Angus Young: With a month to go until police commissioner vote, the fun has only just begun
With just over a month to go until polling day, it is all kicking off in the race to become the region's first police and crime commissioner.
First, there's the question over whether John Prescott will swap his two Jags for two jobs if he wins the contest.
Some have suggested he should give up his seat in the House of Lords should be emerge victorious.
More to the point, will he give up his lucrative media work?

A quick check on the official register of Lords' interests reveals he has been paid for appearing on no fewer than eight TV and radio shows since April last year.
They ranged from Piers Morgan's Life Stories to Desert Island Discs but the list doesn't include his recent stint on All Star Mr And Mrs.
Meanwhile, Conservative candidate Matthew Grove is facing calls to do the decent thing and withdraw from the contest.
Daily Mail columnist Quentin Letts believes he should step aside to leave Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom with a Tory-free run against Prezza.
Godders, meanwhile, was hailed as "the voice of Middle England" by his party leader Nigel Farage at the recent Ukip annual conference.
Elsewhere, ex-cop Paul Davison has been busy trying to put some polite distance between himself and the East Yorkshire Independents Party who are supporting his campaign.
Election rules prevent Independent candidates such as Mr Davison from being backed by a political party.
Across in the Liberal Democrat camp, candidate Simone Butterworth has revealed her first priority if elected on November 15.
Part of the Lib Dem selection process involved her taking part in a mock "hostile media interview" conducted by a party grandee.
The first bruising question was what would she do on her first day in office.
Recalling her first TV appearance as city council leader after winning the 2002 elections in Hull, she replied: "Buy a corset."
Finally, step forward Colin Inglis as the newly-elected chairman of a panel meant to keep a beady eye on the new commissioner.
As anyone who has seen him in action will testify, no one can deliver a verbal slapping quite like our Colin.
The fun has only just begun.
