HONION: Big turnout for EU hustings

Thursday, 01 May 2014


It was a full house in Honiton’s Methodist Hall, when five EU parliament hopefuls fished for votes, writes ANDERS?LARSSON. Formally named the Euro Hustings, the event on Friday (April 25th) was organised by Honiton Senior Voice (HSV). Five election candidates for the South West constituency – Kay Barnard (Liberal Democrats), Georgina Butler (Conservatives), Tony McIntyre (UKIP), Emily McIvor (Green Party) and Clare Moody (Labour) – had accepted an invitation to attend. HSV had billed the event as its “most ambitious exercise in democracy” ever, and there was a clear demand for the showpiece. Organisers had prepared about 50 seats in the hall, which were quickly snapped up. Another 20 or so were hastily arranged but some latecomers still missed out and had to stand. Each candidate was given five minutes of “hard sell” before members of the public put questions to them.
