No charges will be made against Conservative candidates who allegedly broke electoral law during the 2015 campaign. The first reaction of some of those involved was to feel vindicated, their second was to attack the regulators. Alistair Clark explains the importance of electoral law, and writes that, with trust in politics being already weak, politicians should be supporting the regime, whatever its flaws may be.
