why are all the candidates aligned to political parties - why not just some regular people who want the best for the community - not someone with a political agenda
For anyone interested to know WHY all the affiliations to political parties, I suggest you read The Rest Is Silence by James Patrick. It's currently available for a short time as a free ebook on Amazon.
It will explain just why. Interesting links with G4S (the company chosen to offer civilian services & custody staff) and SERCO (the company who seem to be taking over the NHS) too.
If you are concerned with the future of Policing and just what PCC's will mean, I strongly suggest you read it.
A lot of people seem to think that the Police are just annoyed at their pensions being messed with (same with the NHS, Armed Forces, Fire Brigade & Paramedics) but it really isn't that at all.
Some of the information in the book was no shock to me as I'd already done some research into the links between the Home Office, Theresa May, Tom Winsor, G4S etc. This goes further.
