Conservatives Hand Over Control of UK Police Forces to Labour Gravy Train Riders

Politics / UK Politics Jun 20, 2012 - 01:40 AM GMT

By: N_Walayat

Politics

Labour who opposed the creation of Police and Crime Commissioner posts, announces its candidates for the jobs across England and Wales 41 police forces, who will be standing at the November 15th public elections which in most cases will just be a formality as the Conservatives, supposedly the party for law and order have effectively scored a huge own goal by handing over control of most of Britain's police force's to an assortment of Labour characters including ex Ministers and MP's, many of whom were criticised over their abuse of MP expenses, and a number had to repay tens of thousands of pounds and were lucky not to be prosecuted for alleged expenses fraud.


The coalition will now spend £100 million on PCC elections all in the same of savings costs, whilst through the process handing over control of most of the police forces to the Labour party. The Tory / Lib-Dem coalition will be lucky to win one fifth of the 41 posts up for grabs given that the Coalition at mid-term is at it's maximum level of unpopularity. This is indicative of a very weak government that is prone to making huge blunders right across the spectrum and is sowing the seeds for a huge Labour victory at the 2015 general election (if the coalition makes it that far).

So those most critical of the role of Police and Crime Commissioner, and many of whom have no relevant experience, will now be in charge of the police forces as a consequence of the huge carrot of £100k annual salaries plus EXPENSES, it remains to be seen if we will see a re-run of the MP expenses scandal with PCC's in a few years time.

The full list of Labour Candidates who have jumped on board PCC gravy train despite not believing in the posts are:

Staffordshire - Joy Gardner
