Why can’t we have honest elections?

Posted on

So we now know that Trump's election campaign manager is accused of pretty serious fraud.

And we know that here are allegations of pretty serious fraud in Vote Leave in the UK that means the UK's future could have been changed as a result of a fraudulent election.

And we know that the Tories seemed to commit electoral fraud in 2015.

But the election results are not challenged. And so what looks like fraud seems to pay.

What is happening?

Does democracy count for nothing now?

Why is the world so indifferent to this?

I greatly appreciate what Jolyon Maugham is doing. But why has he had to do it? Why can't we have fair elections? Or have the left just given up and accepted the right can do whatever they like?
