WALTER Sweeney's entrance into the race to become the region's first police and crime commissioner is a new twist in an already gripping contest.
So far, we have seen former city council leader and police authority chairman Colin Inglis failing to make the shortlist of Labour candidates.
Then came ex-Labour MP Ian Cawsey's last-minute withdrawal from the running.
That left Lord Prescott to battle it out with former senior police officer Keith Hunter for the Labour ticket.

The former Hull East MP and Deputy Prime Minister duly won, but only just.
Meanwhile, East Riding councillor Matthew Grove remains the only would-be Conser- vative candidate to throw his hat into the ring.
Mr Sweeney will be hoping to do better than he did in the 2008 Haltemprice and Howden by-election when he came eighth and a couple of hundred votes behind Miss Great Britain and the Monster Raving Loony Party candidate.
