In the Horsham part of this general election hustings are like buses: you wait ages and ages and then three turn up at once. Yesterday we had the event in Crawley Down and at lunchtime today it was Collyer’s school in Horsham, where the audience was not only younger but also considerably larger.

Yesterday we had the first hustings of the election which, at just seven days before election day, is maybe a bit later than normal to be starting this sort of thing. Not only was it the first one of this election in Horsham but the first one I have ever done myself.
