    No. But I don't want them answering to political stooges either. They should be answerable to a open process.

    I don't believe politicians are any longer answerable to the people either. Because at most elections we are now given a choice between a smack in the mouth or a kick in the balls. We could make politicians more answerable by adding 'none of the above' to ballot papers so it is possible for informed people to let them know they don't like any of the choices they offer.

    Within my lifetime we have seen them gradually erode trust in the democratic process and they won't instil it with their infighting, their failure to look outside their own bubble and their focus on their own dogma and donors.
    Good point, well made"

PLANS to recruit 100 new police officers have been announced today, Friday.

However, numbers at Cheshire Police are due to drop overall from 1,956, to 1,900, by March next year.

John Dwyer, Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, said 100 officers are being recruited to replace existing cops who are due to leave or retire - they are not additional roles.

Mr Dwyer said: "A recruitment campaign will be launched on May 12, and I want to raise the bar and recruit 100 new officers by the end of March next year, which is higher than I had originally planned.”

Anyone wishing to reply is required to have completed the certificate of knowledge in policing, or the foundation degree in policing, law and investigation.

Applications open on May 12.
