General Election 2019 - Herne Hill Hustings
Always expect the unexpected in British politics, and we have a December General Election on the horizon.
Herne Hill Forum, with the support of Norwood Forum, Dulwich Society, Herne Hill Society and other local groups, are holding a hustings event on Tuesday December 3rd, at the Baptist Church on Half Moon Lane. It will run from 7-9pm, so there will still be time to nip to the Half Moon (other local hostelries are available) for a glass of something reviving afterwards.
This is a chance to quiz the candidates on the issues that matter to you, whether it be crime, the NHS, employment, housing, climate breakdown or Brexit, and find out what they mean for Dulwich and West Norwood residents. We've all seen the impact of air pollution on our streets, crime and anti-social behaviour in our area, Kings College Hospital in the news, funding cuts to local schools - how will the candidates tackle these?
In these uncertain times (as the saying goes), public democracy is more important than ever, and we know that Herne Hill residents have always come out in large numbers to support open debate and engagement with the political process. It may be winter, and nearly Christmas, but we hope to see you with us on the 3rd to ask those difficult and probing questions!
We have candidates from four parties confirmed so far, including Labour, Green Party and the Conservatives, and we hope for a lively and challenging debate. We welcome questions sent in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org, and there will be time for questions from the floor too.
