Angie & Martyn attended a hustings in Olby’s in Margate last night. It was called by Extinction Rebellion, and attended by candidates for North and South Thanet from Labour, Green, and Lib Dems.
The Conservative Candidates were unavailable.
As we expected, this was a lively event, with passions running high, and the majority of the audience were staunch Labour supporters.
As Liberal Democrats, Martyn and I gave a good account of the Liberal Democrats’ manifesto pledges on the environment, and whilst we were robustly challenged on Manston Airport, I believe we gave a good account of ourselves, and projected our integrity as candidates.
Our next hustings
The next hustings is in Herne Bay for North Thanet Candidates on Monday 25th November at 7pm at:
Do come along to support Angie if you can and publicise amongst friends and family.
