It’s time for Ann to step down

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Lorries Slowly Destroying Grade Ii Listed Home -

Voted in by a very small num­ber of vot­ers in Kent and now pub­licly hu­mil­i­ated by that dread­ful TV doc­u­men­tary, surely the time has now ar­rived for the ubiq­ui­tous Ann Barnes to stand down, with im­me­di­ate ef­fect, and then to dis­ap­pear, with­out trace, into the bu­reau­cratic desert!

The set­backs that she has suf­fered dur­ing her short reign are all too much for the elec­tors ever to take her se­ri­ously. What her role has ever been or what it is likely to be­come, in the light of her re­ported ‘new ap­proach’, is only con­jec­ture. At a time when lo­cal and county coun­cils are be­ing pres­sured into bud­getary sav­ings, surely KCC could and should start with the po­lice com­mis­sioner role. I won­der how the Kent con­stab­u­lar­ies will re­act to that news! Colin Davis, Front Road, Wood­church
