Witney Churches Together have again arranged a hustings from which Colin – along with candidates from all the other less established parties – has been barred. Not just from participating but even from attending. The reason WCT – motto ‘The Churches of Witney are here to serve God and the community’ – reportedly gave for barring Colin was that ‘I don’t know you so I can’t trust you’. It seems they’d rather vote for the devil they do know than give a platform to a candidate determined to open up our politics to a breath of fresh air.
Colin intends to mount a protest outside, before and after the meeting.
