Went to the local hustings last night. It was quite enlightening

God knows what the local Tories were thinking with their candidate, well lets say I felt sorry for him. Seemed sincere but a total shambles. And this is a low majority seat!

Labour and Lib Dems came over well and knowing their policies, Lab was a bit too all rehearsed hand gestures, but he's been in since 97 and Blair is infectious...

All made a great point of how they'd had real jobs before being a politician and wouldn't take outside interests if they got in.

No mudslinging from Lib and Lab, Tory lost the audience in the first 30 seconds by trying to put the boot in. Lib and Tory made more of what they'd do, Lab on what they'd done, reasonably enough.

Some quiet honest answers too, one admitted to not having an answer, another time that the issue (dentistry) was a low priority so tough for now.

Glad I went. It didn't change my mind because of recent history, but if this was 97 again I'd have certainly considered switching my vote.
