PODCAST SPECIAL - Listen to the Bromsgrove election hustings

Tristan Harris 6th Dec, 2019 Updated: 6th Dec, 2019

BREXIT, the NHS and Climate Change were the main issues discussed at Bromsgrove’s general election hustings on Saturday, producing some lively debate on the issues.

Conservative Sajid Javid, Labour’s Rory Shannon, Liberal Democrat Dr David Nicholl and John Davis, standing in for Green Party candidate Kevin White, battled their way through the questions in front of more than 200 people.


Each candidate had one minute to answer each question.

As well as Brexit, the NHS and Climate Change, there were also questions on local education funding, the housing crisis and affordable housing and Bromsgrove’s congestion problems.

Candidates were also tasked with describing what attributes they had which made them the right person to be Bromsgrove’s MP.

The event was organised by Churches Together in Bromsgrove and took part in Bromsgrove Baptist Church on Saturday, November 30.
