ONE question…

Following my article last week about marginal constituences…

Today I received through the post a letter from my local Conservative candidate which begins: “Hammersmith is one of the most marginal seats in the country – your vote here will really matter”… I rest my case your honour.

Also enclosed is a form and I am invited to submit ONE question (his caps, not mine) and “it can be on anything you like” <sound of gleeful cackling>… conservativelogo

Helpful suggestions for questions in the letter include:

“What will a Conservative Government under David Cameron be like? What are our top priorities? What makes you different from other parties?”

…all of which I should surely be able to a) get from their website b) imagine in my wildest nightmares.

Given that there are so many questions I would like to ask I feel unable to restrict myself to just the one – so I thought I would turn it over to those of you who happen to be living in non-marginal constituencies… The most original question (short please, there’s only enough space on the bloody form for about 30 words) will be submitted. Facetious and rhetorical questions, although appreciated for my own amusement, probably wont make it to the final shortlist. Over to you…

What concrete steps will a Conservative government make to reverse the significant erosion of civil liberties under Labour?

You’ve pledged to give tax breaks to married couples because the children of married parents do better. Do you genuinely not get the distinction between correlation and causation, or is it all some kind of elaborate joke?

…might want to phrase it less sarcastically, but you get the idea.

Why the sudden hysteria about the national debt?

Hmmm. One question to the Tories. Have to think hard about that…OK, nearly there…
“Why don’t you just fuck off?”
(more rhetorical than facetious I suspect)
