UKIP run away from Cornish debate on Europe

Local UKIP Councillor Harry Blakeley accepted my challenge to debate the impact of EU membership on Cornwall back in March, but it seems his colleagues have other ideas.

Despite repeated attempts to make contact with UKIP MEP candidate Robert Smith to arrange a date and venue for the debate, I have unfortunately been unable to get any kind of response out of him.

With just over a fortnight to go until polling day, I sadly think we are now beyond the point of practically being able to get something organised, much to my frustration.

Is Bob’s lack of response because he knows the facts just don’t support his argument, or is it because he can’t be bothered? Either way, it doesn’t reflect well on his attitude towards his voters.
