Voting fraud

Political Betting has an interesting speculative piece on the effect of further allegations of voting fraud during or after the general election campaign.
The question is what effect finding such evidence will have. If, as is possible, the winning party win a majority despite losing the popular vote, then in my humble opinion the brown stuff will hit the fan if any [hypothetical] allegations involve the governing party.

Of course it's quite possible that this would be met with a shrug of the shoulders, particularly if more than one party had been caught at it. But if only Labour were caught, the effects could be startling. The question is whether anyone in the UK would care enough to do anything about it.
