SO Nick Boles wants us to vote for his Conservative mate, Coun Richard Davies, to become police commissioner for Lincolnshire.
I doubt if the electorate will be any more interested in this than the election of mayors and in any event, like so many of this government’s policies is an import from the USA.
Many professionals are concerned at the politicising of our police services and the cost of these unnecessary changes estimated at £100 million at a time when government cuts are significantly reducing the number of police on front line services.
For Nick Boles to suggest that if people want to put an end to yobbishness and vandalism, they should vote for his mate, is ‘cloud cuckoo land’ stuff.
