The body which oversees elections is “not fit for purpose”, and the list of voters to be used at next May’s general election will contain at least 13m errors, a think tank has warned.
It seems that the Scottish Government was right when it proposed to set up a new Scottish Electoral Commission to oversee the independence referendum.
Many people, including myself, thought the decision to accept oversight by the existing EC was a minor concession made by Alex Salmond in order to secure the Edinburgh Agreement without humiliating Cameron too much. But it seems that it may not have been such a trivial thing after all.
