Who should be my Police Commissioner?

There is no-one called Gordon (first or last name) standing in Manchester’s Police Commissioner election. And, more seriously, we have received no information about the vote beyond polling cards.

Choose my PCC will tell you who’s standing in your area. The Greater Manchester page lists five candidates, one from each of the three main parties, a Lib Dem and an independent. Their official statements are predictably banal but luckily Matt Gallagher for the Lib Dems, Tony Lloyd for Labour and Michael Winstanley for the Conservatives each have their own PCC pages, which I shall be perusing. Steven Woolfe, the UKIP candidate, directs you to the UKIP northwest site. The independent candidate doesn’t have a site, but you can email him any questions at roywarrensnr@aol.com.

Voting for Police Commissioners is on the 15th.
