Re: Hold on!
Yet according to Transparency International, who investigate this sort of corruption, the UK is one of the world's least corrupt countries (11th place out of 180, in the top 5 in the EU), ahead of France, Ireland, the USA, etc.
the use of numbered ballots so the government can look up how everyone voted
They are sealed, and destroyed after a year. Any systematic abuse like that would be very obvious, and known.
Nobody cares how those "results" are obtained, as the last "election" clearly demonstrated.
Sour grapes because it didn't go the way you wanted?
We still have not found an answer to the mystery of the massive influx of postal votes (twice as many in the last "election" as in previous ones)
A lot of previously-uninterested expat citizens in the EU voting because of Brexit?
how people in the government or the BBC already knew the outcome of postal votes before the election was held.
Representatives of all the parties are present at the opening of the postal votes, as observers, that's part of the need to have a fair count. It seems that some of them foolishly commented to the BBC that the results were "grim for Labour". They shouldn't have done so, and the BBC certainly shouldn't have reported it.
