now now, no need to be a sore loser... this is a democracy and just because things don't go your way, doesn't mean you should throw wild accusations like this.

Well if this really is a 'Democracy' I should be able to question things without being called a sore loser.

I did not say the election was rigged. I wanted others opinions.

You should be able to accept that in democracy, the other guy sometimes wins. Electoral regulation is intense, there is no way in hell it was 'rigged'.

Just to clarify I do NOT support UKIP, I think they are full of racists. But I'm just shocked how many votes the Tories got.

Just to clarify something, UKIP is not racist party.

Why are you shocked?

Nearly 4 million people have voted for UKIP. I doubt they are all racists!

I do not think it was rigged.

It was certainly "rigged" in the sense that the entire system of voting is designed to keep the larger parties in total power.

just as well the conspiracy theorists were all having a circle jerk in their mum's basements rather than emerge blinking into the daylight and stumbling down to the polling station

I don't think it's unreasonable to ask the question. Lots of people wonder about it.

There have been many past allegations of voter fraud (especially surrounding postal voting) in particular constituencies. There's been a long history of it in Northern Ireland and lots of controversy about it in inner city areas of England with high ethnic minority populations.

The issue of government-level interference in the process is generally considered to be a non-runner, but some people have investigated allegations in this area. The election before Tony Blair took power, when John Major was returned to office against all expectations, was a particular focus of enquiry as it seemed he was very certain about being returned in an odd way. Some people accused the authorities of widescale rigging, but the allegations were never properly investigated.

Can't believe Cambridge fell for Labour's lies. Lost an amazing MP whose boots Daniel whats-his-face can never even dream of filling.

Simultaneously gutted for, and angered by, Cambridge. :mad:

EDIT: obviously it wasn't rigged.
