Only five weeks to go and most candidates have declared:

If you could ask them a key question what would it be?

I would ask them what measures they are going to take to conserve the environment and improve biodiversity not just in Warrington but across the UK.

I would ask them if they knew where my house keys were as I had them when I came in (I must have had them or I wouldn't have got in and be sitting here typing this now) but for the life of me I can't find them anywhere now.  Gawd !!

Well you did ask for 'key' questions Geoff....sorry :oops:

Other than that I can't actually think of a more sensible question to ask any hopeful candidate, most are full of cr*p nonsense and false promises they rarely keep or can even keep anyway...oops 8):wacko:

I would ask them who is currently running the country when we have no parliament and if they are making a better job of it than you politicians.

if you really want to watch them squirm a bit then ask any prospective candidate this question. "Do you intend to fiddle more or less expenses than your rival candidates?"

Whatever answer the give can be construed as admitting that their rivals fiddle expenses and or that they do.

There's only one "key question", and it looks like the electorate are answering it !

I think the answer to your conundrum Geoff is in your original post - "IF" you could ask a candidate a key question.

Or I could try treading them the Rudyard Kipling poem and gauge their reaction :rolleyes:

You would still have to get them into a corner before you could ask your question Geoff.

Here's a question - will you support the Labour Party whip if elected under the Labour Party banner ?   Reason - it appears that scores of "moderates" are threatening to go independent in Parliament, if (when) Corbyn gets thrashed.  So no principles in play here, just the usual prima-donna self interest.    :ph34r:

Thanks Geoff.  Shame as I'd have liked to have listened to that to hear what the 'hopefulls' have to say but 1pm is a silly time as I'll be in work and I guess a lot of other people will be too.  Never mind though eh :blink::lol:

It may be recorded?

The following Friday it will be the North but the Reds & Blues have yet to confirm which is a poor show!

Well, it seems the Reds are too busy canvassing and the Blue's don't really need to bother !     :D

I wouldn't say that South Warrington is a 'safe seat'. 

The proposed mass housing developments on Appleton & Grappenhall green fields are currently the most important issue that has affected these areas in decades.  The fact the Tory government has made it easier for developers to encroach on the green belt and use increasingly more greenfield sites for housing will not be a vote catcher for David Mowatt. Add to that the fact he appears to be sitting on his *** and doing nothing to help the people he is paid to represent - starkly in comparison to Helen Jones N. Warrington who puts up a fight for green fields in her constituency.  But, on saying that......the other candidates seem also to be sitting on their ***** in relation to this.  So are any of these individuals worth voting for?
