And there's more: (Yorkshire Post) "One of Yorkshire's best known Labour members has launched a ferocious attack on the party and Gordon Brown"... "Alice Mahon, a Halifax MP for 18 years and a party member for more than 50 years, has resigned her membership of the party saying she can no longer stomach how it operates". h/t Guido.
"...some areas where the votes were being counted and collated were obscured from view. ...[The Electoral Commission] also voiced concern over aspects of the arrangements for postal voting."
Update 7pm (BST) In Message 230 on Guidos' blogpost Susan Stevens says - regarding another reason for Alice Mahon's resigning her party membership - "the method of selection of the Calder Valley Labour candidate last week. This is Cherie Blair’s step-mum, Steph Booth, who won with a majority from a large number of postal votes against another woman who had a majority of those present at the meeting." My emphasis.
The pattern is clear...any investigative journalists up to it?
Update 9pm (BST) Well it shouldn't be difficult to find something: The Halifax Courier says: "She was chosen in favour of the Mayor of Hebden Royd, Sue Press, at a packed meeting of Party members in Mytholmroyd Bowling Club last night." Clearly giving the impression that the packed meeting voted for Booth, except that they didn't: the Yorkshire Post tells us that Mrs Booth won by an almost 2-1 majority, 95-52 but of the 95 cast for Booth 73 were postal votes and for Susan Press only 17 were postal votes. h/t John BM
