It appears that Cornwall Council has decided that the blame for June's elections fiasco lies with the printers in Sussex and they are loudly telling this to the press.
From what I have seen as Vice Chair of the Electoral Review Panel, there is certainly some blame to be borne by the printers in Sussex. But I am concerned both that the Council seems unwilling to acknowledge its own failings and that they are coming to this conclusion before an external report has finished.
A few weeks ago, we agreed to ask John Turner, and outside expert, to review the failings. He hasn't finished his work and, until he has, I don't think we can be sure where the fault entirely lies.
