Harper Does a U Turn – Ukip claim they will win control of the Forest


P1110904

BBC  Radio Gloucestershire travels to Cinderford for MP Hustings at the Miners Hall Tues 28th April.

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.
