Electoral frauds

I've been following Craig Murray's election campaign in the Norwich North by-election and it has become a catalogue of attempts by various public bodies to silence him. The BBC has ignored him, the Post Office has dragged it's feet over delivering his election media (a dvd - that's a first I think) and local schools have tried to deny him a platform on the hustings.

If you didn't know, Craig Murray is a former British ambassador, and has been calling the government out over it's record on colluding with tyranical regimes abroad to torture people on behalf of the British Government, and has made some people in parliament (including our local MP David Miliband) very uncomfortable with the evidence he has collected.

The BBC's claim to be detached and objective is rendered laughable. Why are these bodies attempting to corrupt the democratice process?
