Blogger in Need – A Special Appeal by Matt Taylor

No one likes to be silenced, ignored and put into a corner!

I’ve been blogging since 2012 and across my three top blog platforms, I’ve attracted over 3 million views, having posted about 2,000 blogs. A top writer in the alternative media, I’m making my own contribution in bringing the sick and evil regime which controls our lives, to it’s knees.

Which brings me to my Blogger in Need Appeal

Sussex Police in conjunction with Katy Bourne, their Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) have banned my blog on grounds of harassment.


Nothing could be further from the truth

It all started when I called Katy Bourne a liar. Which is my God given right to do so, considering on the day before the 2016 PCC election she wrote on a sponsored Facebook post; that she’s never “claimed for expenses during her term in office.”

I know its a blatant lie because her office publicly published her expense claims which shows that she had indeed claimed expenses while during her term in office.

What would you have done?

Katy Bourne is paid £85,000 a year to hold the Chief Constable to account, to set the police priorities and to administer a £250 million budget. Can she be trusted with this immense responsibility while she lies about £385 worth of expenses?

According to the official definition of harassment, anyone can call another person a liar if;

  1. Its the truth

  2. Its a honest opinion

  3. Its exposing a crime

I tick all these boxes…

Its the truth, so much so that the Independent Police Complaint’s Commission (IPCC) have launched a criminal investigation into Katy Bourne, which is on-going and is expected to report it’s findings soon.

Its in my honest opinion because when I first discovered Katy Bourne had claimed expenses, (after promising the public she wouldn’t), I wrote her an email highlighting this error, to which she acknowledged her “error” and refunded a £322 train fare to Birmingham.

I’m exposing a crime, because as the IPCC investigation acknowledges; to make a false statement to influence a PCC election is a criminal breach of s106 of the Representation of the Peoples Act 1983.

As I’ve made clear on many occasions. I have not harassed anyone. I have simply delivered an extra layer of public scrutiny, which Katy Bourne welcomed when she pledged her Oath of Office.

This isn’t about me, its about victims of police crime

Since taking on the mantle of Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (SSPCC) following the election of Katy Bourne in 2012, many people have approached me with their stories of police corruption; which have all been chronicled and reported on the SSPCC blog platform.

  • David Joe Neilson; who remains in hiding because he’s too scared to return home in fear he’s killed.
  • John Lenard Walson; whose historical child-abuse has been covered-up by Sussex Police, which means he cannot claim the compensation he’s rightly entitled to.
  • Julliette; who Sussex Police turned their back on, and lost her family home of 20 years, due to the fraudulent actions of her dead ex husband.
  • Brian Setchfield; who witnessed a possible murder at a Hasting police station, but who has since been ignored when making enquires into the police crimes committed on that day.
  • John Paterson; jailed for 6 weeks at Lewes Prison for exposing police brutality after being arrested, assaulted and jailed for no legal reason.


The fact that my blog has been banned, means that these stories have been banned too.

My SSPCC blog was originally banned in July 2016; but I successfully argued for it to be reinstated due to the IPCC investigation, which vindicated my claims Bourne lied to the public.

Now rather than approach me personally, Bourne, the Police and Mark Streater (her number one) prefer to complain about me behind my back, and use more devious means to silence me.


You wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the 24 cases of misconduct Streater investigated in relation to Sussex Police; he found all 24 cases to be ‘unsubstantiated,’ requiring no further action.

I think he banned my SSPCC blog in July 2016 because he knew the IPCC were about to launch an investigation, and the publicity their announcement would bring, would entice the public to Google Katy Bourne, which would show up the hundreds of blogs I’ve written about her; and as a result would cut short her fledging career.
In-fact since the announcement was made by the IPCC, dozens of news outlets reported on it, including the BBC, Sky News and the Police Oracle; not including the dozens of Sussex based newspapers and on-line magazines.
Its interesting to note, that many of these articles have now been removed. As one member of the public points out:
All and any mention of Katy Bourne has been wiped clean from the UK Blasting News platform, leaving the BBC the only one whose article remains.
A complaint that the electorate was misled over the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner’s expenses is being investigated by the police watchdog.

