BBC Radio Gloucestershire travels to Cinderford for MP Hustings at the Miners Hall Tues 28th April.
Introduced as a historic venue, the banner on display one of the last surviving relics of Forest mining did not inspire the debate. It was a lacklustre, poor experience for many audience members hoping to challenge candidates, almost an hour, 5 chosen questions with few real exchanges, a real contrast to the lively engaging HOOF event last week which our MP chose to avoid.
Mark Harper’s presence was a u turn as he had earlier refused to take part in other hustings.
And Steve Stanbury claimed that Ukip would win control the of the Forest council
