Local Candidates Question Time

We just attended a local version of Question Time, in the hall of a nearby school, Dimbledored by a local methodist minister. Lets have a game of "match SB's impression of all the candidates to the candidate's name", shall we? It's very simple. Match a number to a letter, and let's see who is closest... Your prize will be in the form of smugness :D

Candidate Name and party Matches with? SB's Impression
1, Booth, Stephanie (Labour) A, Vacuous, slimy, self-important, self-obsessed turd who will likely win
2, Buckley, Greg (UKIP) B, Sweet, enthusiastic, spent most of their time endorsing Lib Dem policies
3, Myers, Hilary (Lib Dem) C, Surprisingly nice, given that they are related by marriage to Tony Blair, but hasn't got a cat in hell's chance of winning due to both local and national scandals
4, Chris O'Conner (Ind) D, Batshit insane but quite likeable anarchist
5, Kate Sweeny (Green) E, Utterly lovely, the most sensible candidate by far, will likely come second
6, Craig Whittaker (Tory) F, Completely clueless, ill-informed, ill-prepared, and risibly bad at public speaking

The most amusing bit of the evening was several of the Labour camp assuming we were Labour and putting a charm offensive on - one of them even tried to recruit me LOL. And the scrum over who got to be nicest to the cute little girl (that would be my daughter) in the front row was rather amusing too. At the end, Holly pointed to Hilary and said I'd vote for her. Lets hope the electorate of the Calder Valley feels the same way, eh?

Local Candidates Question Time

Jennie, I think you might have confused your candidates ie. Myers and Booth.

Couldn't agree more about Whittaker. His own recent scandals about child protection in Calderdale merit his resignation.

I was there too, and thought it was disappointing that you're question wasn't properly addressed.

If you look, Jennie has shuffled the candidates and her thoughts on them, as a guessing game...