Since getting my blog back up and running, I thought I’d won and that it’ll be the end of it…

Hence I posted a further three blogs calling into question the involvement of Sussex Police in the 2015 Shoreham air-show crash and the 2016 Camber Sands tragedy.


While some people, like Andy Morton for example thinks it’s best to ‘simply’ label me a ‘crackpot conspiracists’ and deny me the ‘oxygen of publicity’; the truth remains that I’m flagging up pertinent and important issues.

Using underhand techniques to silence me will back fire.

Sussex Police have banned a blog on grounds of harassment against Katy Bourne, the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (SPCC)
I need everyone who reads this to share it, please. We need to show Sussex Police that banning any blog (which criticises their actions) is not acceptable.
Once we lose our freedom of speech and expression, then we have lost our Soul. Our essence of being and our reason for being.
I blog about Katy Bourne and Sussex Police because I am seeing glaring discrepancies in what they do and say; which other journalists aren’t picking up on.
I still find it unbelievable that I’m the only person in Sussex to pick up on her expenses discrepancy.  The so-called Fourth Estate is failing in it’s duty to hold elected officials to account.
  • First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.
  • Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
  • Then they came for the blogger, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a blogger.
  • Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.



The brainwashing techniques used by the Conservative government against the British people for the last 5 years has worked a treat.

Katy Bourne, the ex pole dancing instructor turned Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner is being praised for her “hard” and “thankless” task of being a Police and Crime Commissioner.


Admittedly the person who tweeted the remark also describes David Cameron’s performance at the dispatch box as “Phenomenal”, and as such cannot be considered of sound mind, but still his remark reveals a far more disturbing picture of the brainwashed Conservative voters of Sussex.


let-them-eat-cake-katy-bourneKaty Bourne is the first to admit the only reason she’s a Police and Crime Commissioner is because she’s the Conservative candidate. She admitted it on camera when she stopped an old lady in the street to tell her who she is.

The old lady asked what political party she represented and having answered “Conservative,” the old lady promised her her vote.

“Yes, that’s why I’m the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner,” Katy Bourne confirmed.

But to describe Katy Bourne’s job as the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner as “hard” and “thankless,” is dumb, stupid and sycophant all rolled into one.

It’s interesting Katy Bourne isn’t keen on correcting the numb skull who tweeted it. It’s all part of the brainwashing technique employed by the County’s Conservatives to perpetuate the myth that what they do is “hard” and “thankless”.

For example Simon Kirby, MP for Brighton Kemptown never stops chanting the hypnotic mantra that he “works hard for the hard working people of Brighton.” In truth the only organisation he works hard for in the Conservative Party.

Let’s not forget that Katy Bourne is paid £85K a year for a three day a week job. That she has a team of 17 people costing a further £1 million a year to the tax payer to do the work for her and that she gets thousands of pounds in gifts and hospitalities.

Hardly “hard” and “thankless”, wouldn’t you agree?

Now if you want to talk about a “hard” and “thankless” job, look no further at the role of Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner.

Just as the Shadow Prime Minister of Great Britain, Jeremy Corbyn, is told to “put on a proper suit, do up your tie and sing the national anthem” by the necrophile David Cameron; as the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner I’m similarly treated with distain by being totally ignored by the people I’m working to help.

I’m as human as the next man and it hurts when I see prospective police and crime commissioner candidates being given free publicity in the local newspapers and on Latest TV, when I get nothing.

The latest candidate to put his hat into the SPCC ring is Labour Councillor Michael Jones.

He’s got his mention in the Crawley Observer newspaper:

Ben Duncan has had his mention in the Brighton and Hove newspaper and an appearance on The Latest TV’s The Vote Show hosted by Frank Le Duc:

The UKIP candidate Patrick Lowe is mentioned in the West Sussex Times:

The Lib Dem candidate James Walsh is mentioned in the Mid Sussex Times:

Not one mention about my candidacy anywhere???


