The hustings

Two days before the election and about twenty people gathered in the church hall to quiz the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Suffolk Coastal. I was easily the youngest person there.

My opinion of John Gummer improved when he responded that Fair Trade was a very good thing, something we should all get behind - much to the annoyance of the district councillor at the other end of the platform who argued the opposite last November.

I was disappointed after the meeting though, when he seemed to veer close to political mud-slinging after I thanked him for opposing invading Iraq.

The evening may not have changed my plans for Thursday, but it's certainly made me feel better informed in my decision.
