On the Sunday before the election I attended a hustings meeting, organised by the churches in North Ipswich. This was the first time that the five candidates had been on the same platform. We faced a wide range of questions, which had been pre-submitted, and some supplementary questions from the audience. Some questions were typical questions on immigration and Europe but more specific questions were asked on assisted dying, council tax on church houses and christian family values.
My Agent said I came over very well but that I answered the questions instead of making party political points like the other candidates.
It was a good experience and made a welcome change from pounding the streets!
