Simon Weston to stand as South Wales crime commissioner
Simon Weston is the kind of eminent person, respected in a way which cuts across all party and geographic boundaries. who I was hoping would come forward when I posted earlier. He is more socially conservative than my ideal commissioner but otherwise he ticks all my boxes. Let us hope that Westminster can sort out the electoral rules in the next few months before the Electoral Commission's deadline.
