Election jiggery pokery

I was going to say 'calumny' but then I found out it didn't mean what I thought it meant i.e. general naughtiness, but instead means false accusation or slander or defamation.

Anyway. First of all it's the BBC accused of bias; now I find that even my polling station isn't immune: it has a definite tendency to lean to the right. This is obviously a deliberate attempt to affect the subconscious of the voters. Sending subliminal messages to our brains. 

Well, it won't work on me!

P.S. I know it's an optical illusion but allow me the opportunity to use the word 'calumny'.

That's a polling station? A bit basic, isn't it? They'll be using campervans next.

It does its job. They have little heaters and a mobile lavatory.

Wouldn't work here, since these are usually towed from place to place and parked in supermarket car parks to be used as mammograph centers . It might be difficult to re-brand them successfully .
