The Hustings @ Husthwaite


On the evening of April 14th the hustings came to Husthwaite.

The hall was full and the audience eagerly anticipated the arrival of the prospective candiates for Thirsk and Malton.

There will be a new MP as the sitting member, Anne McIntosh, had been de-selected by her Thirsk and Malton constituency association

The candidates present were as follows:

Kevin Hollinrake: Conservative
Di Keal: Lib Dem
Alan Avery: Labour
Philip Tate: Independant
Toby Horton: UKIP
Chris Newsam: Green Party

The event was chaired admirably by Anthony Glaister

There is no need for any comment from me as the whole event can be viewed here
