Nigel Kennedy tells Guardian he arranged electoral fraud in Camden

A very odd except from The Guardian‘s interview with musician Nigel Kennedy:

Kennedy lives in Glenda Jackson’s north London constituency, where she only won by 50 votes at the last election, so I ask if he voted. “Oh yeah.” Then he adds, quite casually, “In fact, my wife wasn’t there, so I got another friend to go and vote for Jackson with my wife’s voting card.” Seriously? “Yeah, yeah, man, and it was really worth it in that case.”

Going to the polling station and voting under someone else’s name is against the law. (It is a corrupt practice under Section 60 of the Representation of the People Act 1983.)

UPDATE: Here’s the outcome of the police investigation.
