I agree with need to hold a proper inquiry, and hate election fraud as much as anyone else. But I must point out that, Sunday is not a good day to do this. Pick a day when your MP is going to be in his or her constituency office for sure.

Even if our MP was there. Nothing would happen. He's an idiot. He probably paid for those calls himself. That would have been the only way he could have won the riding.
18 votes between an idiot and an experienced, intelligent person is very fishy tome.
