    Lies are, by definition, with intent

    I did consider the sick... but I decided that people could keep pretending to be sick if they wanted. or if their mother or someone is suddenly dying... I thought that it would be best to leave the CPS and parliament to decide when its in the public interest.
    reduction in votes i'm not convinced on but if a party or campaign lie the damage is done...
    and there is such a disqualification? although the devolved institutions should provably see this extended to?
    That's ture. 'The sick' is very ambiguous and people might be able to manipulate that by faking headaches or other ailments.

    Indeed.
    Also barnetlad I would argue that if a lie has been found and likely to have affected the election result (why else would you tell a lie!!!) then there are 3 options:
    1) redo the election, but this risks more lies and an endless sting of elections.
    2) post humously changing the result in a way that accureatly reflects the effect on people.
    3) saying "oh well what's done is done"

    The second might not be as democratic, granted but it is more democratic than 3 and far less problematic then 2
