Another opening for professional politicians to do I’m not quite sure what in return for a salary four times the national average? Creating new channels through which political parties can directly influence police activities? Am I missing something here? Oh, and in North Yorks. we have the ‘choice’ between (a) unconvincing Labour candidate and (b) unconvincing Conservative candidate – both of whom will ‘put more police on t’streets’ (ten out of ten for creative solutions) whilst of course saving money. Yeh, right. Why don’t we just save money by sacking the whole idea of PCCs. Key message? NOT THOUGHT THROUGH, GUYS.