Upon watching Frank Le Duc interview Ben Duncan on The Vote Show, I contacted the founder of Latest TV Bill Smith to ask him if I’d ever be given the same privilege as all the other candidates.

He replied saying I should email both Mike Mendoza and Tim Ridgway.

Mike Mendoza replied:

I am presenting the vote next Monday 29th, and of course on the daily news show. I will get back to you with a time etc.”

And Tim Ridgway tweeted in reply:


To be honest; I’ve given up asking Latest TV and the local newspapers to report on my PCC candidacy.

I got the same treatment during the Brighton Kemptown general election of 2015:

  • Mike Mendoza invited me onto his show AFTER the election, giving me the opportunity of introducing myself to the voters.
  • The Argus newspaper didn’t mention my name in their two page spread on the Brighton Kemptown candidates.
  • Mike Gibson, the editor of The Argus didn’t invite me to their Argus Hustings, in which all the other candidates were invited.
  • No one invited me to the Peacehaven College husting when every other candidate was invited.
  • Frank Le Duc didn’t invite me onto The Vote Show while every other candidate appeared.
  • My election campaign office was attacked by crooks and Sussex Police turned their backs calling it a civilian matter.

Its worthy of note that David Neilson remains in hiding too scared to return to his home.

I could go on but even I’m getting bored now!

I’m convinced (having experienced democracy both as a voter and a parliamentary candidate) that corruption is dripping down from the very top of British society. When I say the very top, I’m not mincing my words, I mean Royalty.

The Crown is seeped in fraud, perversion and corruption. Any hope of a just and sound Britain can only happen with a British style revolution.

I thought I could change the system from working within the machine but I now realise how naive I’ve been. I’ve always been a outsider and I’ll remain on the outside looking in.

Suffice to say, its a thankless task but I will continue to serve the people of Sussex in my capacity as Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (free of charge) for as long as victims of police corruption continue to contact me.

Take for example the latest request for assistance I received on Saturday 27 February 2016.

Dear Matt,

I would like you help if possible to expose Sussex police for what they have done to myself a disabled women and my children.

My ex-partner who abused all of us took out a fraudulent mortgage and Sussex police have done nothing.

They have wasted hours of my time and I have had to make complaints that aren’t dealt with and 1 has been going on for 2 years.

They took on a perjury crime and showed me the paperwork to state they had to deal with this crime then suddenly ignored my contact and then wrote to say they wouldn’t deal with this matter.

My ex-partner was a heavy drinker and smoker and died in August 2015 of lung cancer. Now the bank who know the mortgage my ex-partner took out is fraudulent are trying to take our home of 20 years away.

Solicitors say it is a criminal offence but I can’t deal with Sussex police as I feel that there is total corruption going on.

Please can you help myself and my children.”

Its a thankless task but someone has got to hold Sussex Police to account and expose the corruption which runs deeps in the heart of Sussex Police.

One thing is for sure; Katy Bourne (paid £85K a year plus perks) certainly isn’t going to do it…



Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner – Vote for Matt Taylor 2016.


matt taylor outside bevy
Matt Taylor SPCC Candidate 2016

My name is Matt Taylor and I’m the independent candidate for the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner elections on the 5th May 2016.


I’m the one candidate which Sussex Police is scared of and whom Katy Bourne fears the most.

I seem to be able to accuse Sussex Police of criminality with impunity.

I can say what I want against Sussex Police with impunity because I’m telling the Truth…

Both Sussex Police and Katy Bourne know that once my name is on the SPCC ballot paper, I will beat Katy Bourne hands down and be voted the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner with a landslide.

I’ve done more to hold Sussex Police than anyone else in Sussex.”
Just as in the Brighton Kemptown 2015 General Election, all the stops were pulled out to stop me from getting the coverage and exposure I deserved and was entitled to.

Under the editorial-ship of Mike Gibson, The Argus newspaper failed to mention me as a Parliamentary candidate and failed to invite me to their Argus Hustings to which every other parliamentary candidate was invited.

