Why should lobbyist speak unto other lobbyists in our time

We provincial folk have always shown less deference towards the metropolitan persons who rush around being important. and grand Now this is a sweeping generalisation and regrettably some people who want nothing more than is sit in presence of someone they believe is important.

The ones that have been annoying me this week are the lobbyists who turn up to fringe meeting and dominate the question time to the exclusion of party members- who often have knowledge and perspectives we consequently miss out on. We listen whilst one vested interest  debates with another vested interest. Personally I would welcome it if chairs announced that members would have first bite at speaking in Q&A sessions.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
