How many committee-years might it take to get THAT through honourable Westminster?
How many people realise that an amending bill was tabled to strengthen the REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE ACT, but that it died when Parliament was prorogued for the 2010 election? "Oh dear - what a pity - how sad". It extended section 115 (undue influence - CORRUPT PRACTICE) to "deliberately misleading the electorate as to the reasons for voting for that candidate". Remember the Liar Flyer? It said: "The Conservatives must win HERE (i.e. where my letter box is) to stop another 5 years of Gordon Brown." It was manifestly a lie, but the CONSERVATIVE PARTY is outside any law.