Read more:

The same is happening again now.

Patrick Lowe, the UKIP candidate declared his intention to stand and news is spread far and wide throughout Sussex:

The Lib Dems declared their candidate, James Walsh and news is spread far and wide throughout Sussex too.

The same with Ben Duncan, the Green Party candidate.

I declared my intention to stand over three months ago and nothing has been reported since.

Katy Bourne lied to @PPCWatch about my declaration to stand when in truth she knew very well I intend to stand.


The best I get is a heavily redacted BBC radio interview by political reporter Ben Weisz, in which he got his facts wrong by firstly saying one of my promotional SPCC Youtube videos had been removed due to its content material (when it hadn’t been) and that I was guilty of satirizing a minor (when the person in question was 19 years old – officially an adult.)

Is it cos I’m Black?”

If I never had such thick skin, I’d start to feel paranoid and believe in a conspiracy theory that everyone in Sussex were ganging up on me to keep my message suppressed and my chances of winning the SPCC to an absolute minimum.

Read more: I hate being a Conspiracy Theorist.

I’ve done more than anyone to hold Sussex Police to account than anyone in Sussex. Having spent the last four years writing more than anyone in Sussex about police corruption and the failings of Katy Bourne, which only now are The Argus newspaper waking up to.

Read more:

The figures tell the story themselves. Thousands of people are aware of the corruption in Sussex Police and the failings of Katy Bourne but no one seems to be bothered about it.


Take the sorrowful excuse of a journalist, Latest TV The Vote frontman Frank De Luc. When Katy Bourne was on his The Vote show, he brought up the subject that there had been a ‘trend’ of police officers retiring early to escape misconduct charges and keep their police pensions. Katy Bourne even agreed with his statement.

Any other journalist would have asked the obvious follow up question; Why did Martin Richards retire early then?


History is repeating itself.
As during the Brighton Kemptown 2015 General Election, all the stops are being pulled out to stop me getting the coverage and exposure I deserve and entitled to.

Read more:

Both Sussex Police and Katy Bourne are scared shitless of me becoming the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner.

And good reason too:
One of the first things I’d do as Sussex Police Crime Commissioner will be to sack Chief Constable Giles York and his deputy Olivia Pinkney.

Katy Bourne is suffering sleepless nights fearing she’ll lose the privileged position of SPCC, which will have the knock on effect of scuppering her plans of a higher political office, possibly even following in her role model Theresa May’s footsteps of becoming Home Secretary.

They are scared shitless of me being voted Sussex Police Crime Commissioner because I’m the only candidate who has proven to have the skills, passion and dedication to:

  • Hold Sussex Police to Account.
  • Set the Police Priorities.
  • Set the Police Precept.

I’ve demonstrated I am the REAL DEAL and have got what it takes to turn Sussex Police around.


Citizen on Patrol Units (C.O.P) based on US/Canadian models.

Made up of volunteers from the community, they will have the full support of Sussex Police but without the powers of arrest.

I will aim to create 70 units across Sussex, amounting to about 1800 volunteers, devoting 135,000 hours per year.

These police volunteers will be brought together from all walks of life, ages and backgrounds. Each patrol will be identified by a simple uniform, made up of patrols of two. Training and equipment will be provided by Sussex police and the £30 criminal record search will be waived for all C.O.P volunteers.

Each volunteer will devote shifts of 2-3 hours once a week. They will be community minded, nice people, positive role models, keeping their families and neighbourhoods safe.

As a Police Chief from America told me, ’That’s a great deal of ”eyes and ears” time that can assist the police to solve problems, as well as freeing their time to work on more serious issues.’


I will create an Elite Anti-Corruption Unit (A.C.U), made up of the best police officers in Sussex and my old buddies from the Royal Military Police. The unit will be mandated to investigate corrupt MP’s, Council members and police officers. They will be armed if need be, and answer only to me. I will introduce Computer Stress Voice analysis (C.V.S.A) as a tool against corruption. I will commend good police officers, attracting them from across the nation.

