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…

    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.

      In Hull, if you stuck a Labour rosette on a donkey it would win any local election.

    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.

      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.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
