First hour: Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner hustings part 1: Discussion with PCC candidates:
Independent – incumbent - Sue Mountstevens;
Labour – Kerry Barker;
Lib Dem – Paul Crossley;
Green party – Chris Briton;
Independent, former chair of Avon and Somerset Police Federation - Kevin Phillips;
Conservative – Mark Weston (not present – sore throat);
UKIP – Aaron Warren-Foote (not present – milking cows)
What has Sue achieved in the last four years? £5,000 is anti-democratic, way too expensive a deposit to stand for PCC; Why should people vote for each candidate? £60m of cuts – 700 officers gone; Police are dealing with mentally ill more and more, especially out of hours – how will PCCs improve this situation? Austerity and ideological cuts by Tories; Unfortunately Mark Weston could not be here to explain the wisdom or otherwise. Does the 'Prevent Strategy' work? Predictive policing, clip of Nahella Ashraf from 'Manchester Stand Up To Racism' discussing Muslims feeling targeted, freedom of speech, body cams; What will candidates do about erosion of 'neighbourhood policing' or 'policing by consent'? Police stations closing, cyber crime, drug gangs, neighbourhood watch; Will candidates deal with white collar crime? Clip of Ian Fraser discussing impunity of bankers, Blue Arrow trial in 1993 followed by Section 166 of the The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 formally put bankers and the establishment above the law?
