Lost issues

Because I have not exactly been knocked over by candidates seeking my vote, I went out this week to find my candidates instead.

Luckily for me, I found them all being put under the spotlight on issues to do with climate change, transport and overseas development in a church hall in the centre of the city. These are all vital issues for politicians, which seem to have passed the big TV leaders' debate by. Of course, the economy is important. But what is good for the planet can also be good for the economy too.

Anyway, it was great to hear my local candidates debate these issues. Perhaps the party leaders should watch and learn.
