Labour leadership election: party to check voting history of new supporters



Secret ballot



What happens in the voting booth on Polling Day is a secret between the ballot paper and the voters conscience isn't it?
How is it that the Labour party can "check voting history of new supporters "?
If this headline is true, then the Labour party " secet police" and their methods of obtaing such information should be exposed and investigated and if necessary subjected to prosecution under the "Representation of the People Act"
Or is it that this "story" is just another pathetic piece of journalistic nonsense from Rowena Mason and the pro Cooper campaign being waged by the Guardian?
