It is claimed that there has been financial doping by the Tories in key wards. Keeping expenditure off the books. Run by the dimwit Grant Shapps - he who lied to parliament about income from none declared jobs (he couldn't remember doing only a few years earlier).
All highly illegal as you can imagine as we take our democracy incredibly seriously in this country. More laughably and to nobodies suprise, Shapps is refusing access to the accounts of the election funds. I smell the shredder working overtime.
No guilt there then. By the time plod gets around to investigating, everything will have moved on. There will be nothing to see as per usual.

The Conservatives are the party for people with a criminal disposition. Always have been, always will be. It's why the genuinely honest people never vote for them.

Something I read (sorry, can't recall where) said that 29 constituencies have so far been identified where this has happened, and that by-elections could have to be held as a result. If it goes that far, the Tory majority could be in danger.
However, I suspect it will all be brushed off as a clerical error and that very little more will happen. Even if there's a prosecution, some apparatchik will be a scapegoat and they will probably get a bit of community service.

Such a shame that this issue will more than likely never be given the full attention it deserves (by the electorate as much as the 'meedya'). Channel 4 seems like the only broadcaster really trying to expose what has been going on. Welcome to the end of any semblance of a healthy democracy everyone!

And the government is trying to get rid of channel 4.I wonder why?

Fairness. Can you please explain or point us to an article that lays out the facts that any of the parties you mentioned were involved in the scale of financial electoral fraud that the Tories have been accused of? As far as I know, there have been several allegations of both ballot rigging & small scale financial mispractice around the UK but nothing on the industrial scale the Conservatives have been accused of. Shipping people across the country (or even from the USA - wow!), putting them up in hotels, adverts, parties, the distribution of extra leaflets/pamphlets and other such things all cost money. Quite a bit of cash as you can imagine, all illegally kept of the books of the constituancies tightly regulated election spend.
Yup Fairness, that's fair play and the British way. I only guess you're a Conservative, so that kind of thing is okay then isn't it?
