Police and Crime Commissioners

I am going to retire this scoop in the next couple of weeks.



I have become increasingly disillusioned by the whole PCC process, last weeks election was a farce and much of the time the only headlines seem to relate to one or another PCC visiting somewhere or welcoming a new law without saying anything of any substance or value.


personally I think we should abolish them  and as it is quite clear that I can have no say in that I can at least abolish this scoop!