I will not hesitate to sack the Chief Constable at the first whiff of corruption.


A new complaints system, called Complaints Against Sussex Police (C.A.S.P), it will be totally transparent and used to clean up the corruption in Sussex Police and Sussex Police Authority. The Sussex Police Professional Standards will be disbanded. Complaint forms will be accessible on-line and via police stations and council offices. All interviews with police officers and complainants will be videoed to ensure total transparency. People will still be able to log complaints via the I.P.C.C but considering their track record, I doubt if many people will.


As your Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner I’ll make Sussex Police the police force of choice for the best police officers in the country to join.

Sussex is a beautiful county offering a standard of living up there with the best places on Earth. Our police force must reflect this.

With a clean police force, corrupt free; the best police officers will be attracted to Sussex; to relocate their families; to build a life and career in a police force which rewards hard work, diligence and common-scene.

Brighton must now longer be the City of choice for Crime Lords to live and raise their families. We must retake what is ours and put it back into the hands of law-abiding citizens and brilliant police officers.

A quote from Peter James, Best selling Crime writer and friend of Sussex Police:
Three previous chief constables have told me that Brighton today is the favourite place to live for Premier League criminals.”

rachel-peter (1)


With me at the helm of holding the Chief Constable to account, setting the police priorities and setting the police precept, Sussex Police officers can get on with the job of serving and protecting the hardworking and law abiding residents of Sussex, doing what police officers do best.

By implementing the recommendations of the 2013 Drugs Commission Report, I can free the police’s responsibility of cleaning up the streets of beggars and drug/alcohol addicts by centralizing the distribution point of their drugs, and putting the care of these vulnerable people back into the hands of the professionals, charities and institutions who are better skilled and equipped in resolving their issues and problems.

This goes for prostitution too. Its an acknowledgement that the police are losing the war on prostitution in the same way they’ve lost the war on drugs. Its better to reprioritize the efforts of the police to concentrate on serious crime; assaults, rape, burglary, drink/drug driving, child-abuse, rather than interfering in a financial transaction between two consulting adults in the pursuit of financial reward and sexual gratification and satisfaction.

After-all its hypocrisy in the most extreme to arrest prostitutes when police officers within Sussex Police use their services on a regular basis.

The choice is yours but if you want me to be your Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, you’ll have to donate the £5000 I need as a deposit to stand in the election.




Sussex Police find themselves facing multiple negative news headlines yet again. Is it any wonder considering the police force is riddled with corruption and incompetence, with a Police and Crime Commissioner with zero experience of policing but plenty of experience pole dancing?

Its all about Priorities.

Ex-pole-dancing instructor Katy Bourne is tasked as the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner to set the priorities for Sussex Police.

Evident by the recent Argus newspaper headlines, Katy Bourne is showing her true Conservative colours by coming down hard on the most needy in society and allowing the most vile and criminal to go about their business in complete safety.

As the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (who’s done more than anyone in Sussex to hold Sussex Police to account) I often resort to satire as a reflection of the anger and frustration I feel being ignored and side-lined by Sussex Police and the Sussex press.

Within month’s of Katy Bourne being elected I posted a cutting edge satirical graphic accusing Katy Bourne of making Sussex safer for paedophiles and Freemasons.

facebook farce

I’ve been proved right with the news that Sussex Police are knocking on the doors of paedophiles suspected of viewing indecent images of children to warn them they are being monitored.

I’ve accused Sussex Police of aiding and abetting criminals and I’ve been proved correct after its been revealed Sussex Police officers have visited 24 homes since November 2015, to urge suspected paedophiles to stop viewing the images, often handing over warning letters.

Make no mistake that downloading child pornography is illegal and against the Law. (The Protection of Children Act 1978 to be precise.)

Katy Bourne has make it safer for paedophiles in Sussex by warning them that the police are on their case and their arrest is imminent.

Its all about Priorities.

While on the other side of the coin undercover Sussex Police officers are being sent out to catch homeless people begging with more than one arrested every week.

