Yesterday I took part in the Bury Grammar School for Girls Election Debate. After a superb lunch Candidates from the Labour Liberal Democrat and UKIP parties and myself answered questions from the pupils in a Question time format.
The School is holding a mock election with the campaign running in parallel with the real campaign and the school will vote on May 6th to determine the winner.
IN the real election the nominations for Candidates has now closed and the Returning Officer has published the fact that in addition to the four parties that took part in the BGSG debate there will also be an Independent Candidate, one from the Pirate Party UK and a BNP Candidate. So seven candidates in total and I will be the seventh and last name on the ballot paper.
