What’s the point?

I still can’t see the point of yet another highly paid manufactured job which at first glance seems to be an interference in the running of the police, an extremely responsible and important part of our communities.

I read the article in Wednesday’s Press, ‘‘Force for change’’, there were comments from each of the councillors vying for the position of Police and Crime Commissioner which give off the wrong vibes.

They are both going after this prestigious £70,000 plus per year job and they want us to vote for one of them, but have they actually personally approached us either by meetings in community centres or by door knocking or issuing us with leaflets?

Until a person has had personal meetings, spoken to someone or seen them face-to-face, how are we supposed to judge them and decide if they are worthy of our vote?

We don’t know these councillors, so why should we brave the cold night (or day) air to give them a huge salaried job, the details of which are still obscure.

To be honest I dont either , a family member of mine knows the labour candidate personally and apparently she's very honest , although I do support conservatives so I'm sort of in a position where I probably should just not bother voting

The main thing is I have heard nothing about Them ,because of this it just looks like two people going for a highpayed job

How would we know they are even capable ?

I'm sure they both know what they are doing but unless I hear about what difference they offer apart from party allegiance all I can go on is who I supported at the elections or just not bother which is what I'm going to have to do unfortunatly

It's not the overseeing of the ways the police carry out their function which needs reform, it's our lumbering dinosaur of a legislature with its expensive and self serving legal system.
Give us a say on a reform of that and you will see a lot more people voting for change.
