In an appalling piece of election chicanery many voters wishing to vote for the Bad Party have been turned away from Polling Stations in the Badgertown Council Elections.
They had been enjoying, quite rightly, a few pints of Black Tom before exercising their democratic right to vote.
At closing time, they made their way to the polling station - only to be told they were too late and that they were intoxicated!
More enlightened election officers decided to have a lock-in, instead. This allowed voters to register their votes and carrying on drinking!
