For the reasons given here, I’ve focused almost exclusively on the important election on 15 November. But there is another one.
And if you consider that the Police Commissioner elections are a waste of time and money but you don’t want to spoil your ballot, there is a choice.
Because there’s one sure-fire way of avoiding a repeat of these elections in four or five years’ time.
There are no Police Commissioner elections in Scotland or Northern Ireland because policing and criminal justice are devolved.
Only one candidate in this other election is committed to the devolution of policing and criminal justice to Wales, a policy supported by a majority of the Welsh public.
That candidate is Michael Baker.
