First we have an irresponsible MP who has been tweeting postal vote results and gives the excuse that she was "over-excited." Kerry McCarthy is defending Bristol East. She was anointed as labour's 'Twitter Tzar' - someone who would encourage labour support through the social media Twitter.
I understand all PPCs are given the electoral rules and Ms McCarthy has no excuse. She knows she committed a crime because she has deleted the offending tweet. Surely the people of Bristol East will not vote for a woman who is so ignorant of electoral law. In case you are unaware Ms McCarthy is a qualified solicitor.
That's not all. Police have been alerted to postal vote fraud claims in London. They are 'assessing' 28 allegations but the result of their inquiries will not be known until after the election. No surprises there then and let's not kid ourselves - the practice will be spread throughout the UK in one way or another.
In Tower Hamlets alone the London Standard found some homes where up to 10 so-called 'ghost voters' have been registered on the electoral roll without the knowledge or consent of the people who live there. The report isn't talking about the odd property being targeted in this way but perhaps hundreds.
Canvassers have also been knocking on doors asking those who answered to sign forms. They are targeting homes where English is the second language.
There has been an upsurge in downloads on the postal voting website which some insist is due to Nick Clegg's sudden popularity. I'm a cynic.
I've said before that the postal voting system is wide open to fraud. We must stop postal voting fraud and the only way I see that happening is for postal votes to only be available to those who can prove they will be out of the country on election day, who are receiving disability benefit/DLA or who have some other good reason not to attend their local polling station.
Earlier today I had an email from a friend in England. She said she had had a canvasser at her door asking her to complete the form and they would 'do her the favour' of posting it on her behalf. I shan't disclose the party involved.
An independent Scotland should curtail the use of postal votes. We all have a duty to vote and the majority of the population have no problem making their way to a polling station to do so. I know every party offers a 'chauffeur' service for those who have difficulty for any reason.
Labour introduced this postal vote culture but it's one which should be halted now. It's too open to fraud. The police refusing to take immediate action also concerns me.
Do you really want a country, in another couple of generation's time, governed on the results of postal votes?
