Politicians are the problem

Politicians are the problem IF THE Labour candidates for the Police and Crime Commissioner can only offer “vote for us and we will fight the Tory cuts”, then God help the police service.

Both Ed Balls and Ed Miliband have said whatever party was in government, there would have been cuts. That’s why Ed Balls was heckled at the TUC conference and Ed Miliband was booed at a union rally. The Tory candidates are no better. Their party policy is to reduce the number of police officers on the beat. I say keep politics out of policing and vote for candidates who have stood on the thin blue line for years. Not some ‘Yes’ man who can’t stand up to their own party.

You at totally wrong. You way ends up with dillatante hobbyists pursuing personal agendas and vendettas. Politicians have a clearly set out direction of travel (Lib-Dems excepted) and you can hold them to this. This election is happening and people have choices I say they are:

Best choice - Labour
Second best - Tory (yes, even they are better than independents, and least you know what you are getting.)
Third best - don't vote.

Interesting poll on here today. Ian Johnson is ahead by a huge margin and the Tory and Labour are neck and neck. I reckon this will be a very interesting election night as you have two votes.

Labour and Tories have the same cutting public sector policy. The only difference is the time scale. Labour would have the public sector die a longer painfull death.

I can't imagine a solicitor Monmouth standing up for a pensioner in Blackwood. He would be thinker of the policing in the leafy greens of Monmouth first. Help labour reaign the Monmouth seat in future election.

We're voting for Independent Ian Johnston. After all, we've had some 600 years of a parliament and we still have issues like homelessness etc etc etc can we really trust the mainstream parties like Labour, the tories and yes, the libs after all these years. Could you? Sorry but I can't.
