Here is the proof that Buscombe and the PCC should go

Disagree entirely. I thought Andrew Neal was very arrogant and unforgiving in his interview, and I'm quite a big fan of his.
Where we need to start is with the actual remit of the PCC and it's powers, therefore understanding just what they could possibly have done in this case. My understanding from this interview was that the PCC could only really ask questions and seek clarification on issues and also issues edicts that they didn't necessarily have the power to ensure were implemented. Without teeth, any watchdog is rather impotent.
Also in this specific set of cases, there is no way the PCC can interfere or insert itself into criminal cases.
I also found it quite funny, based on Andrew Neal's hostile questioning, that the BBC is the worst responder to complaints.
