MP’s last hustings marred by attack
Dear Sir, — I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Fiona Bruce’s commitment to attend all hustings in the next general election after her refusal to do so 2017.
As the Congleton constituency Labour Party Parliamentary candidate in 2015, I debated with Fiona at three hustings, in Congleton, Sandbach and Alsager, and remember the latter event particularly well.
The hustings at The Civic in Alsager had been organised by the-now Alsager Town Conservative Coun Sue Helliwell, and was a vigorous but good-natured discussion, with some excellent questions.
It was, however, marred somewhat by the incident that Mrs Bruce partially recalls in her letter (Chronicle, 2nd October).
