The meeting tonight was quite good fun, if being questioned about government policy on cluster bombs, Israel, civil service redundancies, asylum seekers, interest rates, tax rates, bus policy and (deep intake of breath) MPs’ expenses inside a church on a Tuesday evening is your idea of “fun”.
At most there were about 30 there – and that included the representatives of the local Conservatives and SNP. But it was worth it, I think. No votes gained, of course. If anything I may have lost one or two. But as I explained at the start, I was trying to come up with answers that were honest, not necessarily the ones they wanted to hear.
Will I do it again next year? Probably. Maybe I could do a bit more to publicise it. Because advertising it on this blog is clearly one way of keeping it a secret.
