I know it’s a cheesy headline, but I could not resist.  Next Friday is my evening with the local constabulary.  And before my political opponents think I’ve charges to answer, it’s an evening accompanying them around Kirkham and Wesham and see what our local bobbies have to face.

It will also be a great chance to speak to them about any issues they have and what we can all do to help out.  Although crime is low in Fylde, it does rear its ugly head occasionally and we do have to be ready.  I’m making law and order part of my political agenda.  I want it to be tackled.

New Labour have promised so much on crime, but have they delivered?  I think not.
