Given the mess in Barnet, with apparently many people not being able to vote, would the outcome still stand? What a mess ...

What's happened?

The Guardian

seems to suggest that there could be a challenge

Oops.

I guess most will vote though. They'll just go back.

I'm not in London, but I read about Barnet. I got the feeling that if there was a challenge which was upheld, only Barnet would get to re-vote, not the whole of London.

What a massive mess up though!

Won't affect any postal votes. Funny that.

Portends for the referrendum?

According to what I heard on the radio, anyone who wants to challenge the result would have to petition the High Court. Unless the result is very close, I doubt it's worth anyone's while.
