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.
