Ballot paper red faces!

As postal ballot paper envelopes were delivered eyes popped out at the printing mistake that could mean either a redelivery to all postal voters, or even a postponement of the Borough Council election.

General Election Hustings

LtoR: Stanley Oram (UKIP), Rev. Kelvin Inglis, Sir George Young (Conservatives), Tom McCann (Liberal Democrats), Sarah Evans (Labour)

A well-attended, standing-room only, hustings event for the candidates in the upcoming general election took place last evening at the Gill Nethercott Centre.

Organiser Andrew Smith brought together the four candidates for the North West Hampshire constituency for a question & answer session chaired by Rev. Kelvin Inglis.

Questions from the floor were answered by all candidates

The questions from the audience were initially focused on issues relating to global poverty and international development, followed by ones on climate change; finally, questions on any topic were taken.
