Watching the BBC coverage of the election it seems that early reports are showing that many people have been unable to register their vote with reports of voters being turned away.
As if it wasn’t bad enough that voters are regularly disregarded with the less than democratic first past the post system.
Still its reassuring that the beeb have been able to draw on political heavy weights like Bruce Forsythe,Mariella Frostrup and Ester Rantzen
Apparently Nick Clegg has gone to apologise to voters in Sheffield about the voting problems, bit like the south African election some years ago,
