116: SPECIAL EDITION: Candidate-packed Euro Elections hustings-cast!
Surprise special edition incoming… It’s Euro elections week and lots of us STILL don’t know who to vote for. On Friday 17 May we brought together people from the key national parties who are hunting the Remainer vote to make their pitch in semi-hustings format. London MEP candidates DINESH DHAMIJA (Lib Dems), LAURA PARKER (Labour) and JAN ROSTOWSKI (Change UK) plus AMELIA WOMACK (Deputy Leader of the Greens for England and Wales) joined Dorian Lynskey for an hour of free-range podcanvassing in our London studio.
On the agenda: Who should you vote for and why? What’s behind Labour’s strategic indeterminacy? What would the candidates prioritise if and when they got to Brussels? If we remain, what are they going to reform? And which candidates can out-European the others?
A note on the guests: It’s a small London-based studio so we had to make the decision to invite only parties that are standing nationally, which means we couldn’t cover the SNP or Plaid Cymru. We’ll be addressing Scotland, Ireland and Wales in our final pre-vote show on Wednesday. But let’s face it, none of you want to hear from the Conservatives or the Brexit Party anyway, do you?
