So, Hernandez survived the DCC no confidence vote.
Hardly surprising – for the DCC majority, better a poorly-performing Tory than – well, anyone else, because she’s THEIR Police and Crime Commissioner – for now.
All Councillor Croad could say on TV was that “by and large” and “generally-speaking” she is doing an OK job. Hardly a ringing endorsement.
But this is now the third no confidence vote she has been involved in and with a fourth on the horizon when Cornwall debates the same issue soon this is an issue that isn’t going to go away.
Is the County Council holding its fire for when (which seems more likely than if) we merge with Dorset. At which point we (or someone) will have to choose between her and a highly-decorated and well-thought-of former police officer!
