    Hi, I left a reply yesterday/day before about the hustings on Wed. Disappointment that 2 of the candidates ( Lab and SNP ) weren’t there, or didn’t seem to be.

    Please alert me to future events you’re organising. I like your approach. Thanks.

  2. Thank you for your comment, John!

    Sheila Gilmore from Scottish Labour and Ayesha Saleem of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition both sent apologies for the event as they were taking part in one of the other hustings in Edinburgh on Wednesday. Both Tommy Sheppard (SNP candidate for Edinburgh East ) and Sheila Gilmore were speaking at the Radical Edinburgh hustings event at the Jack Kane Centre on the same night. The SNP were represented by Deirdre Brock at our event and there was no Labour representative.

    As a group we are non-partisan and were in correspondence with all parties listed as standing in Edinburgh East (the constituency our venue is in) with the exception of UKIP who did not respond to our email invitation.

    We will add you to our e-mail list and keep you informed about future events.
