    I’m a candidate for Kingswood – can I attend your husting?

    • Hi Liam,

      Could you tell us a little more about your party. The person organising the Kingswood Hustings is away until Monday, but I think they are only having the larger parties on the platform. I believe that is what the regulations state. You are, of course, very welcome to come along and ask any question you like relating to health and the future of the NHS.

      With many thanks,

      Steve

      • Liam Bryan says:

        My party, Vapers In Power, exists solely because the EU have written a directive that will remove the vast majority of electronic cigarettes from the shops (due to be enacted here by May 2016). We’re made up of ex smokers and less-smokers who are that way because of these devices. We’ve crowdfunded enough money to pay for two candidates (Kingswood and Barnsley East) and we’re really hoping that by taking part in the political process we can engage with meetings such as yours.

        Our issue is very much one that concerns the NHS – smoking diseases are the number one cause of preventable deaths and cost the NHS an estimated £2.15 Billion/year (ASH 2014). There are currently at least 1.4M lesser smokers and 700 000 ex smokers in the UK due to these devices, they are easily the most popular cessation strategy, to ban them is a serious matter.

        Having said that – I’m not a rabid political loon, and I wouldn’t dream of taking up more than my fair share of the time at your hustings (which would be a very small amount given our party’s size). Please do pass this on to the person organising the Kingswood hustings – we would really appreciate a chance!

        Thanks

        Liam

      • Hi Liam,

        Many thanks for the clarification. I have passed this on to the organiser.

        Best,

        Steve
