Meet the General Election Candidates

Perhaps the public meeting is staging a comeback as part of election campaigning, as there seem to have been a number of debates already involving the main general election candidates. As a strong supporter of No2ID in Cambridge, I would particularly like to publicise the following debate on April 22nd:

Cambridge NO2ID is collaborating with Amnesty International Cambridge city group & Cambridge Oxfam Group to run an Election Question Time on Thursday 22nd April.

These Cambridge parliamentary candidates will be there to answer your election-time questions:

Daniel Zeichner (Labour)
Tony Juniper (Green)
Julian Huppert (Liberal Democrat)
Nick Hillman (Conservative)
Peter Burkinshaw (UKIP)

Andie Harper of the BBC Radio Cambridgeshire will be in the chair.

Attendance is open to all, and free (but donations are appreciated).

Time & Date: 20:00, Thursday 22nd April 2010 (Doors open 19:30)


Emmanuel United Reformed Church
72 Trumpington Street
Cambridge CB2 1RR

(Opposite Pembroke College, next door to Peterhouse)

I'd love an invite

Hi Old Holborn,

I did raise this with the organisers, but as I think they have indicated, they are following electoral commission guidance for public meetings where not all candidates are invited to be on the panel, and chosen a criteria for who will be invited on the panel, for which they have chosen candidates for parties polling > 1% last time.

Hope this won't stop you participating from the audience...
