(3) Vote Conservative... because of Chris Grayling

VoteConservativeGraylingChris Grayling is determined to press ahead with the plan for directly elected police chiefs. In the most important manifestation of David Cameron's localist agenda the police will be forced to pay much greater attention to the concerns of different communities.

Also within Grayling's brief we can expect a multi-pronged reversal of Labour's policy of uncontrolled immigration. David Cameron has promised to reduce net immigration to the levels of the 1990s; implying a 70% cut. I still hope this will be quantified before the election.

Working with Dominic Grieve we will also see the abolition of ID cards and a range of other civil libertarian measures.
