Lack of choice in poll amounts to vote-rigging

Once again, the BMA has sent out a flawed voting paper.

We are offered a choice of A or B. Both are imposed and contrary to our written contract agreement. The BMA will say that GPs voted for whichever gets the majority of votes. But it did not allow us to vote against both. This leaves the results wide open to misrepresentation and amounts to vote-rigging.

In Kenya there are riots because of limits on who one can vote for, and people are dying for the cause of honesty, yet here the BMA expects us to accept it as normal practice.

This sort of manipulation of the polls ought to be unacceptable.
