Following the news that the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) have referred Katy Bourne, the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (SPCC) to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for committing a criminal offence under section 106 of the Representation of People Act 1983; means her contention that 80% of the Sussex electorate agreed to her most recent 5% rise in police tax, is deemed null and void and must be stopped immediately.
Katy Bourne is under investigation for the criminal offence of making a false statement during an election to influence it's outcome. While the CPS conduct their investigation, Katy Bourne must be suspended from duties with immediate effect.
(What makes you think she hasn't made a false statement with reference to the poll's result, to influence it's outcome?)
"I challenge the poll figures."
A gentleman called Geoffrey Madden has publicly complained that he was unable to make his wishes known to the Office of Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, hence his opposition to the tax rise was not counted. (how many others attempted to voice their opposition to the tax increase but were unable to?)
Geoffrey asks fellow Sussex voters to register their count, if they attempted to leave their opinion on the Sussex PCC website, but wasn't able to.
“I challenge the poll figures,” says Geoffrey Madden
Katy Bourne is quoted to have said, "If the public do not want it then I will not bring it in."
The 80% figure of consent which Katy Bourne quoted to the Sussex Police Crime Panel is not reflected in the public comments left on a variety of news articles, published with reference to the tax increase. The nature of the negative responses imply 99% of Sussex residents are against the police tax increase.
Again Katy Bourne has been accused of electoral fraud, and considering she is now being investigated for electoral fraud by the CPS; doesn't it imply that her decision to raise the police tax is also based on equally fraudulent information?

Whilst I find absolutely no pleasure whatsoever in highlighting this very serious and dangerous matter, it is of course naturally only correct that the mainstream media release the details around the topic and subject of the very reason of why the IPCC have handed the file over to the CPS for their consideration, where quite likely the matter could end up being placed before a “Criminal Crown Court” in the not to distant future, as the matter has been deemed a potential criminal offence.
