  1. Caroline Jones who stood in S Wales PCC elections (and Gower in 2011 Assembly elections) has defected to UKIP.

  2. Further to my posting on South East PCCs, Winston Roddick – the independent PCC for North Wales – has also been accused (alongside Simon Hayes, Ind Hampshire, see South East PCCs) of lying about living in the police authority at the time of the election. If this allegation is proved true, could result in a by-election.

  3. Since when did Winston Roddick drop his first name of George, was it?
