UKIP Cry Foul in Tower Hamlets.

UKIP are the latest party to cry foul as regards the election row gripping the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Allegations have been made that large numbers of supporters from the 'Tower Hamlets First Party' led by Mayoral candidate Lutfur Rahman gathered both inside and outside polling stations to encourage people to vote "the right way".

This in itself breaks electoral law.

UKIP said in a statement earlier that "protests were duly made, but although the police were present, they did nothing."

It took Tower Hamlets Council nearly five days to finally settle on election results.

Local MP Jim Fitzpatrick has also weighed in telling TBG - "Tower Hamlets Council and the Electoral Commission don't seem to be able to deliver a clean election."
