Spoil paper to show your feelings
The Hillsborough inquiry has shown the need to hold the police to account, but there is no reason to suppose that the election of police commissioners will bring that about.
There will be no such election in London because there is already an elected mayor of London with equivalent powers.
Yet after deaths at the hands of the police in London, such as Jean Charles de Menezes or Ian Tomlinson, no police officer has been held to account either for causing the deaths or for putting out stories known to be false intended to cast the blame on the victim. The mayor of London either doesn't have the power, or does not wish to use it.
A Leicestershire police commissioner is likely to be just as useless, despite the Mercury's recommendation to us to vote.

On November 15, electors should turn out to the polling station, but not to vote for any of the candidates. Instead they should spoil their ballot papers to show that they regard the exercise as pointless.