This is the madness of Sussex Police laid to bare for everyone to see.

As the Argus reports:

“Rough sleepers are being criminalised by Sussex Police operations to arrest and prosecute those living on the streets and desperate for small change.”

I know all about homelessness and beggars because my sister is homeless and begs on the streets of Brighton. You may have even walked past her outside the Co-op store on Lewes Road or perhaps outside the Taxi rank on Eastern Street in the centre of Brighton.

where emma sleepsRead more: My sister is Homeless. 

We’ve seen this happen before during the ITV reality show The Nick featuring Sussex Police. A dangerous rapist was on the loose and a danger to Sussex residents. On sending out a team of 5-6 police officers to apprehend the dangerous rapist, they pass a homeless heroin addict coming out of his hiding hole and decide to stop the search for the dangerous rapist and arrest the homeless beggar instead.

“Its good to nick someone you know,” the Police Sergeant said. Well as long as it isn’t a paedophile or a rapist, all is good with the world…

Its all about Priorities.

Unlike Katy Bourne who was educated at the private all-girls Roedean school, who sold her pole dancing business for a million squid and who married a stupid banker who lost $14 billion of his investors money, I know what it means to be on the receiving end of the worst which life has to offer.

Its all about Priorities.

Katy Bourne is responsible for setting the police priorities every year and she’s prioritised begging over paedophilia.

Read that again to experience the full impact of what’s going on in Sussex Police.

More resources are being put into arresting beggars than is being put into arresting paedophiles who view and download child pornography.

Damn everyone who voted Tory!

Sussex Police’s Deputy Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney is happy to admit they are soft on paedophiles, as she told The Argus: “Sometimes we can intervene very quickly and say, ‘stop doing that, we saw you did that once.’”

But God help a beggar asking for 10 pence.

As The Argus reports:

“In a recent case magistrates questioned the public interest in taking to court a rough sleeper who asked for ten pence in the street.”

Keep in mind the example above was just one of more than 16 defendants called before Brighton Magistrates’ Court in the past two months.

A total of 62 were arrested last year with each case costings the public purse more than £16,000 each.

No wonder Katy Bourne has raised the Police Tax by £10 since she was first elected.

Sussex Police defend their actions by saying they’re “forced to prioritise for arrests the cases that posed the greatest threat because the scale of indecent images online was so vast.”

The scale of indecent images viewed online is so vast because Sussex Police have historically been allowing paedophiles to get off with it scot-free.

The tactics have come under fire by critics who have questioned the “pointless system” that costs the taxpayer thousands of pounds and sees beggars fined hundreds of pounds only to have to go back on the streets.

Katy Bourne defended the tactic as “the right way” to address the problem, she said: “The reasons that people beg varies greatly. It is a complex issue which I am pleased to see Sussex Police are addressing in the right way by working closely with other support agencies.

Its all about Priorities.

I remember reporting on this back in February 2014, when Sussex Police couldn’t decide whether or not to return the child pornography pictures back to the paedophiles they seized the pictures from.

Read all about it- Sussex Police Give Back Pictures of Children to Convicted Paedophiles.

The Scale of the Problem reaches Unprecedented Levels.

Deputy Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney is quoted to have said, “There are people who are curious and frankly would be horrified if anybody ever knew. And we are very quick with those people when we know about them to say, ‘look, we know what you are doing, you know what you are doing and that is that’”.

Who would these “curious” people be who would be so “horrified if anyone ever knew?”

  • Warren Morgan, Brighton and Hove’s Labour Party Leader? He looks the type???
  • Perhaps Simon Kirby MP for Brighton Kemptown???
  • How about Nicholas Soames MP, Grandson of Winston Churchill?
  • Frank Le Duc, Brighton reporter?
  • How about Caroline Lucus, MP for Brighton Pavilion?

(Its not always men don’t you know!)

What type of person would be “horrified if anyone ever knew” they were downloading child pornography no matter how “curious” they were?

The list of suspects is endless. Freemasons maybe?

