Bill Etheridge, the UKIP West Midlands Police & Crime Commissioner candidate.
Question: other than by-elections, is there any national elections taking place before Christmas? Now go and ask others that question and see the looks of puzzlement from those asked. In order to put them out of their misery let them know the answer is yes, the PCC election on Thursday 15th November – then wait for another look of complete bafflement.
For those in the know the PCC elections are taking place all around the country to elect 41 Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC), the average person not only does not have a clue about these elections taking place, they don’t understand what these elected representatives will do, the fact they will be earning £100,000 a year or in charge of substantial budgets – most don’t know why they are being asked to vote for. When it comes to these elections ignorance, sadly, is bliss.
