At least some in the Lords are still in touch with reality. Having defeated government plans to extend all-postal voting trials to the North West, Yorkshire and the Humber, perhaps we can now look forward to a more serious debate regarding the future of voting. Postal voting is far to susceptible to fraud and is definitely not a step forward, but rather a sideways move at best. With the progress made in technology, we should be able to come up with a better solution. And while we're on the subject, anyone know what happened to the Jenkins Report on Electoral Reform? Yup, yet another unfilled New Labour promise, neglected and gathering dust since 1997.
