Abstract

Bringing our Police and Crime Commissioner coverage to a close is a somewhat different sort of article, as Wyn Grant reviews the historical 55 days and discusses the political lessons which can be drawn from it. He argues that the PCC elections illustrate how the political class protects its own and that, while we must resist populist disdain for politicians, it also necessary to recruit our leaders from outside the political class.
