Bruges Group Director told to check his “White Male Privilege” after making a case for Voter ID in future elections.

On Sky News, Naomi Smith, the CEO of Pro EU leaning ‘Best For Britain’ caused controversy after losing her temper, saying it’s typical for a “white privileged man” to ask others to show ID to vote.

This heated exchange of words was sparked after a debate was held in the Parliament yesterday regarding whether we needed to have Voter ID in place to prevent fraud in our elections.

The Best for Britain CEO verbally attacked Robert Oulds, the Director of the Conservative thinking’ Bruges group’, after Mr Oulds said it was about time we have more confidence that our elections will be secure than in previous elections.

Mr Oulds Said: “Britain’s electoral practices are outdated. They’re outmoded. Other parts of the United Kingdom already have voter ID such as Northern Ireland. It works there very well. It doesn’t suppress turnout. If we want confidence in our elections, then these measures need to go forward.”

Naomi Smith responded, saying: “Well, voter ID is one problem with this bill, and I will come back to that, but it is also really, uh, an attempt to stifle opposition to silence critics or potentially even to rig future elections.”

“When we look at the issue of voter ID, as you said, they were just a hand cases of people trying to steal somebody else’s vote the last election. So what the introduction of voter ID is much more likely to do is to deter people from voting rather than stamp out a non-existent problem.”

Sky News Adam Boulton then entered the debate, stating Voter ID wasn’t needed as voter ID fraud is such small insignificance in the election.

Mr Oulds responded, saying: “It’s best to stop the problem before it happens. In Tower Hamlets, we saw someone elected as a mayor on the basis of fraudulent votes. It’s not just in those areas. It’s also in parts of Slough, in Scotland, other parts of the United Kingdom have suffered from this. We can have election interruptions, should an election be close. They will be contested.”

CEO of Best for Britain accuses Bruges group director of having white male privilege.

Mr Oulds then hit back after the Sky News presenter tried to assert that having to show ID cards in elections would mainly hit and exclude non-Conservative voters.

Mr Oulds said: “Absolutely not. Everybody has access to ID. And of course, if they don’t, for some reason, for some strange reason that they don’t have a passport, a driving license or other forms of identification, they can get the identification from the council.”

Naomi Smith didn’t like that answer and then attacked the Bruges Group Director, bringing race and sexism into the debate.

Naomi said: “I think it’s very easy for a white privileged man to be able to make those concessions to the campaign groups that represented those marginalized people. And they are saying that this is going to create yet another barrier to accessing democracy.”

With Mr Robert Oulds knowing he had the woke lefty CEO rattled, he didn’t hold back, saying: “It’s giving individuals more power. It’s giving the right to make sure that if you are actually entitled to vote, your vote will count, and it will not be diluted by those who have harvested ballots illegally through the manipulation of our postal votes, which does happen.”

  1. The sooner Voter ID is introduced as a legal requirement in the UK as a whole, the better. Those criminals that have used other persons votes are the breed that still live in the dark ages, they do not accept that women for instance have a voice or a life. They still have this mentality that the female should be totally oppressed, they have not moved on in the modern world.

    I do not buy the argument that voter ID is a tool for to stifle opposition, in other words do exactly what the voter ID would stop, electoral fraud. Maybe it is about time Naomi Smith grew up and started living in the real world and started to get experience of what happens in Birmingham, what happens in Luton, what happen in London, what happens in Slough, what happens in the Midlands where there are huge pockets of one group of society that still live in the dark ages and where criminality as a whole is generally committed by this pocket of society.

    Voter ID is the only means of resolving of electoral fraud. A very easy and cost effective system, you swipe your ID which then allows you to vote. The system would automatically match the ID with the person using it, if the details do not match the user, then it is probable that criminal offences are being committed.

    I fail to see where Naomi Smith gets her assertion that voter ID is a way of stifling opposition. Is she so thick to realise, we live in a democratic society, unlike her beloved EU where everything is dictated from the German High Command, the government, MP’s or even local authority officials have absolutely no say in how people vote, just as they have no say on who puts their name forward, providing they comply with the legal requirements, then there is no opposition from the local authority or anybody else as to who stands for election. That is democracy.

    What we are talking about is eliminating criminality. Yes it is on a very small scale and only in certain parts of the country where a particular group of society are very prominent in everything, but still live in the dark ages. She should get herself out and about, learn about the system rather than spouting off her oppositions on an issue she does not obviously understand.

    The sooner Voter Photo ID Cards are introduced, the better for democracy.
