Collin Barry's Secret Ballot: Blackjack with the cards faced down

NSW Election Commissioner, Colin Barry's refusal to publish the detailed results of the NSW state election upper house ballot is akin to a blackjack dealer dealing a deck of cards face down and then declaring the results without showing the cards.

What is it he has to hide.  Why has he refused to published the ballot election data files?

Colin Barry's actions continue to bring the conduct of the 2011 NSW State election into disrepute and open to allegations of fraud and corruption.

Elections conducted by computers counts are no longer open and transparent,  Publication of the data file should be undertaken progressively during the count as was the case during the 2008 Melbourne City Council Election.
