It is only when you drill down into the voting figures, "something in the State of Denmark" stinks. How can it be that early Friday Morning, the 'Pauli Cereste Walnuts' of Peterborough Cllr Marco Cereste CON Stanground Central ( sadly no longer qualifies in our eyes as the Dear Leader ) can claim on BBC radio that he is still in charge and already has the proxy or support of two newly elected non Conservative councillors? So everything changes but it all remains the same. Just to ensure that no stones are left unturned, Julian Bray has dashed off an e-mail to the Electoral Returning Officer. You might like to keep a copy, and make your own enquiries.
It could well be that our fears are unfounded but until all avenues are fully investigated, and any potential suspects cleared, there will always be that nagging doubt. So if people are not physically casting their votes, then the logic follows the numbers must have been bulked up by postal and proxy votes.
The voting figures all round should have taken a huge hit, due to the violent weather we experienced during the times the Polling Stations were open, but compared year on year, it is as if the sun was shining all day on Thursday May 22nd... Indeed was 'Pauli Walnuts' sitting outside your polling station, sun reflector in place, topping up the tan?
Our email to the Electoral Returning Officer:
Dear Gillian Beasley,
Congratulations to your team on getting through a very interesting Election process. Do I take it that you will still be investigating any win, gain and/or hold that has a meaningful reliance on Postal and Proxy Voting?
I say this as the extreme weather we experienced during the process yesterday would indicate to a reasonable person that the number of votes cast must have contained an unusually high proportion of proxy and/or postal votes, to produce the polling numbers released so far, as there was little activity during the day at many polling stations.
Will you be publishing a full and detailed report on any investigation, examination of Police CCTV footage, testing of documents, and inter-alia any material factors that could have unlawfully influenced the outcome?
If there is any adverse outcome will the vote result announced be set aside pending any subsequent criminal process and Trial? And how quickly will a new election be set up, if so required?
Would you also investigate the claim by Cllr Marco Cereste clearly broadcast on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, earlier this morning that he is still in charge, and as of 7am this morning has the 'support' or proxy of two extra councillors to secure his continuing majority and on that basis an adjustment would be made to the Cabinet.
This is despite the fact that officially no overall control is the default position and I think it was Cllr Keith Sharp who told Paul Stainton in the same broadcast that no such arrangement could be in place as he had been at all the meetings.
Has Cllr Cereste lied, why would he make this clear assertion? No doubt the BBC can supply a full transcript or tape recording of the exchanges. Would you also order an investigation into the content of the recorded broadcast comments early this morning by Cllr Francis Fox UKIP Paston Ward (relating to alleged racist remarks which could in our considered view incite public order offences)
