How will you vote in June's General Election?

VOTERS can put their questions to candidates about the burning issues at a Question Time event in Thatcham on Tuesday.

Candidates standing for election in Newbury will be quizzed on topics submitted by the audience just nine days before the General Election on June 8. 

Organisers have asked that questions be submitted in advance, giving your name, to david@thatchambaptist.org.uk or question cards can be filled in by 7.30pm on the night.

Questions will be sorted in order to cover a range of topics.

Head to Thatcham Baptist Church on Tuesday, May 30, for refreshments from 7.15pm for a 7.45pm start. 

Free parking will be available in the Burdwood Centre car park.

The candidates attending are Richard Benyon (Conservative), Judith Bunting (Lib Dem), Paul Field (Green), Alex Skirvin (Labour) and David Yates (Apolitical).

    Well if the questions have been submitted in advance, they haven't told Dave Yates what they are yet!

    Somewhat disappointing that all questions have to be submitted in advance. Almost as if the candidates are worried about being caught out.

      Let's be honest if you asked any of them what day of the week it was one would not only get a different answer but none would be correct . As a pensioner I need to know from the Tories , is my house safe ? From Labour , is my Country safe ? And from the LD ,is my sanity intact even considering you ?
