Public says No to Politician PCCs

New figures show the public don’t want politicians taking up roles as police commissioners. Later today Policy Exchange will release the results of a poll showing that just 6% think politicians would make good PCCs. With Labour having a remarkable change of heart about the whole policy after realising they would win most of them, what’s the worst that could happen? This could get very embarrassing…

    Prescott should be inside that cop shop with the door firmly locked behind him.

    Bread and water twice a day – that’d get the lard off the fat smug c’unt pdq.

    Yikes, corrupt labour politicoes in charge of the police?

    Now that’s a recipe for a coup d’etat, at the very least we will see a gross invasion and abuse of laws to silence political opposition.

    Prescott would make the KGB look like rank amateurs.

    But the turnout in the election will be low even if combined with council elections. If a candidate can they get the party activists behind them then will not need much to swing the vote unless there is a lot of local bad feeling towards a particular candidate.

    Why the hell would the public want more political interference in the Police?

    Look at what New Labour did to the Police – turned them into political enforcers of multi_culti doctrine and roadside tax collectors.

    We want less politicians, less public sector and less feffing about with things that are not broken.

    FFS why can’t they just back off?

    This lefty authoritarianism is all pervading now – the Lab / Lib / Con Party are virtually identical in their fuckwittery.

    Army destroyed – check
    Currency destroyed – check
    Free press silenced – check
    More EU control over the UK – check
    Political control of the Police – check

    And this is a Tory led Government is it?

    I have had enough of it – Cameron out – get a Tory in now.

    I seriously cannot think of anyone outside of obvious convicted criminals that would make a worse Police Commissioner than John Prescott.

    I’m friends with so many rich dodgy dictators, it’s hard to pick which ones to spend weekends partying with. Remember, when my critics claim no one did well under Labour, just mention me. I’ve done splendidly thanks to Labour.

    Maybe now the team is not so hideously white we can all celebrate the rainbow nation of England winning.

    Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst – reactionary white colonialists who should be written out of English history.

    The Irresponsible Left says:

    They had an interview with a Labour and a Conservative candidate on PM yesterday.

    The Conservative candidate obviously very knowledgeable on the subject detailed how he would reduce crime in his area working with all the different agencies (not just the police) to bring down youth crime as his most important task. Which makes perfect sense.

    The Labour candidate just ranted on about cutbacks in police funding and how he would wage a political battle to get more funding. And what’s more he didn’t even believe in the job he was standing for,

    So there you had one man who knew about crime and how people come to fall into criminality and had a plan to do something about it and another man who was only interested in the politics. It would be a crying shame if the political upstart won

    I am begining to understand what they mean by sustainability and political careers, they continually create jobs for themselves, so they can sustain themselves at our expense.

    So with a load of failed labour mp’s as police commissioners what is going to happen to the police when the ‘brothers’ are out on strike or a protest march?
    Are they going to be kept in the office as the parade goes past? and god forbid if they are nasty to any of the poor dears…
    Out of interest, concrening the MP’s expenses scandle – did anyone cross reference the claims made by Ed Balls with the ones put in by his Missus?

    I was paying my wife, who is completely uneducated and can’t spell, as an ‘occasional case worker’ on £20,000 a year. Unfortunately, I had to take her off the payroll when a couple of local troublemakers took her photograph around the shopkeepers surrounding my constituency office and none of them recognised her. B*stards. Boaz.

    Real Tories are people who don’t get enough sex.
    New Labour are people who get more sex than tories, but not always with their own gender.
    Old Labour are people who get more sex than most, although not always with their own species.
    Lib-Dems.OK, you can work than one out on your own.
    Cameron Tories get lots and lots of sex, mainly with themseolves.

    The Serpent stings says:

    BTW, it is FEWER politicians, not less politicians.
    Unfortunately politicians are capable of being counted and correct grammar indicates that for numerically quantifiable objects the right word for describing a reduction in the number of objects is “fewer.”.
    If the object to which you are referring is not generally numerically quantifiable, (such as a pile of sand) the word to use for a decrease in the object is “less”.
    Here endeth the lesson.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
