22-04-2010 News and photographs for RAV Salisbury Question Time Event

 

The Salisbury RAV question time in Hayball's Motorcycles, coincided with
the first ever televised Party Leadership, but there was a full house of
party representation and 65 riders there to hear the panel.

There weren't 76 rules governing the RAV debate, but then there wasn't
live TV either, unlike our last event in Norfolk.

John Glen (Con) used to prepare William Hague for PMQs in the Commons
and used some of those skills while debating against Trevor Carbin
(Lib-Dem) and Rebecca Rennison (Lab). Trevor is our first QT candidate
who used to work as a dispatch rider, so had a natural affinity with the
crowd.

We were pleased to also have Steve Kenward on the panel, who is CEO of
the Motorcycle Industry Association and Nich Brown from MAG.

Paddy Tyson, who was in the Chair, said "It was particularly interesting
to note that John Glen (Con) is on the Board of the Centre for Policy
Studies and is active in developing Tory policy. RAV really is lobbying
at the highest level to get riders' concerns heard."

While enjoying the free tea, coffee and excellent buns provided by
Hayballs, local radio carried out some interviews for broadcast the next
day.

Rebecca Rennison (Lab) has agreed to go for a spin on a bike and says
she is really looking forward to it.
