The PPC trend on Twitter is about the upcoming police and crime commissioners elections, which take place in England and Wales tomorrow.

Weirdly, not many policemen and women are talking about the imminent elections, leading to speculation that there will be a low turnout on Thursday.

@FromeLabour tweets: "PCC Elections. Anything other than a Labour win will undo all the progress and reforms achieved by the last Labour government."

@rouseyuk tweets: "In other election news...the Conservative PCC candidate for Dorset is called Nick King. Geddit?"

@chrispeater tweets: "I'm voting in the PCC elections tomorrow because, as we're getting a PCC, we need one who will stand up to government cuts."

@_aylesbury tweets: "I've now had 2 leaflets through from PCC candidates (from UKIP & Conservative). Are the other 4 candidates doing anything in Aylesbury Vale?"
