Faith or otherwise in the fairness of elections

Those nice people at Worldpublicopinion.org have been asking the following:

"Do you think that [Country] would or would not benefit from having international observers monitor elections here?"

And the United Kingdom is one of the countries in the poll, although WPO has called it Great Britain.

Since they have a nifty graphic to show the data, I'm borrowing it:

So, a majority of us see no need for international observers, but it is a tribute to the absolutely shameful degree of chicanery that has gone on with postal voting fraud of late that a figure as high as 46% would like observers.

I for one would be utterly ashamed of this country if I had to walk past bored Swedes, Indians etc at my local polling station in order to exercise my franchise.
