Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.

The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in peoples' names right up to the 10pm deadline using the information held in the IDOX database -based on lists that tell you who did not vote in previous elections and election voting history held by IDOX for what appears to be moving fast for all of the UK?

Is this why the leader of the Scottish Tory party, Ruth Davidson, declared she knew the postal vote results before the election count started?

In May 2015 an article "IDOX Elections Delivering Modern Democracy" said "Despite concerns over abuse of the system and fraud, the Electoral Commission maintains that there is no evidence of widespread and systematic abuse and that it would not be ‘proportionate’ to scrap postal voting"

Despite a police investigation into allegations of postal vote tampering in the Scottish referendum, the police did not hand over their report to prosecutors until September 2015, ensuring the General Election was allowed to go ahead under IDOX control

On 16th September 2015 the Scotsman reported the police had handed over their report related to their inquiry into how Ruth Davidson and others knew the postal vote result before the votes had been counted revealing, "A Crown Office spokesperson said: “The Crown Office has received information regarding the investigation carried out by Police Scotland and will consider if further action is necessary."

Just two weeks later, on the 30th September 2015, the Daily Record reported "No-one will face prosecution over allegations that electoral secrecy laws were broken by pro-union campaigners counting postal votes ahead of last year’s independence referendum. The Crown Office has confirmed that the issue is “now closed”

At the general election half an hour before polls closed I was told that 20% of the votes were “postal votes” for my polling station – my initial reaction there is no way 20% of people voted by post – so how come the number is so high”

The article "IDOX Elections Delivering Modern Democracy" gives an explanation of how the new "modern privatisation of the electoral process" worked at the general election.

"Countdown to the election

For those of us new to the Elections team, work started the week beginning 27 April, almost two weeks before polling day. From the Monday, we started to arrive on-site to set up the system and meet the temporary staff employed to open and scan the PVS and ballot papers. The scale of this operation varied from one local authority to another: some of the smaller ones had 8,000 voting packs to get through before election day whereas sites like Glasgow (with an anticipated 66,000 packs) would sometimes process more than that in one day.Polling day.

On the actual day of the election, work in Glasgow began at 6 pm. This was due to the fact that postal votes can legally be handed into polling stations until 10 pm – we had a long night of verifying votes ahead of us. In Glasgow, we had moved from the council building to the Emirates Arena for the count, where our work continued as media outlets from across the country prepared to report the events of the night ahead.


Of course, we didn’t let the pressure get to us and the last of the postal votes were safely delivered to the council to go forward with the overall count around midnight. While the days were sometimes long, I thoroughly enjoyed my ‘sabbatical’ from the Idox Information Service team and the chance to be involved in the delivery of something as important as democracy: roll on the Scottish Parliament elections in 2016!  By Stacey Dingwall, I do"

Last-minute whistleblowers come forward to accuse Tories of election expenses fraud.


Two members of a Conservative campaigning “hit squad” in the 2015 election have come forward to explain how the party “cheated” by not properly declaring its election spending.
The Conservative Party has repeatedly said spending on the Battlebus 2015 campaign tour, which sent a fleet of coaches into 29 marginal seats, should have been declared nationally not locally.

But two Tory whistleblowers have said the party is “lying” about what happened on the Battlebus – and is now engaged in a “cover-up”.


They have come forward as the police investigation into possible election fraud by Conservative candidates reaches its final few weeks.

Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile.

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.



A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
