The 14 already selected Labour Greater London Assembly candidates have been allocated votes each worth 1,000 ordinary Labour Party members' votes. These arch-Blairite GLA candidates have been hand-picked by Millbank, but elected by no one. Yet elected Labour councillors in the London boroughs have been allocated no votes whatsoever, simply because a sizeable majority would vote for Ken Livingstone.
Labour's electoral college system is rigged to a degree tantamount to electoral fraud.

Sir: Ken Williamson's views on voter apathy are correct (letter, 12 November). I am not an apathetic voter. I have an opinion as to how my country should be run, how the poor, the sick and the disabled should be cared for. Unfortunately, like Mr Williamson, I am not often impressed by the calibre of the candidates. I would like a "None of the above" option on my ballot paper. This way, I can show the Government that I value my vote but I will not squander it on a person or party not worthy of it.
