Vindication for those who thought it was a silly idea
Did we want crime commissioners? No, that’s why hardly anyone bothered to vote in the elections, knowing we’d just end up with party hacks. And a couple of liars, if what today’s news is saying is right. The commissioner for North Wales really lives 175 miles away, in Cardiff, and the commissioner for Hampshire actually lives 115 miles away in Northamptonshire. So two of the characters charged with hiring and firing chief constables and acting the part of the old borough police authority don’t think the people paying their wages deserve the truth.
