    The very low turn-out demonstrates what an utter shambles and waste of money this whole process has been. The government has got this totally wrong and demonstrates how out of touch they are.
    The low turn-out in Coventry (10.54%) probably illustrates how difficult it will be for one individual to represent all people in such a large policing area.

  2. Mark says:

    Great shame that party political affiliation was allowed in this election.
