Peterborough: Police Investigaing Man Who Claims He Burned Brexit Party Votes

via Politicalite:

A Peterborough man, believed to be a Labour party activist living in Peterborough caused a a ripple of excitement on Twitter when he tweted a claim that he ‘burned’ postal votes that would have helped The Brexit Party’s Candidate Mike Greene WIN the by-election. His claim is as yet unconfirmed and given that he claims to be a member of the Jew – hating Labour Party, he could simply be a sad, iadequate attention seeker with mental health issues.

Having said that, Cambridgeshire Police are taking the claim seriously and are now investigating the claim. Alan Roddis made his outrageous claim in a closed group called ‘Peterborough Politics’ – a popular local discussion forum on Facebook that Politicalite has previously exposed as promoting extreme left and anti-semitic ideologies, including many made by local Labour activists.

Commenting on the election Roddis said, “She [Lisa Forbes] got nominated (elected) because 3 people including me burned over a [sic] 1000 votes for TBP [The Brexit Party], and laughed while doing it.” Roddis, whose brother – also active in the predominantly Labour-leaning, Hamas-supporting group – is understood to be a supporter of Lisa Forbes.

Once the comment was leaked a social media shitstorm erupted as people posted demands an immediate investigation, but as of yet, the originator of the claim has refused to answer any follow-up questions.

One concerned voter, who took to a Vote Leave online group chat, asked its admin if anyone from The Brexit Party was taking action to investigate Roddis’ claim, to which they confirmed that they indeed had.
