  1. I am the unofficial Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner because I couldn’t bring myself to hand over £5000 off my hard earned money, with a real possibility that I’ll never see it again.

    The Conservative party paid Katy Bourne’s deposit, as did the Labour Party for Godfrey Daniel (Godfrey Daniel has publicly admitted that he couldn’t afford it himself). Ian Chisnall only paid £80 towards his deposit, with the rest coming from undeclared donations. It’s almost guaranteed that the Conservative and Labour will get their deposit back, with the prospect of getting more than 5% of the vote.
    Sadly for me it is a gamble I cannot afford to make.

    Let’s face it. The whole election has been steered towards making it impossible for independents to win.

    The minister in charge, Nick Herbert, who brought in the legislation has resigned. Actions speak louder than words and his resignation speaks volumes about this election.

    But I am passionate about policing in Sussex and I won’t let bureaucracy stand in the way of my perfect job.

    This is why I’ve declared myself as the unofficial candidate for this election, and ask voters to exercise their Guerrilla right to Democracy by registering their vote for me by spoiling their ballot papers with the letters SOS.
    Yours sincerely,
    Matt Taylor

    • Matt, I understand your frustration but I am afraid I don’t agree with what you are advising people to do…

      Boycotting the vote or spoiling the ballot paper really achieves very little in terms of protest (at best a tiny whisper that might be noticed if someone was listening out for it) and at worst lets someone else’s choice of terrible candidate in… It is also pretty easy for spoiled votes to be shrugged off as yours will be lumped together with any other deliberate or mistaken spoils – and there are often quite a few mistakes!

      I would much prefer people vote for the candidate they think has the best chance of making the PCC role work and then lobby/protest against the concept. There are petitions and plenty of advice on how best to register your displeasure: http://www.electoral-reform.org.uk/tell-your-story.

      However this site isn’t about ‘taking sides’ so your comment stands…

    • Thanks for contributing and its always good to share views. We can’t comment on their accuracy of course but our aim is to give people as much info as possible from all sources so they can make up their own minds!

    • again – sharing is encouraged, but we can’t comment on the content!!! hopefully though one individual’s view will raise questions in another’s mind and encourage them to seek answers, directly from the candidate where possible 8)
