Election statement:

Prepared by Paul Bullen, 48, Stirling Rd, St Ives, Cambs.

Paul has been a magistrate for 13 years and understands, more than anyone, the pressures of policing law and order. He says, “Every crime is a failure of policing.” We will put more police on the beat. We want to see strong, tough laws imposed on those who steal and those who threaten life or property.

Like the rest of the United Kingdom Independence Party, Paul’s values are straight-dealing, integrity, plain-speaking, honesty, and forthright defence of law-abiding people. We want to see a Police Force which can manage its budget. We don’t want to see companies like G4S taking over police duties because we don’t believe any confidential facts are safe with them.

The United Kingdom Independence Party wants to see a Commissioner who isn’t tied to any form of ‘party politics’ or ‘party whip’. Paul is, therefore, truly Independent and able to act how you, the law-abiding public, want. We would support the idea of an elected Police Board and this is the first step.

Paul was an Officer in the RAF for 20 years and now has his own Cambridgeshire based business. He is a qualified Aeronautical Engineer, a Pilot and a Marine Surveyor. Like the rest of the Party, Paul sees deep unfairness in allowing the European Courts to send British citizens to rough justice abroad whilst allowing known-terrorists to flout deportation back to the Middle East. He believes that the Human Rights Act is not ‘fit for purpose’ and should be fundamentally changed.

Independent Police and Crime Commissioner is a big job. It needs vision, competence and common sense. It is not a job for the faint-hearted but for someone with a track-record of punishing criminals and a man who has inner conviction and true integrity.
