May I ask why you and Northern Voices seem to automatically think the complaint regarding electoral fraud relates to either Milkstone and Deeplish ward or Central Rochdale ward?
Councillor Neil Emmott
Dear Councillor Emmott,
Have you perused the figures for Milkstone & Deeplish ward for the local elections of 2015? 77.7% for the winning candidate? Meanwhile, the other four candidates got just over 22%. With the greatest respect, doesn't that seem like a strange result statistically to you? One worthy of some examination? Such results are more commonly achieved historically in one party states.
