Blackburn MP Jack Straw has blamed the timing of the election for the low turnout.

Speaking at the PCC count in Lancashire, he said: "The turnouts are lamentable but that is the fault of the Government for constructing them in this system in the first place."

"It was almost as if the Conservatives were embarrassed by the idea of having these polls. Well, some may say they have got what they wished for. It is no good saying we have got the idea established. This is a very poor start for these police commissioners, whichever party they come from.

"It was crazy to voluntarily choose mid-November for the election. It is cold, it is dark, the clocks have gone back. I was going around on a loudspeaker late yesterday afternoon - I have done this for 40 years - but in the end I gave up."

Why is that odious creep Jack Straw blaming the fact that it is November for the low turn out in the polls?

There is a low turn out because nobody gives a shiny **** about who is elected as Police Commissioner - basically a job for the boys position that will have little or no influence on how individual areas are policed.

It will also be interesting to see the number of spoiled votes (I think they are initially included for the purposes of the reported 15.5% turnout figure.)

So, are elections for the police commissioner good or bad, Jack ? Get off the fence. If they are, why didn't Labour introduce them?

Overall turnout 15.5% No candidate received more than 50% of the first choice votes. This means that Mr Grunshaw has been elected by less than 7.75% of the electorate. This cannot be regarded as a mandate for him, or any other candidate, and makes a mockery of the whole sorry process. And yes, I did vote.

How the hell can someone vote for Clive Grunshaw, when he couldn't even be bothered to submit his profile on the police elections website.

Did you see Prescotts face! Priceless!
Jack Straw? Is anyone interested in what he has to say? Answers on a post card please! I hope that the new police commissioners have a zero policy on illegal drugs and those that sell them! The death penalty please for dealers in death! is the way forward. Once a drug dealer always a drug dealer, leopards do not change their spots,

So now we'll see labour commissioners reducing crime fighting resources so red Ed can blame the tories, and Con and Lib commissioners going hell for leather to fight crime so the coalition can brag about it.

Excluded again says...

The introduction of the Police and Crime commissioners has cost the taxpayer around £100 million. This is enough to employ around 3000 police officers.

Since this government came to power 5000 police officers have lost their jobs as a result of cuts to police budgets. Most of these police officer jobs could have been saved if the government had not chosen to introduce PCCs.

This election should never have gone to a public vote. The powers that be should have sorted it out themselves and put their own man in place as they usually do.The money that the government has wasted on this is criminal itself.

Expect police chases to resemble the Dukes of Hazzard from now on, with Lancashire's Labour Bobbies screeching to a halt as they reach the count border, unable to cross into the areas controlled by the Conservatives Cops of Cumbria!!
