As Scrapbook suggested this afternoon, the Conservative candidate in Eastleigh has once again been the only candidate from a mainstream party not to show up for a hustings. This time it’s the 38 Degrees one.
As with Radio 5 last week, Maria Hutchings has been “empty chaired”. A placard with her face on it has been placed where she should be sitting. Apparently the place is packed:
Standing room only down in Eastleigh, no chairs left (except for one on the stage)

Eastleigh residents came out in the cold to participate in their democracy this evening. What does Maria Hutchings think of them that she can’t be bothered?
