Email Luke at

Plymouth City Council presided over a series of shambles and mistakes in the 2017 General Election. Thanks to the mishandling of the election hundreds of people were denied their vote. This is not good enough.
To help the Electoral Commission I am calling for members of the public who had difficulty voting in the 2017 General Election to send me their experiences so I can share a bulk submission of views with the Commission. I know some people have already sent views directly to the Electoral Commission. In my discussion with the Electoral Commission I made it clear that I would be happy to co-ordinate responses. If you were caught up in the election shambles I want to make sure your voice is heard. Please send me your views. 
This week I met with the Electoral Commission to discuss what happened in Plymouth. I want a full, detailed and swift inquiry into the series of failures made by the Conservative-run Plymouth City Council. I want to know whether Tory cuts had an impact on the mistakes and who should be held accountable.
The series of mistakes did not impact on the final result but whether people wanted to vote Labour, Conservative or for one of the minor parties their vote should be counted. Missing the entire ward of Efford and Lipson from the final figures on polling night isn't good enough - especially when this was flagged by Labour Party volunteers on the night.
I'm pleased the Electoral Commission has appointed such a strong lead for the inquiry. At present I have no faith in the Conservative and UKIP-run council to run elections. I want to see people held responsible for the series of mistakes made in the 2017 General Election. The absence of leadership from councillors and officers has been very worrying. Trust needs to be restored to Plymouth's elections and that starts with a detailed and thorough inquiry.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

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 pe…

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.
