Was in Lord Lawson school this morning for a debate with the other two candidates. It was with sixth formers and was good fun. My Labour and Conservative opponents made it clear they opposed electoral reform. The Tory even went so far as to say the number of MPs should not be related to the number of votes! All he wanted was strong government. Government is not strong if it does not listen to the wishes of the people. All in all more of the same from the Labservatives. I wished the Lib Dem candidate in the mock election race the best of luck. The Tory candidate told me he wasn't a Tory but they couldn't find one who would admit it in the sixth form!
