Dear Mr Gibson

Thank you for your email to the Electoral Commission.

We are aware of a video clip circulating online in which an individual claims to have come into possession of ballot papers from the recent referendum on independence for Scotland.

The Electoral Commission did not administer the referendum on independence for Scotland; this was the remit of the Chief Counting Officer, Mary Pitcaithly, by virtue of her position as the Convener of the Electoral Management Board for Scotland. Local logistical arrangements were the responsibility of the relevant Counting Officer for each local counting area.

There are arrangements in place to maintain the security of ballot papers at all times in any electoral event. At the close of poll, the Presiding Officer for each polling place seals the slot of the ballot box and any polling agents (representing any of the registered campaign groups) who are present may also affix their seal to it. The ballot box and other relevant documentation from the polling station are delivered to the count centre directly and without delay; these items are not left unattended at any time and are only handled by authorised members of the Counting Officer’s staff.

Subsequently, the counting of votes is observed at all times by representatives from the registered campaign groups and independent observers; Electoral Commission representatives may also be present. On completion of the counting of votes, each Counting Officer will have arranged for the counted and rejected ballot papers to be sealed in separate packets, along with the other relevant documents from the polling stations, the postal vote processes and the count, to the Proper Officer of the local authority area in which the votes have been cast. In order to maintain a clear and transparent audit trail, each packet is labelled with a description of its contents, the date of the referendum, how long the packet is to be kept and when it is to be destroyed. Each Counting Officer records the details of the number of packets sent to the Proper Officer and obtains a receipt from the Proper Officer indicating that the parcels have been safely received.  All packets containing referendum documents are stored securely before being transferred to the Proper Officer so that no unauthorised persons can tamper with them. This is in accordance with guidance issued by the Chief Counting Officer.

Please be assured that we take any allegations of electoral fraud very seriously. However, as the Electoral Commission does not have any power to investigate allegations of electoral fraud, any such allegations must be reported to the police. We have spoken with the police who have confirmed that this matter has also been reported directly to them. A person purporting to be the individual shown in the video has contacted us today and stated that he has sent the ballot papers to the police.

I hope this addresses your concerns, but if you have any further question, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Yours sincerely,

****** *******

Referendum Officer

So if he is real, these votes are real, then what?

Trainspotting Actor Peter Mullan Hits Out At ‘Bullying’ Scottish Referendum No Campaign


Many more are seeing the lies and fear being spread!! At the right time

Many more are seeing the lies and fear being spread!! At the right time

More people are having a REAL go at the No campaign, the BBC and other political liars, THANKFULLY we Scot’s are too smart to take in the lies. So we share the lies on Social media. Back in 1979 when we were lied to in the same circumstances of where we are now, we believed Westminster. Now with Social Media lies and anger and mistruth’s are shared almost right away. Yes Scotland see the lies, we have had enough, so has Peter!

Trainspotting actor actor Peter Mullan has hit out at “scaremongering” by anti-Scottish independence campaigners, branding it “deeply insulting and very patronising”. Mullan, who played Swanney in Danny Boyle’s 1996 film Trainspotting, made the comments as he campaigned for a Yes vote in Glasgow with Scottish Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. His comments came in the wake of reports that shoppers could have to pay higher prices if Scotland votes for independence next week, and that banks and financial institutions such as Royal Bank of Scotland could move to London.

Alex Salmond has accused the UK treasury of trying to smear the Yes campaign by confirming RBS’s plans to journalists. Actor Mullan, who also starred in Children of Men, is Scottish and described himself as a ‘lifelong supporter’ of independence. He said: “The scaremongering of the last few days was hardly surprising, it wasn’t unexpected. “We all knew that they were going to throw the kitchen sink at us and now they’re basically ripping apart the entire kitchen, it’s plates, cups, saucers, knives, forks, they’re throwing at us. “It makes me angry because it is bullying of the highest order and it is intolerable.

“In fact it is getting wearisome, every day you wake up and it’s like ‘what will they come up with today, what will they dream up about this catastrophe that will befall us all?’ “It’s deeply insulting and very patronising, this notion that all of us, for the last 2,000 years, hadn’t realised how useless a country we were, how we were incapable of doing anything and how, if as part of a democratic process we choose to determine our own fate, our own destiny, then we are looking towards complete economic meltdown. I find that really insulting. The actor and director said he had never understood why Scotland “didn’t run our own affairs”.  He added: “It was just like an instinct. It’s like breathing. This is something we should never be having to ask ourselves, whether we control our own country.” He also said a Yes vote would be “huge” for Scotland’s arts and cultural sector, claiming: “It will be massive, it will unleash a huge level of creativity we couldn’t even have dreamt of 10, 20, 30, 40 years ago. The confidence it will give to the creatives in our country is incalculable.” While polls increasingly suggest the contest between pro and anti independence campaigners is too close to call, Mullan insisted: “I think it’s going to be a Yes. “When people go into that little booth and they see that very simple question, I really believe a lot of folk who are undecided, when they really think about it, when they go with their heart and their head, I think they will vote Yes.”