In my humble opinion anyone who is “curious” about child pornography is sick in the head and needs locking up for the benefit of society at large.

It is all really awful.”

Deputy Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney goes on to say, “There are others who are downloading images, and then there is contact offending. It is all really awful and it is about where the threat and the harm is on that continuum and that is where we try and judge where our intervention is.”

God help us and God help Sussex Police by voting me as their next Police and Crime Commissioner.

In true nasty Tory style, Sussex Police (under the stewardship of devote Tory Katy Bourne,) is prioritising begging over paedophilia.

I’ve been proved right when I accused her of making Sussex safer for Paedophiles and Freemason.


My name is Matt Taylor and I’m standing as an Independent candidate in the May 5th 2016 Police and Crime Commissioner elections.

Over the last four years I’ve done more, (in my capacity as the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner,) to hold Sussex Police to account than anyone in Sussex.

I’ve proved beyond a shadow a doubt that Katy Bourne has failed in her duties which she was elected and paid £85K a year to carry out…

Katy Bourne, Martin Richards and Giles York may consider me as a ‘conspiracy theorist’ if they want, but that’s their problem not mine. I’ve asked the questions that no one else in Sussex has had the courage or nerve to ask.

Latest TV reporter Frank Le Duc interviewed Katy Bourne and told her that there had been a trend of police officers retiring early to escape misconduct charges and to keep their police pensions, to which Katy Bourne wholeheartedly agreed.


Why is it then an unreasonable question to ask why Martin Richards retired 9 months early?

Why is it unreasonable to ask why after 24 complaints against Martin Richards (while he was Chief Constable) that all 24 were found to be “unsubstantiated,” having been investigated by Mark Streater, who himself was a Sussex Police officer of 30 years and a close personal friend of Martin Richards?


I’ve demonstrated I am the REAL DEAL and have got what it takes to turn Sussex Police around.

The choice is yours but if you want me to be your Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, you’ll have to cough up the £5000 I need as a deposit to stand in the election.




patrick-loweUKIP 2015 Moulsecoomb and Bevendean councillor candidate Patrick Lowe, is the latest to declare his intention to stand in the 2016 Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner elections.

Famous for being thrown out of a community meeting on the orders of Labour Councillor Anne Meadows for being ‘disruptive’, local printer Patrick Lowe once championed Katy Bourne in the 2012 PCC election, before deserting the Conservative Party for UKIP.

In a recent interview with BBC Sussex political reporter Ben Weisz, Lowe is quoted to have called Katy Bourne a “liquidator” of the police.

Perhaps he knows something we don’t, considering the strange anomaly that according to Companies House, the status of Sussex Police HQ stands as ‘DISSOLVED.’

Once a staunch supporter of Katy Bourne, Patrick Lowe has done what he does best and having turned coat is clearly plunging the dagger into his former friend’s back.

As we all know, a ‘Liquidator’ is a person appointed by the shareholders or unsecured creditors, to manage the winding up of a firm by selling off its assets. Who then assumes control of the business, collects and auctions off its free (un-pledged) assets in a reasonably short time, pays the unsecured creditors from the proceeds of the sale, and (if any money is left) distributes it among the shareholders in proportion to their shareholdings.

sussex police dissolved

Clearly evident that Katy Bourne has failed in her duty to hold the Chief Constable to account, useless at setting the Police Priorities and disingenuous in setting the Police Precept; it makes sense that her role has been of a ‘liquidator’ all along.

Part of her inner circle and having campaigned on her behalf during the 2012 PCC elections, Patrick Lowe would have been aware of the real agenda and having chosen his words wisely, spilled the beans to mark his first public interview declaring his intention to stand in the Sussex PCC elections.

While Patrick Lowe may complain that he’s being victimised for his ‘political beliefs,’ the truth could be as simple that he’s a turncoat and tell-tit.

With absolutely zero experience of policing its going to be interesting to see how his campaign progresses and how he performs in the coming PCC hustings.

The PCC elections are set for May 5th and nominations close on April 7th at 4pm.
