Michael Crick has issued an update on his lists of Police and Crime Commissioner candidates, linking to TopOfTheCops.com in the process, possibly as thanks for sending some tips his way.
So, what is there that we didn’t know before? See the results at our links on the right of this page for Avon & Somerset, Bedfordshire, Devon and Cornwall, Dyfed-Powys, Greater Manchester, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, South Wales, Staffordshire, Sussex, Thames Valley, Warwickshire, and West Mercia.
However, he’s not the only journalist interested in the news and views on the site, which is also being followed by BBC North-West’s Arif Ansari, the Daily Mail’s Chris Greenwood, the Guardian’s Alan Travis, the Huffington Post’s Chris Wimpress, the Yorkshire Post’s Rob Preece, Al Jazeera’s Brian Ging and the Belfast Telegraph’s Deborah McAleese (despite there being no Police and Crime Commissioner election in Northern Ireland, or the Middle East for that matter).
Prospective Candidates, and folk like Crest Advisory who seek to advise them, police authority members and staff, and politicians such as Douglas Carswell MP, Daniel Hannan MEP and Shadow Justice Minister David Hanson MP have all been along for a look in the last week or so. There are cops, there may be robbers for all we know and ordinary members of the public – all very welcome.
So if you want your voice to be heard, comment on our articles or drop a line to the editor – lots of good people are listening.
