It won’t have escaped your notice that there is yet another election next Thursday. As with many general elections, local voices are being drowned out by the battle between party leaders and the media hysteria over what this or that leader has done, or might do, and whether they turn out for TV debates. For us in Ludlow, we need an MP who can deliver for us locally. We need to hear the voices of our candidates. We fortunately have had the opportunity to hear our four Ludlow candidates at two hustings hosted by BBC Radio Shropshire. There is a third husting tonight (Friday 2 July) at St Laurence’s Church, 7pm to 9pm.
