How the candidates fared...

To follow on from my last post; how did the candidates do?

In his concluding his in-depth coverage on the Hebweb, Chris Ratcliffe summed it up about right in my opinion when he said,

"If we are looking at knowledge and familiarity of the issues, confidence, sense of humour, then Kate Sweeny and Craig Whittaker would win. Hilary Myers was competent. Steph Booth, perhaps not surprisingly given that Tony Blair is her son-in-law, remained solidly New Labour. Chris O'Connor might consider whether wanting to abolish all laws is actually a vote winning strategy. Greg Burrows could benefit from some public speaking training, although he did admit that this was his first time on such a platform."
My thoughts exactly...
