It's quite hilarious really: a Guardian article about election fraud throughout the UK lists all the places in which such fraud has been a serious problem. All those places have large Muslim populations. The problem is that The Guardian
, of course, never once mentions that fact. After all, facts and realities are secondary (or even dangerous) to International Socialists (or “progressives”). Obscure theories and righteous causes, on the other hand, are primary. And if facts get in the way – then such people simply reject them because the (self) righteous cause (underwritten by ideology) demands that they should do so.
Or, as Michele Foucault once put it: “[The Left is] obliged to stand behind… facts that are totally beyond credibility.”
So what, exactly, did The Guardian say? The following:
“Officers in Manchester, Bradford, London and Birmingham have begun inquiries after receiving complaints about 'ghost' voters, false statements by candidates and multiple attempts to vote by a single person.
“As well as Birmingham and Bradford, they include Blackburn with Darwen, Burnley Calderdale, Coventry, Derby, Hyndburn, Kirklees, Oldham, Pendle, Peterborough, Slough, Tower Hamlets, Walsall and Woking.
“West Yorkshire police, whose officers serve Bradford where former councillors have been imprisoned for electoral fraud, said they had received 21 allegations of electoral irregularities.
“Police across the UK have been asked to investigate more than 50 allegations of electoral fraud related to Thursday's elections in areas previously identified as vulnerable to vote-rigging, new figures show.”More broadly, the Electoral Commission has identified 16 “high risk” areas across the country: areas where there is a high-risk of electoral malpractice. Now take in the cities and towns cited by the Electoral Commission: e.g., Blackburn, Bradford, Oldham, Burnley, etc. (All cities and towns in the UK with large Muslim populations.)
The very mention of Bradford, for example, should give the game away. But, if anything, some of those other towns and boroughs cited have a higher proportion of (mainly Pakistani and Bangladeshi) Muslims than Bradford (e.g., Oldham, Tower Hamlets, etc.).
However, the usual suspect, Tower Hamlets, really clinches the deal here. It seems that this London fiefdom cannot keep itself out of trouble. It comes with the Muslim territory.
“Ukip have sought to exploit electoral fraud allegations in Oldham... by lampooning postal vote fraud in an election leaflet”.
