Thank you for inviting comments on this controversial issue.
I am against accreditation at Conference and wish the FCC to decline Sussex Police's kind invitation to adopt it.
You will have no doubt been inundated with the arguments against, so I will not waste your time reiterating them (although excellent summaries of all the reasons why it is a bad thing can be found at Caron Lindsay's blogpost, 'Conference Accreditation rears its unacceptable, illiberal and not very pretty head' , amongst numerous others). I would also suggest FCC members spend a little time at the comments section of the LDV posting announcing this review. 90%+ of the comments are anti accreditation.
