Well that was an interesting morning.
A few weeks ago I discovered Sky News was holding a live election debate in Cardiff and naturally when I saw they were asking people to put questions to the panel, I was quick to respond. I was surprised to say the least to find my question - regarding uncontrolled European Union Immigration met with the approval of the SKY TV production team and resulted in my invitation to the debate to put my question in person.
To my utter delight I found the panel would include none other than the Welsh Secretary PETER HAIN !
So, here for all to see, Peter Hain taking - and of course dodging, as always - a question on immigration posed straight to him by the (prospective) British National Party General Election Candidate for the constituency of Islwyn.
At the end of the debate I just couldn't resist getting a little practice at doing a "piece to camera" myself.
Because one things for sure when Hain gets home and finds he's been debating immigration with the BNP he is going to bust a blood vessel.
By the way I hear Rhiannon Passmore Labour councillor for Risca with a venomous and indeed some might say libellous hatred for this party and all it really stands for was writing some drivel in the South Wales Argus wondering where the candidate for Islwyn was.
Well now you have your answer Rhiannon. I was debating issues of substance with real politicians.
But don't worry I'll be round to see your former voters later this week. Looking forward to it, the ones I have already met all say they like my party and what it stands for. In fact over several hours of canvassing the streets in the constituency last week, I only met one voter who said they were going to vote labour.
