Blair Opposes ID Cards (For Fraudsters)

When Blair is finally busted, it's going to take years for the Brits to rebuild their social capital. Here's why and how he's undermined the integrity of the once incorruptible Brit electoral system.

The "why" is that most immigrants vote for Blair's Labour party:
...it is thought that about 80 per cent of Asians who vote and 90 per cent of blacks vote Labour.
The "how" is that the Muslim immigrant community has imported it's
low trust values to the UK (my ellipsis):
A judge investigating vote-rigging in Birmingham's local elections has ruled there was widespread fraud and has ordered new elections.

Election Commissioner Richard Mawrey QC upheld allegations of postal fraud relating to six seats won by Labour in the ballot of 10 June last year.

The results have been declared void and the polls in two wards must be rerun.

"The system is wide open to fraud and any would-be political fraudster knows that," Judge Mawrey said.
Mr Mawrey had heard petitions lodged against six Labour councillors...Shafaq Ahmed, Shah Jahan...Ayaz Khan...Mohammed Islam, Muhammed Afzal and Mohammed Kazi.
So Brit election officers have asked Blair to help them combat fraud:

The Association of Electoral Administrators, which represents election officers throughout the country, called for all electors to be required to give their signature and date of birth when they registered to vote.

The details would then be checked against applications for postal votes and could also be used to check any individuals who aroused election officers' suspicions at polling booths.

You'd expect that a government that's forcing every Brit to carry an ID Card full of biometrics to prove themselves to state officials would be cool with this. Shockingly, it ain't so:
Bridget Prentice, the Electoral Administration Minister, said compulsory checks could deter people from registering to vote and reduce election turn-outs.
Yeah, looks like it would indeed cut the Muslim vote.
