Today was another milestone in the campaign; the first debate between the Bosworth candidates. Myself, the Labour and Conservative candidates were invited to the National Farmers Union public debate on Farming.
It was a well attended meeting with some good questions on the future of the farming industry, the big power the supermarkets have over some farmers and the environment.
It was a good debate and most important of all I think its fair to say that I learnt more, from the experiences and problems of the farmers who came, than I said. I have come away from the meeting much more knowledgeable of the problems and concerns facing the farming community in Bosworth.
Also spent the day campaigning in Hinckley and Barwell, again a very warm response.
