    Let me be clear about this: I am passionately pro-European.

    I am proud that we stood by our pro-EU values throughout the Brexit process, giving voice to the millions of Remainers who didn't see themselves included in the future that Boris Johnson was trying to build.

    I could not have predicted the almighty shambles that we are seeing now with Brexit.

    Tonight, Jewish communities in the UK and around the world will mark Rosh Hashanah - the Jewish New Year.

    The Jewish High Holidays are a time of deep contemplation and self-reflection. They are an opportunity for all of us to look back on the past year as we set new goals for the future.

    This year has been particularly challenging; we have all had to adjust to new ways of living, whilst grappling with economic uncertainty.

    Most readers will not have been following the upcoming police (fire) and crime commissioner elections which are due to occur in May 2021. Though given the lack of publicity around the elections and historical turnout levels, this isn't terribly surprising.

    Police and crime commissioners first came into being in 2012. The first set of elections had a turnout of just 15.1 per cent, with the second elections in 2016 hitting the dizzy heights of a 26.6 per cent, although turnout was higher in areas with additional elections happening at the same time. With the next set of elections due in May 2021 alongside a bumper crop of other elections, the turnout should improve dramatically.
