I didn't vote because I was busy from 6:30am until 10:30pm.
where's the moral plimsole line of your obligation* to vote in an election for an office you don't think should be elected?
*assumes a certain level of moral obligation not outright legal obligation
I was a bit puzzled that there was a ukips running for it, i thought they were only for uk independance....dont quite see how this affects this role....perhaps he want west midlands constabulary to co-operate less with interpol?
Actually what he wanted was ZERO TOLERANCE for ALL CRIME
(except motoring offences.....he wants the police to stop hasseling decent tax avoiding, drunken, speeding, incompetant motorists)
beats me too.
We should take it as tacit consent to abolish the police in that area
That supposedly polices by consent, we should probably just sack the whole thing off then :D
"Ann tries to explain her role, once again with the help of the flipchart. "Oh dear, what is a police commissioner? Right, well, the police commissioner … it's not the police commissioner, it's the police and crime commissioner, it's PPC," she says writing PPC on pad. "It's police … sorry, PCC [crosses out PPC], let's try that one again [flips over a new blank page] … Well, it's a strange job this, it's a strange role, there's actually no job description at all.""
I'll be honest, I'm not sure they should be allowed to commission much crime at all.
