  1. Hi Mark,
    Just want to say I really like this approach to campaign hustings. Our traditional leadership hustings have always concentrated too much on policy and not enough on skills, character, background and strategy. Please make sure there are more opportunities to question the candidates on these factors, instead of endless questions forcing them to find tiny differences on detailed policy (which the leader doesn’t decide anyway!)
