Let's get together, please

SO Steph Booth has pulled out of the candidates' debate on January 30. What a shame, though we can still look forward to the debate in Lightcliffe on February 2.

I'd like to invite Steph to debate with me, Craig, Hilary and Chris anywhere in the Upper Calder Valley sometime before the end of March.

In fairness (a Green watchword) there was a small amount of unacceptable behaviour towards Steph at the debate last May. I deplored this, and said so publicly at the time. However, it's easy to stop that recurring, and surely candidates do have a duty to face voters?
