheating anyway?!

  2. If this was a trade union or labour party they’d be up in arms. Pity they don’t follow their own rules and insist on voter id.

  3. Marie Gatfield

    it would be more apt to ask. Can’t they resist the urge to cheat?

  4. Cheating and fraud comes as second nature to Tories. They don’t see anything wrong in it – as evidenced by the convicted criminal who is standing for re-election at Brecon.
