GRANTHAM JOURNAL LETTER: Why silence the police?

Have your say

As we don’t appear to be getting the opportunity in Grantham to quiz either the candidates or those responsible for next month’s Police and Crime Commissioner polls, I would like to ask a question via the Journal:

‘If this new policy is indeed intended to be more openly democratic than before, why have individual members of the police force had their freedom of speech and human rights infringed by being banned from discussing the November 15 elections with the general public?’
