I have just received my postal ballot papers for this expensive and unnecessary farce. Clearly this is a well-paid political patronage sinecure and out of work politicos will be put forward for it by their local people. I am offered: A Lib Dem - no thanks, how could I trust that sort of woolly idiot to sort out crime? A piece of Labour filth - no thanks, I'd sooner soil my trousers than vote for anything to do with the party that has been destroying my country since 1945 Michael Mates !!!!!! whose support for Asil Nadir suggests that his grasp of right and wrong may be a touch flawed. So, no thanks. Ever. And see Private Eye Hp Sauce: Mates Rates. Hampshire Tories must be off their head. Tells me something about any other candidates they put up for anything at all. UKIP bod. Not sure about the relevance! so no thanks. Simon Alexander Hayes, independent. Chairman of Crimestoppers Hampshire & the Isle of Wight, and past Chairman of Hampshire Police Authority. Mmmmmm a possible. Don Jerrard, Justice and Anti-Corruption Party. No heard of therm before. A possible after looking at their website. But I expect a politico will get it as they have party finance behind them. What does ARRSE think? Advise me please.
