  1. Accusations afoot that Simon Hayes, the independent PCC for Hampshire, lied about where he lived at the time of the election. More pertinently, suggestion he lived outside of his authority. Could prompt a by-election.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2401486/Two-crime-tsars-face-sack-lying-live-police-undercover-sting–new-elections-cost-taxpayers-3-6million.html

    A by-election which presumably will be held nearer the end of the year – typically a terrible time for turnout – after a main election with a godawful turnout. And it’s a by-election to boot, with all the turnout drop in tow. Dare I say it could possibly be one of the very worst turnouts an election’s ever faced here in Blighty.

  2. The only saving grace is that turnout would probably be slightly higher in Hampshire than elsewhere in the country in similar circumstances.

  3. Maybe so – but I think people will take to the idea of Police and Crime Commissioners in due course.
    Sometimes, police forces need a kick up the backside like everyone else to do their job properly – just like the outrage at Mid Staffs.

    Consequently we’ll see a higher turnout in the next round of elections – although perhaps alas not here in a by-election – if there is one.

  4. Interestingly, Michael Mates (the former Tory MP), who came second in the PCC election in Hampshire, is also accused of the same thing.

  5. Finally have an update. No action will be taken against Hayes: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24525357

    We’ve avoided the spectacle of a PCC by-election for now.
