Frankly, I don’t care, they’ve had time enough

Labour is whinging that drop-kicks who haven’t yet bothered, a week out from a general election, to comply with the law are being turned away:

Those eligible should be able to enrol and vote in one go at the advance booths.

The General Secretary for the Labour Party, Andrew Kirton, is concerned the mistakes will affect Labour disproportionately.  

“We know that we’ve got quite a few young people, who need to get on the roll, who like our policies and it would be a real shame if some of them were turned away.

“I’ve heard of multiple reports and I’m sure that’s only a fraction of what’s happening around the country, so we really hope this is cleared up as quickly as possible.”

Mr Kirton said Labour had raised the matter with the Electoral Commission.

Labour are only worried because it is their dropkick supporters who can’t seem to get their shit together.

In a statement, the Electoral Commission said it was important that all voters were able to have their say in this election.

“We want everyone to have a good experience at the voting place, and if that doesn’t happen, we would like to hear about it from voters,” said the statement.

The commission is encouraging anyone who has concerns to get in touch so it can investigate.

About 80,000 people placed their ballots on Friday, with nearly twice the number of votes cast so far compared to the same time in 2014.

It is so easy to register and yet these drop kicks have left it to the last minute.

Frankly, I don’t care if they can’t vote. They need to sort their miserable pathetic lives out first and get organised.
