Question Time Debate
A bit less dull than earlier encounters and the evening buttressed my ready to be posted ballot paper choices.
I was always going to vote Hughes as his politics is closest to mine and he is the least fearless in talking about redistribution of wealth (and power). Chris Huhne, has made the running on policy issues and his position on Iraq, green taxes, taking more people out of taxation and reluctance to replace trident all score well with me. Choice No. 2 and he has certainly registered on my political radar unlike before the contest. Huhne's bank manager-like persona and lack of charisma may not resonate well with non-politicos.
Ming is the establishment candidate. Erudite, urbane, patrician-sounding and 'safe'. In policy terms I think he'd position the Lib Dems in a way that would make us less distinguishable from Labour and the Tories.
So Hughes 1, Huhne 2 it is !
