And you'll remember that this event strangely had a panel of candidates from different local constituencies, rather than a panel of all the candidates from any one particular constituency. The Bugle has this entertaining and human report of the election hustings at the Blackheath Halls on 26 April:
"Bloody hell, that was tedious. The hall was packed, but that didn’t stop it from being a very slow moving, sedentary hustings. I don’t think the organisers expected anything like the turnout that appeared. The place was heaving – the hall was almost full (and boiling, thanks to the house lights being left on throughout the proceedings). Before the beginning, I heard someone behind me muttering that “the LibDem hasn’t got a tie on…”........." Read the rest hereThe Bugle's report has photos and everything. Audio of the event is promised too, for real addicts.
But oh dear it is not looking good. Liberal Conspiracy itself has a cross-post today predicting that the Tories will have 100 seats more than Labour.
