ARC meeting

Hustings time. Always well attended but usually by the party faithful and a selection of churchgoers. They vary a lot but usually there are a lot of questions on "personal conscience" issues such as abortion, euthanasia, section 28, stem cells etc. Was surprised to find that this was not the case this time and questions were more political.

I suspect nearly all members of the audience had thought about their voting intention before entering and few were swayed in a different direction but I was intrigued by the gentleman at the end who asked me why on earth I was a Liberal Democrat and told me that he would vote for me if I was a Tory.

Er, thanks but no thanks.
