There He Goes Again!

police tapeThe incumbent Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner has been criticised again for his pre-election tactics - this time over a paid advertisement in the Conservative County Council's propaganda magazine 'Horizons'.

Lib Dem challenger Chris White said: 'This magazine, paid for by you and me out of our council tax, is already widely dismissed by the public as a Conservative publicity leaflet, featuring only positive stories about the County Council plus a column from the Conservative Leader.
'It is now being used to provide a puff for Commissioner Lloyd's sudden interest in new initiatives - no fewer than three in this edition.
'It would be somewhat naive to suggest that this is anything other than a politically questionable (albeit legal) use of public money to encourage people to vote for the incumbent.'
