Cop-In or Cop-Out in West Mercia?

The Shropshire Star today identifies Des Parkinson, a retired chief superintendent with Dyfed-Powys Police, as wanting the Conservative nomination. The article claims the former national secretary of the Police Superintendents’ Association was involved in the creation of the Sex Offenders Register, the ban on handguns following the Dunblane tragedy in 1996, and the overturning of the double jeopardy law, enabling convictions for the murder of Stephen Lawrence.

Michael Crick has previously reported that former MEP Simon Murphy wants to stand for Labour in West Mercia. Is he the same Simon Murphy listed here as presenting to the Mid Worcestershire and West Worcestershire Labour Party on the topic of “Police and Crime Commissioners – The Ultimate Cop-Out?”?
