Postal voting scandal Samizdata update

Postal voting scandal update by Samizdata.net, apparently the vote factory set up by Labour party members, using legislation pushed through by the Labour party, to make sure it got some Labour party members elected to the council can all be sloved by the magic of ID cards. Right, sure Mr Blunket, and who is going to check the ID cards? are they going to have to send them off with the postal ballot? And what about the massive possibilities of fraud opened up by the ID card itself? Or as Samizdat puts it:
"So, let's get this right. The government, having created a system ripe for fraud and abuse, has one of its former members suggest that it be dealt with creating a system ripe for fraud and abuse."
