In 2007, Eshaq Khan (Conservative) beat Lydia Simmons by 119 votes in Slough council's Central Ward. But Khan was 'incompetent' and too 'blatant' and got caught using fake postal votes.
Khan and his Conservative team (1) created hundreds of false names and entered them on the electoral register. (2) Then made applications for postal votes for these "ghost voters".
Mawrey said that postal voting on demand was “lethal to the democratic process”.
