I can’t help feeling suspicious about the whole thing. The role of the PCC, which is a pretty significant change to how we are policed was created without any democractic involvement. I personally want a police officer running West Mercia not a politician. It is very risky having people with potentially strong political ideology running the police force. To put it quite simply, politicians can’t be trusted. I think this is an attempt by the ruling elite to gain everymore control.
It is vital that the Police are completely free of political influence, to put one individual in this position is dangerous!
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.
