Police Commissioners

I didn't go and vote yesterday. I don't think that police commissioners should be elected. If them, why not health commissioners, education commissioners, etc? Isn't that what local government is supposed to be for, anyway? Of course central governments of both hues have doggedly run that down over the decades while paying lip service to it. One person's local democracy becomes another's postcode rationing. Funny we jut got it imposed on us, without a referendum, isn't it?

Hats off to poliphilo for spoiling his ballot and saying why on the paper. It was the only thing I could have done if I'd gone to vote.
