It’s just over a month until the expected date of the General Election and I’ve heard nothing from any of the Prospective Parliamentary Candidates who will be standing for Aberdeen North. It took a bit of digging around on the web to find out who they are, never mind what issues they are speaking out on.
So I’ve decided to take my questions to them and ask the candidates why I should vote for them! I am going to email each candidate, tell them what issues concern me and ask them right out why I should vote for them.
The candidates for Aberdeen North are:
Tory – Stewart Whyte
Unfortunately there is no information at all about Stewart on conservatives.com. I did manage to find information at http://www.scottishconservatives.com/people/candidates/312. Not a good start for the new techo-savvy Tory party . . .
Labour – Frank Doran MP
Ooh, if you go to Frank’s website he surprises you by talking on a video. Nice personal touch, if a little scary. And a picture with Stephen Fry!
Lib Dem – Kristian Chapman
The splash page on Kristian’s website is very arty. Main page isn’t unfortunately (is it wrong to judge people on their website – no comments about brandspankingnew.co.uk please!).
SNP – Joanna Strathdee
Now I don’t much like the SNP website – far too much digging around the directory structure. But Aberdeen North has Joanna Strathdee.
Bit of a scary coloured purple jacket there Joanna.
Now for the email!
