- More (potential) postal vote fraud in Birmingham in the run-up to next week's local elections. Only this time it's the Lib Dems, not Labour... Nice one, guys.
And herein lies the reason why local elections should be voted for on local, not national issues. The Lib Dems may be a valid protest vote at a General Election - but locally they've got just as much potential for corruption as the rest. It varies from council to council, ward to ward - and can be bloody complicated to work out even if you live there, let alone if you don't. Expecially at local elections where votes can actually carry some weight, think carefully where you mark your "x" - because put it in the wrong box and you could live to regret it.
