A ‘phalanx of stale, male and pale’ PCC candidates is almost inevitable The Guardian (blog) Home secretary and equalities minister Theresa May has come under fire for failing to highlight the potential appeal of the new police and crime commissioner (PCC) posts to women. More than 80% of the 130 confirmed candidates fighting the first elections for police commissioners on 15 November are male. However, more women might have stood if they realised skills such as consulting and negotiating were at the top of the list, rather than the emphasis being put on a search for former senior military or police chiefs, according to Vera Baird QC, the Labour candidate for Northumbria.
