First Crawley Election debate showed the passion in the town

The 2nd Ifield Scout hut was the location last night for the first of a series of hustings taking place across the town. Hosted by Drake Explorer scouts there was an impressive turn out to hear from the candidates running for Crawley.

With impassioned speeches the evening covered topics from Brexit to Education to Nationalisation of rail. What was very interesting was that whilst the majority of the audience were under the voting age, their passion for putting the candidates on the spot was very evident.

With another eight hustings to go, this was clearly a great test bed for all the candidates with the expected banter between them that you would expect. The evening ended with a vote on who the audience felt had given the most passionate performance.
