1 May (Part 1) - The Erith & Thamesmead hustings. Will they or won’t they?

The Erith & Thamesmead hustings appear to be drifting rather unconvincingly towards being ‘ON’.

The venue is booked (The Link, Belvedere Road, Thamesmead) for 18:00 on Sunday 3rd May and the candidates attendance is mainly confirmed but there is scant information on precise arrangements.

HustingsThere is as yet no published Agenda and candidates deserve to be given time to prepare them if opening and closing speeches are proposed - and how long should they be?

There is probably no time to arrange written questions in advance to be chosen by some dubious process as happened in Eltham a couple of days ago but no system for questions has yet been announced nor how candidates will be expected to answer them.

All rather unsatisfactory I think you will agree.

Note: Based on information from candidates early this afternoon. Click image for more details.
