Lance warned off Police Commissioner job

Tory Councillor Lance Kennedy (when he is not getting into rows with tortoises) has made it clear that he would like to be the Conservative candidate for Police Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall. But he took a bit of a kicking yesterday at the hands of Iraq war hero Colonel Tim Collins who is set to stand for the Conservatives in Kent and who was introduced to the conference stage by Home Secretary Theresa May.

Col. Collins is quoted as saying that he wanted to see ex-business and ex-military figures stand as PCC candidates, not "sunset councillors or retired policemen with axes to grind".

I'm sure he didn't mean Lance personally.
