Labour Loses three out four Police Commissioners in Wales
Its always good to see Labour lose. They had such high hopes in our police area and then an Independent nicks Gwent from under their noses and thus their barrister candidate flees back to London. While the turn out vindicated Plaids stance on the subject that there was little enthusiasm for the posts, the vote confirmed our view that people feel that the police should not be politicised. We will have to wait and see what impact the new commissioners will have, but in the meantime we can feel happy that a nice well paid job has been denied to a Labour hack.
