On Thursday 23rd June 2016 the people of the UK will be placing their ‘X’ on the ballot paper to decide whether or not the UK should remain or leave the European Union (EU).
But does your vote actually count or have we good reason to believe that voting is more about an illusionary democracy, designed to strengthen the false belief system held by the masses that we do indeed live in a democratic society and we do have the ability to control the direction our society takes.
Lets just go back to the the recent Scottish referendum for Scottish Independence.
‘Tens of thousands sign petitions wanting recount or fresh vote based on videos that purport to show evidence of electoral fraud’ – The Guardian

In Dundee polling station a fire alarm went off and much controversy has occurred over a piece of footage recorded while the alarm was still ringing and the building was ‘supposed’ to be evacuated.
The Independent writes:
Survey results detailed in the the Electoral Commission’s referendum report reveal that 34% of respondents believe fraud took place during the referendum, with 12% insisting it took place “a lot” and 22% “a little”.
Those on the Yes side are significantly more likely to believe in referendum fraud, according to the survey. On the Yes side, 42% said there was fraud, but just 21% of No voters agreed.
In the days following the referendum, nearly 100,000 people signed an online petition demanding a recount of the referendum after “evidence” of fraud spread through social media. It said:
Countless evidences of fraud during the recent Scottish Referendum have come to light, including two counts of votes being moved in bulk into a No pile, Yes votes clearly being seen in No piles and strange occurrences with dual fire alarms and clear cut fraud in Glasgow.
Concerns have already been raised over potential vote rigging in the upcoming referendum with 16 key locations highlighted and fraud operations in place:
However if the votes were arranged to be rigged from positions much higher up within the political structure you can be sure it would be not in these particular areas.
Fraud operations should be carried out by a non-government organisation and shadowed by an entirely separate non-related entity. For the Government to Police their own referendums is just laughable!
