Questions for the politicians
So I’m due to chair a hustings meeting for candidates from the four main parties for a Bristol constituency this evening. I’ve never done this before, but I’ve been on enough panels at sf conventions to have a stark losing-sleep-style terror of silence.
Obviously the politicians will be fine – you just wind ’em up and they yak – but what if it’s a small audience and they all walk out out of boredom or disgust and there are no questions from the floor?
It probably won’t be a problem at all, but just in case, I pleaded for suggestions for questions to use in the event of audience non-engagement from my modest number of Facebook chums. I agree with them that the following all need answering, and hope some of them get put to the party leaders at the next TV debate:
Which promises will you break first?
Is the use of torture justified in special extreme cases, such as Piers Morgan?
Who would win a fight between you and Elvis Presley?
Would you hold the Pope down while I make a citizens’ arrest?
Which bands do your spin doctors tell you to pretend you like?
Are your undergarments made from renewable resources?
I need a beer – who’s buying?
