BREAKING NEWS: Katy Bourne interviewed under caution by the IPCC.

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne, is the first elected PCC in British history to be interviewed under caution by the IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission) in relation to a criminal offence.

Holding on for dear life, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Katy Bourne contemplates her drop from public office as she hangs precariously atop a 115 foot drop down Peacehaven Cliffs.

Hanging on by a thread to her position as Sussex's first elected PCC, Katy Bourne is facing the real possibility of a criminal conviction and spending the Christmas season in prison.

Grateful for the support of her Chief Constable Giles York and international crime writer Peter James, Katy Bourne is relying on an intensive public relation campaign of charitable works, (namely abseiling down the 115 foot cliff face of Peacehaven Heights in aid of the Queen Alexandra Hospital Home in Worthing, which cares for disabled ex-servicemen and women,) to defect attention away from the on-going Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) investigation into alleged electoral fraud in the run up to the second PCC election on 5th May 2016. 
Investigated by the IPCC as to whether she knowingly posted a false declaration on Facebook, stating she had not claimed expenses during her term in office, Katy Bourne has been fortunate that a compliant press haven't asked the serious questions which, if asked, would ultimately end her fledging political career in a heart-beat.

Take for example the confession by Graham Kane, Katy Bourne's Performance and Information Manager, who conceded on the 15th March 2016 that, "the PCC has not claimed any expenses since September 2013;" contrary to the statement Katy Bourne made on the 4th of May 2016 (the day before the PCC elections) that "I have not claimed any allowances or expenses during my term in office," (a term which started in November 2012) clearly demonstrating that someone is lying...

While many commenters have dismissed the IPCC investigation as irrelevant and a vendetta by a member of the public against Katy Bourne, the seriousness cannot be under estimated. Perceived by many as a symbol of corruption within the ranks of Sussex Police, Katy Bourne has been compared to the 1950's Chicago gangster Al Capone, who was finally brought to justice by a tax evasion offence, rather than any murder or racketeering crimes he was so famous for committing.

Having admitted on her Twitter feed that her favourite show on TV is 'Boardwalk Empire', an American period crime drama about a politician/gangster, Katy Bourne finds herself in a similar position of being investigated for expense irregularities, when her critics claim she should be investigated for the more serious offences of failing to hold the Chief Constable to account, covering up police corruption, elderly abuse, theft of government money and accessory to murder (to name a few).

Referred for investigation by the IPCC by Sussex Police and the Sussex Crime Panel, demonstrates the seriousness of Katy Bourne's situation. If it's found that the intention of her sponsored Facebook post was to influence the outcome of the Sussex PCC elections, then she would be found guilty of a criminal breach of section 106 of the Representation of the People Act 1983, in which its an offence to make a false statement for the purpose of affecting the election of any candidate as Police and Crime Commissioner.
  • Foremost on Katy Bourne's mind at the moment, is the inconvenient truth that PCC's are only referred to the IPCC when there is an indication of a possible criminal offence.
  • Tough at the top, but even harder coming down, Katy Bourne is facing the real possibility of being the first PCC in the country to be convicted over a criminal offence.
Adding to her woes is the reinstatement of the website which was removed after the office of the Sussex PCC, complained to Google's Blogger Team, that the blog constituted 'harassment' against Katy Bourne.

The blog site has subsequently been reinstated in light of the IPCC investigation, which proves that any allegations that Katy Bourne lied about her expenses claims, was warranted as being in the public interest.

Its now clear that a concerted effort was made by both the office of Sussex PCC and Sussex Police, to shut down the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner blog, to limit any damage the IPCC investigation would do to Katy Bourne's position as PCC and her prospects as a raising star in the Conservative Party. 

A Freedom of Information request reveals what a Case Administrator from the Sussex Criminal Justice Unit of Sussex Police had to say about it, "I saw the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner blog has been removed? Has the youtube been taken down as well? Thank God after all the work!"

Boasting of her connection to serving and ex-serving men and women, by saying, "As the wife of a Falklands veteran, and the granddaughter of a First World War soldier of the Royal Sussex Regiment, showing support for all the men and women who serve our country is close to my heart," Katy Bourne belies a desperate attempt to paint herself whiter than white, when in truth her husband, Kevin Bourne was labeled 'Stupid Banker of the Day' by the Green Hell Blog, for losing $15 billion of shareholders investment while a banker for the HSBC Bank.
Accused of being two faced, Katy Bourne publicly champions the victims of crime, while simultaneously turning her back on the victims of Sussex Police crime, evident by her involvement in the erection of a 1.8 meter high fence outside the property along the coast road in Peacehaven, which had a slogan written across it's frontage accusing Sussex Police of covering-up the 1996 murder of Katrina Taylor.
The erection of the fence, funded trilaterally between Lewes District Council, Sussex Police and the Office of PCC, enabled criminals with links to the renowned Sussex Crime Lord Mark Slade aka Marcel Sulc, to approach the property hidden from public view and attack disabled OAP David Joe Neilson, leaving him for dead, himself the main eye witness in the 1996 Katrina Taylor murder, which he alleges is being covered by Sussex Police; a cover-up which continues today.
While Katy Bourne promises a "commitment to transparency", the truth is she hasn't yet publicly commented on the IPCC investigation against her. Regardless of the outcome, Katy Bourne will be the first elected PCC in British history to be questioned under caution by the IPCC for a criminal offence. 
  • Whether Katy Bourne wants to admit it or not; she's in very serious trouble and she knows it.
In much the same manner as ex Prime Minister David Cameron resigned as an MP the day before the Foreign Affairs committee slammed him for the rise of ISIS, the influx of immigrants into Europe and the pursing chaos in Libya; Katy Bourne resigned as School Governor of the Oriel High School in Crawley after nine years, three days before the news broke of her IPCC investigation.
  • The present Prime Minister Theresa May finds herself embroiled in Katy Bourne's expense scandal too, having endorsed her in the run-up to the second PCC elections in 2016.
The video below shows a satirical look at Theresa May's endorsement, over-laid with various reasons why Katy Bourne shouldn't be elected SPCC. The reasons promoted during the video have proved to be true and accurate. 

Its interesting to note that the original and untainted video of Theresa May endorsing Katy Bourne has now been removed. The bottom line is that the UK's Prime Minister has endorsed a criminal to be elected as the Sussex PCC.

Asked whether Katy Bourne should stand down from her various positions as Chairwoman of the National Police ICT Board, the Non-Executive Director of the College of Policing and the SPCC, the response are as follows:
