    Clip of the chief political editor of BBC News, Laura Kuenssberg, committing a criminal offence on British TV earlier today by disclosing to viewers that, according to her sources, “the postal votes that are already in are looking pretty grim for Labour”. Whether what she says is even true or not is unsure – during this election campaign she already has a track record of parroting Tory disinformation without verifying

      If she has committed a criminal offence then why has she not been prosecuted? Because, she has not broken the law. You just claim she has.

      Laura Kuenssberg is the best political reporter in the business who works against a backdrop of psychical threats of violence and constant online bullying.
      So much so she needed a security guard to cover one party conference ( yes,you’ve guessed it – Labour )
      It is not against the law to report what the various campaigns are telling her.
      You’re an idiot.

        I’ll defer to the expertise of former British ambassador, Craig Murray on this one (backed up with a screenshot of the law in question):

        “Representation of the People Act 1983 Section 66. Clause 4(d)and clause 6 in particular.
        A serious criminal offence. Yet Dominic Raab, Laura Kuenssberg and other Tories can ignore the law with complete confidence.
        Impunity of the elite a sure sign of descent towards dictatorship.”

        Quote from his screenshot:
        “(4) Every persons attending the proceedings in connection with the issue of receipt of ballot papers for persons voting by post shall maintain secrecy and shall not: –
        (d) except for some purpose authorised by law, attempt to ascertain at the proceedings in connection with the receipt of ballot papers the candidate for whom any vote is given in any particular ballot paper or communicate any information with respect thereto obtained at those proceedings.”

        She knows she won’t face any criminal proceedings because she’s faithfully doing the bidding of the establishment.

          You’ve just proved my point you ignorant buffoon.
          Kuenssberg was reporting what the various campaigns have told her not what she physically saw herself when postal votes were being opened.
          Doh !

            “or communicate any information with respect thereto obtained at those proceedings”
            She’s communicating illegally obtained confidential information to the general public. Only a fool would try claim that that’s not a breach of the law.

      The story is of National importance, a huge blow has been delivered to Irelands Drug Kingpins. Cannabis with the Grand Total of 640 euro has been taken off the streets. And such a daring raid by the ERU . Take that Drug Lords. You’re washing machines are no longer safe.

      For anyone in the UK reading this today your choice is clear.
      Vote for a man who occasionally offends people in newspaper columns or one who deliberately sought out the friendship of men who like to blow up and kill innocent people.

        Vote for a man who habitually lies to the electorate and other politicians, has achieved absolutely nothing in the first 100 days and has no real plan beyond bluff and bluster or ANYONE else.

          …for anyone in England and Wales reading this today, you have clearly indicated your wish to leave the EU and only an outright win for Boris can ensure the implementation of your democratically expressed referendum vote…

            Thank you for all your concern (I live in England). I personally clearly indicated my wish to stay in the EU. However, I think that that ship has sailed, as who in the EU in their/your right mind would want the UK to keep hanging around indefinitely?

            I voted for neither the philandering pathological liar nor for the left wing nut job. I voted for the party whose leader gets less and less popular in the polls the more she is on TV (i.e. Lib Dem).

            Yes she really is a personality vacuum but you English people are now into Irish electoral territory- not who you like, just who you hate most.
