Kerry McCarthy MP cautioned for postal vote Tweet

Kerry McCarthy Labour MP for Bristol East was given a police caution today for illegally revealing a postal vote result on Twitter.

I replied to Kerry's tweet at the time and I also reported this on Bracknell Blog when it happened, Bristol East are opening postal votes in the name of sampling and results are reported.

I think a police caution is the right action. Kerry is very lucky as she could of received a 6 month prison sentence and a £5k fine.
