Would rather there be competency rather than politics involved

Couldn’t really decide whether spoiling or abstaining would demonstrate my contempt for this idea the better. More people going down to the polling centre suggests more interest and the fact that spoiling is indistinguishable from just being too think to vote correctly in the records swung it. I’m not participating in this offensive charade.

Politics and policing don’t mix

I find it really scary that the great police force we already have will be or could be thrown another spanner in the works. The police already have the CPS to deal with so things can only get worse. I feel police and politics should not be mixed.

This website allowed people to publicly explain why and let people know what message they were trying to send by spoiling their Police & Crime Commissioner ballot papers.

The submission form has now been removed, but the material collected is available to read.
