CLEVELAND
Middlesbrough councillor Sajaad Khan is running for the Labour ticket, along with his council colleague Barry Coppinger, who sat on the police authority for eight years.

The area’s two independent elected mayors could both be contenders. Stuart Drummond, mayor of Hartlepool, told me a few weeks ago that he hadn’t even thought about it yet.  A spokesman for Ray Mallon, the mayor of Middlesbrough (and a former police inspector) said it was 50-50 whether he’d stand.  Under the rules either man could carry on being mayor as well as serve as elected police commissioner.

Ray Mallon as police commissioner for Cleveland.  Cat, meet pigeons.

GREATER MANCHESTER

Former drag queen and English Democrat parliamentary candidate Michael Felse plans to run as an Independent.

(facepalm)

These are intended to be people with real power.  I don't want my police force to be run by a drag act.

There cannot have been a by-election here, as I didn't see an Andrew Teale writeup on it. Or else that by-election's validity should be challenged on the grounds that it was held without Andrew's written approval

Tony Lloyd selected as Labour candidate for Greater Manchester:

Does he have to stand down as an MP to stand or only if he wins?

I think Labour NEC (actually one of its subcommittees) decided last week that their MPs selected as PC (or Mayoral) candidates will have to stand down before the election

OK, so we have a Manchester Central by-election to look forward to.  My guess would be that Labour's plan will be to hold it on the same day as the Police Commissioner election in November.

The Police Foundation has a list of speculated/confirmed/shortlisted candidates:
http://www.police-foundation.org.uk/files/POLICE0001/policy%20work/PCC%20candidates.pdf

The information seems most comprehensive about Labour.  I presume we will actually have non-Labour candidates in South Yorks, though whether there are any who are more than paper candidates remains to be seen.

Just voted online, forgot today was the ballot deadline!

Voted for Jane Kennedy, not that i'm enthusiastic for either candidate. I'll be living at uni in November anyway.

I think they moved the deadline to Friday (at least they did it for NEC/NPF elections). LabourList thinks PC results will be available on Sunday (they will be announced by the regional parties, so they won't pop up all together at the same time).

One person trying to get the Labour nomination in South Yorkshire (where you have to assume that the Labour nomination is a pretty good start at winning the election) is former Chief Constable of the force Meredydd Hughes.

Rotherham Cllr Shaun Wright has won Labour nomination today.
Harriet Yeo (Ashford Cllr/NEC member in the trade union section) has won the Kent selection

All Labour results now in.

It was much closer for Michael Sr than Michael Jr.
Former MPs trying a comeback: Prescott, Jane Kennedy (who beated Peter Kilfoyle), Vera Baird (the Redcar one), Paddy Tipping (close result in Nottinghamshire), James Plaskitt.
2 sitting MPs going for it: Alun Michael and Tony Lloyd.

Women in winnable areas: Jane Kennedy, Sarah Russell, Vera Baird..and I think that's it. Ken may be a step still too far for Labour.

Some were a bit surprised by Jones beating Mosquito in West Midlands but I think she got very few votes outside Birmingham and I wouldn't be surprised if not all Birmingham communities supported her.

No one's, unless you're using a rather odd definition of "bright".

Wow. This might be even stupider than electing judges. The only other office I've heard that it's even stupider to elect that some places do is coroner (even more amusingly it's sometimes a partisan position, just like this.)

The way things are going in Dyfed Powys Nicholas Bourne (Con) Christine Gwyther (Lab) Helen Mary Jones (Plaid) James Adams (Ind) I am getting more and more tempted to cast the ultimate spolit ballot

First Preference: Adams 4 Bourne 4 Gwyther 4 Mary Jones 4
Second Preference: Adams 4 Bourne 4 Gwyther 4 Mary Jones 4

In other words, these elections should be scrapped the whole leglisation reviewed in Parliament as soon as possible

I'm opting for abstention, in the hope that ridiculously low turnouts will discredit them (if they even need to be).

It is incredibly stupid, but perhaps not quite as incredibly so as it might look to American eyes: the position being elected is to be responsible for oversight of local policing policy, and not the equivalent of a police commissioner in America (or, you know, London).

The Labour candidate in Avon and Somerset has been forced to withdraw because of two minor offences he was convicted of at the age of 13, 46 years ago.

I tend to think that the position should be open to ex-cons only.
