Hi Matt, we have met actually ( briefly ).You left the Green Party I recall, and I think you are an independent now, (from memory). This would be a good chance to hear an exchange of views I look forward to it .
Hope I got that right by the way ( about the Green Party)

It will be a fiasco, there will be each party trying to slag the others off and at the end there will be NO RESOLUTION. These open debates are nonsense, what we want is the candidates on the doorstep or in the town where you can look them in the eye and question them.We will NOT get that, they all much prefer to have glosssy fliers and local TV appearances, ANYTHING, to avoid having to meet the "peasants" face to face.

It will be worth it just to meet SOT. (Paul Newman) Anyone that posts as much about Lewes and Lewesians would look like a right nana if he failed to attend .

Well the idea was not to have my name googled( I`m not a mystery, I can be found in about ten seconds ) but as the resident loon/troll, and others seem to think its fantastically clever to endlessly ignore my request, I may as well go back to the old name.
Anyone who wants to meet me is very welcome, the last hustings was packed and quite entertaining. Actually if I get to ask a question it will be directed at UKIP .
I would simply list a few families in Lewes who will be unemployed if we leave the EU, explain what that means for them and their children and ask what arrangements are in place for replacing their markets, suppliers and legal access .

when you talk about these families' children's markets, suppliers and legal access, are you talking about drugs and child custody?????

What a shame it's not in the town hall. The All Saints can only accomadate 200 and last time there must have been double that number.
It might be worth making it a ticket only event other wise I can see alot of people being turned away.

@boris. I tried to get a larger venue, but most places are booked throughout April. I hope to see a full house. I need to think about tickets, even if it is a free event (with a suggested donation). I hope that Local or BBC radio can get involved too. Lots to arrange but at least we have a venue and all parties involved. Spread the word

Where will I be able to obtain a ticket? And can I have one without giving a donation and my personal details? I was planning to queue up around 4ish with some food after a few pints at lunch time so that I may claim a seat.
