Look what's today appeared on the BBC website... a guide to the candidates standing for the position of Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner.
We have our own Kevin Carroll, who wants to tackle politically correct policing and prevent the emergence of a two tier justice system where people are treated differently because of their race, religion of political views.
Then we have Olly Martins (Labour), who seems to think that only the Labour party respects the job that frontline police officers do. Clearly he's never been to an EDL demo.
He says that he'd "work hard to build strong working partnerships across the criminal justice system and beyond to ensure victims, particularly of anti-social behaviour, are met with an effective response to their needs". In other words, he promises to work hard and make sure the police meet the needs of the victims of crime. Great... surely that's the least we'd expect from any of the candidates?
Maybe he'll have more to say soon, but at the moment there's not a lot going on at his website...
Next we have Jas Parmar (Conservative). He wants active engagement with the public and promises to make sure victims of crime are kept up-to-date with developments. Sounds good but, again, surely all the candidates would do something similar?
He has at least bothered to put on his website the reasons why he thinks he'd make a good Police and Crime Commissioner, but it all seems to be about promising to talk to 'the community' and find out what they think. That's great Jas, but what do you think?
Unlike the other candidates, Kevin Carroll has made it very clear what he stands for. He co-founded the EDL and is the joint vice chairman of the British Freedom Party. You can read about what the EDL stand for in our FAQ and Mission Statement, whilst the British Freedom website has further information about their policies and Kev's campaign.
So far it seems the choice really is very simple. If you want a candidate who can only promise to "work hard" or "engage with the public" then vote for one of the two main parties.
If, on the other hand, you'd rather help land a blow against political correctness and deliver an urgent wake-up call to the politicians, then vote for Kevin Carroll.
Some things are just too important to leave to professional politicians. Besides, they often forget what it is they were elected to do.
The EDL was born largely because the government forgot that its duties include defending this country from all enemies, domestic or foreign. So when the police force forgets that its duty is to everyone - not just to those who shout the loudest - it's just as important that someone stands forward.
Once again, that person is Kevin Carroll.
