Police investigate Conservatives over call centre use during election

Post by sassy on Fri Aug 25, 2017 5:28 pm

Police are carrying out a "significant" investigation into claims the Conservatives may have acted illegally by using a call centre in Wales to directly contact voters during the General Election.

The Conservative Party has denied the allegations. A spokesman declined to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation.

South Wales Police said they were carrying out an investigation of "scale and significance".

Secret footage obtained by Channel 4 News suggested the Tories may have broken data protection and election laws by contracting the Blue Telecoms centre in Neath to directly contact voters in marginal seats.

According to the allegations, call centre workers were not just pushing out the message of the Conservative Party, but canvassing for individual candidates in the seats, which is against the law.

The call centre workers were allegedly phoning people who had asked not to be called. They targeted 10 marginal seats, according to Channel 4.

In a letter to the Labour MP for Caerphilly, Wayne David, South Wales Police said the investigation was being conducted by its economic crime unit, which had experience in dealing with "electoral integrity investigations".

It added: "The investigation is of sufficient scale and significance that South Wales Police are unable to offer any specific timescale.

"Rest assured that the officers within this department have the required specialist skills and expertise for this often challenging area of business and will, as with all investigations, act in a diligent and expeditious manner."

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) also confirmed it was investigating the case.

So, Court Case coming up for the Thurrock MP over the 2015 election, and now this.

Predictable, and as normal, boring as hell. If only your brain was as big as your ego. Then again, if it was, you would never be able to lift your head off the ground.

So you think brain size matters on intelligence?

Do you want to back that view, where on Average Africans have a smaller cranium that Europeans and Asians?

Never took you for a racist sassy where you think intelligence is based on head size

Whoops

How would I need to change any Andy?

That is not my job, but are you demeaning those people who do so?

And you are a labour supporter that slates the working class.

What can I say, its easy to expose people when they put their foot in it.
