121. The View from the Bridge [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... of 14 October, 'Fears of more US electoral chaos after flaws are discovered in ballot computers' by Andrew Gumbel (5 ) was the major media tip of an enormous iceberg, most of the rest of which is on the Web. The headline story is simple: the Republicans are preparing to steal the next presidential election in the computerised voting machines that are being introduced. They won't need all that crude gerrymandering and those partisan Supreme Court judges in future. And the Democrats are so afraid of the media that they are going to let them do it. The British system of bits of paper collected and counted in public may be cumbersome but it makes it very hard to ...

122. Demos - fashionable ideas and the rule of the few [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... the post-9 /11 world between neo-liberal imperialism and national defence of peoples against global forces of all types. If there is one thing the Marxists of the New Right fear it is the masses, which they assume to be stupid proto-populists of the right. Thus they adopt the methods of Berlusconi to manage the vote instead of adopting the slower but much surer process of building a complex bottom-up culture of civil society built on locality, the civic centre, the trades union and on voluntarism in a mixed and entrepreneurial economy. These are the true guarantors of liberal values, property and the rule of law and for consent to redistribution and the ...

First Pick Your Voters Some strong contenders here. But first out of the hat is the Labour Party for performance during the all-postal voting experiments that were tried across the country in the May local council elections. All-postal may have increased turnout to 60 per cent, but it is a fixer's paradise. Lord Greaves (Lib Dem) told the Upper Chamber that some applications for postal votes in his old stamping ground of Pendle, Lancashire, had resulted in 982 ...

124. Feedback [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... of those were Tory-Labour - the rest were either Liberal-held, or three-way splits, when the Liberals had been keeping Labour out of office since 1923); or that the Tories' 154 net gains in 1924 came from Labour (two thirds were from the Liberals); or that the increase in the Tory vote came from former Labour voters. Labour's numerical vote increased by 24%: if Zinoviev was meant to reduce the Labour vote, it was a total failure. Labour's vote was up on 1923 in almost every seat it contested, even in the ones it lost. As in that other mythical election, 1979, the one where millions ...

... to work closely with pro-Europeans to rebut the anti-EU campaign in the press. The second stage witnessed the targeting of Conservative MPs by the parliamentary Conservative Group in Europe and party whips, plus the negotiation of a secret alliance with the 68-strong pro-European wing of the Parliamentary Labour Party to ensure a successful parliamentary vote. (10) Conservative Associations were targeted by Conservative Central Office, the Conservative Research Department and the Conservative Political Centre through constituency chairs, party agents and officers. The third stage of the campaign was a national one aimed at influencing the wider media. Geoffrey Tucker, a public relations expert who had worked for the Conservative Party, ...

Fixing the convention The only solution the Democratic party machine could come up with was to fix the Convention. On the eve of the Convention, Kefauver could still only be assured of less than half of the 500 votes from the Democratic states he had swept in the primaries. Ironically, Kefauver rejected an offer from the Texas Democrats led by Governor Shivers and Lyndon Johnson, with their financial backers, Carlos Marcello and Benny Binyon, a Texas/Las Vegas cowboy-gangster, to swing Texas his way. The price would have been a deal with ...

127. The Party of Business and the B usiness of Parties [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... this subterfuge unnecessary. Such robustness would mean a return to the grass roots approach; a less capital intensive appeal to the electorate. It would mean a huge reduction in general election spend; much less, or better still, no billboard advertising, for example. The value of political advertising is debatable. The Conservatives didn't earn any extra votes in 1997 with their billboard advertising, they merely reminded voters what tossers they were. We have the freedom to set these rules, a freedom which is not available in the United States, since they have a constitutional right to free speech and giving money is an expression of free speech, it seems. We should consider how to ...

... pieces in Lobster 43 and this issue in 'Updates' on election fraud are timely. In The Guardian, 28 September 2002, 'Rigging doubts over postal ballots' showed that the increased use of postal ballots simply increases the opportunity for election fraud. And in The Guardian 17 October 2002 Stuart Millar began a piece: 'A world expert in electronic voting will today warn the government that trusting computers with the democratic process is a recipe for fraud and error. ' As this is obvious to anyone who has used a computer or worked on an election campaign, why is the government pursuing this? Last | Contents | Next ...

129. How to Fix an Election [Lobster #43 (Summer 2002)]
... tin-pot dictator-ships. Such as Zimbabwe. Wrong. Elections everywhere are open to massive abuse, even in the supposedly 'free West'. The results can be gerry-mandered in a dozen different ways; and enshrined as the will of the people. The word 'gerrymander' is, itself, an historical echo of a vote-rigging exercise of many years ago: Elbridge Gerry, Massachusetts governor in the early 19th century, was accused of altering electoral boundaries in order to defeat his main rival. One congressman looked at the map, with its tortuously-redrawn borders and commented that they writhed like a salamander. Another cynic piped up: 'Gerrymander, rather ...

... it for 16 years. He writes 'as an Englishman who lives in Belgium and works for an international organisation representing a Dutch political party on the secretariat of the United Left Group in the European Parliament'. So this critical guide to the EU is an attempt to explain how the EU really works from the euro and CAP to qualified majority voting and foreign policy. It draws both on experience and on research from an impressively wide range of sources. McGiffen has produced what seems a balanced account of EU activities, one which will prove useful to both supporters and opponents of the federalist project in the coming euro referendum. But this descriptive even-handedness doesn't stop him having his ...
