UK: Electoral fraud means voters will now have to show passports in certain areas of the UK

(UK) Over the past few years, the British penchant for fair play has been abused by certain immigrant communities when it comes to voting. After numerous allegations of voter fraud where the racist canard was always brought out in which to silence any detractors by character assassination, the British government acted after the 2014 Mayoral election for the rotten London Borough Council of Tower Hamlets where the Bangladeshi born Lutfur Rahman won. The subsequent investigation found Rahman guilty of election fraud, of using "corrupt and illegal practices" by the use of grants which had been given to Bangladeshi or Muslim groups in return for support. As a result, he was forced to step down as the mayor of Tower Hamlets in east London and banned from ever again holding political office.

The re-election in 2015 saw hundreds of police stationed outside polling stations in Tower Hamlets so as to prevent any repeat of electoral fraud. The problem is, the Tower Hamlets incident wasn't a one off, and the investigation came out with a number of findings with the main one being:
Authorities are turning a blind eye to electoral corruption in the UK because of a desire for political correctness.
So, today the UK government has revealed that in the future, voters will have to bring along some form of ID in which to combat fraud. This will be trialled during the 2018 local elections in the following areas with high Muslim populations: Blackburn with Darwen, Bradford, Bristol, Burnley, Calderdale, Coventry, Derby, Hyndburn, Kirklees, Luton, Oldham, Pendle, Peterborough, Slough, Tower Hamlets, Walsall, and Woking.

As could be only expected the socialist labour party are now opining that asking for voter ID will disfranchise those who can't afford ID of any sort.
