Police commissioners (my blog) are a new role and while accountability is good thing rather than going to the usual suspects* that supposedly do that sort of thing these new bunch have been invisible in the public eye.
Paris Brown is the youth representative of the commissioners a job that still pays and the first to get some 4th estate column space for wrongdoings in social media in which she used her own name. Moron – call me stupid but Ms Brown made this issue and when the porn empire of mr Desmond calls her up on remarks in 140 characters its tears and tissue time nex to an responsible adult.
The adult commissioner who was a teacher also comes into the story for some reason and it appears that Ms Brown got a detention on the naughty step for thinking bad views seems a kind of duress by the establishment. Quite what the fuss is about i dont know or care about either she was too un-homophobic** or pro drugs in such a matter that one assumes would offend the species of daily mail reader. In short she is not one of them.
While the spotlight is good, it does raise questions about the calibre of humans in politics. Paris comes across as weak and perhaps not an ideal person to challenge the status quo. It appears that elected police commissioners (who?) are still not going to challenge anything like the previous thing.
* minorities (or known as the race relations industry) who made little difference over decades of being in a similair role ** the views of the daily mail and its readers are not pro alternative lifestyle.
