Later this year there are elections being held for police crime commissioners. I wasnt really that fussed about it until I realised that there lies an opportunity to get my nose in the trough of public funding and also enjoy chats without coffee with the Chief Constable this time him being stood up and me sat down.
I'm not usually in favour of wasting public money this way, there are usually far more fun ways (dems ranges etc) to do that. I was originally tempted to do this on the principal that it would be like the local council, free but expenses paid. Nope it seems its a full time job with staff and a payroll.
So what I am getting to is do we the massed ranks of the Army Rumour Service fancy putting up for election any ex service persons not in council or police employment and should we do it as independants or form a political party?
Either way as I am more skint than usual I will be asking for donations to my campaign fund to become the elected PCC for Sussex.
Dig deep folks you know there will be a drinks cabinet in my office!

I would run a poll but being norman the stores mong I doubt I can work that one out!

But does it contain Kernow cider, Buckie, and methylated spirits?

At the rate serving officers are threatening to leave, the commsioner's job may end up being a lot more 'hands on' then they thought.

Do you get a Batphone?

Well Tim Collins has pulled out of the Kent application as the Tories Poster Boy so there is plenty of room for other characters!

Imagine the press, imagine the politicians running round like headless chickens trying to find some obscure rule that means they could ban them from standing, imagine all the teeth gnashing from all the "minority groups"....


Please let it happen.........

If it's anything like the NHS setup then it will not matter if you do get in or not, because the officially appointed positions will out number any other segment of the voluntary/voted in part of the commission.

Go for it. I'll spot you for one of your English Quids.

It will end up like every other elective role, full of politicos and morons. Nothing will change.
