“There may be questions that you wouldn’t think to ask, and it really is interesting to see how the different parties respond. Sometimes the debate can get quite lively between the candidates too.”

“It is important to remember that when you’re casting your vote you’re voting not just for a party, but for someone to stand up and argue the cause for our constituency.”

It has not been all plain sailing for Mr. Walton and his party look to make their mark on the local and national political landscape.

Speaking to HU17.net he explained how they have managed to get involved was many of the Hustings taking place throughout the region.

Mr Walton said;

“Because Yorkshire First is a relatively new political party it hasn’t been easy getting invited to all of them.”

“Prior to the candidate lists being published, some of the event organisers had seen us mentioned in the press and invited us.”

“However, in some cases we’ve had to seek out the organisers and ask for an invite. They just didn’t know we were standing. I know of at least two events which we have unfortunately missed as a result. This is a real pity.”

“It is important that these events are seen as being completely political neutral, and as such that is why it is important that all of the candidates that are standing are invited.”

“Even if a candidate cannot attend in person, parties will normally send another member of the party to represent them.”

On Tuesday evening, Mr. Walton will be joined on the panel by the candidates from , The Labour Party, The Green Party, The and Ukip.

  1. The hustings were extremely successful. However, we were all sorry that Lee was not able to be with us on the panel as he was in Castle Hill Hospital following a heart attack on Monday evening. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to him for a speedy recovery.
