Who’s cross about last Thursday then? I am. Two local schools shut down, two daughters at home for the day and about 12 people turned out to vote for the new Police and Crime Commissioner.
Yes it’s old news, but what a waste of time that election was in the way it was carried out.
I spent a while finding out about the candidates online. Then I got to the booth and discovered that I had to make two choices.
And how are we supposed to judge how these people will do?
All that responsibility based on a paragraph on the internet and maybe a couple of minutes on the television?
Surely there are people far more qualified than me to judge who will be best in the role?
