Dirty tricks in Hastings.

Last night I attended an event in Hastings called “Rock the Vote” ostensibly to encourage the young to register to vote. Part of the event was a workshop “barnstorming” session which I was told was neutral and was to discuss methods of successful campaigning. However, it was far from neutral and James Corre from Compass who hosted the event clearly made it about voting for the Labour candidate Peter Chowney.  I left when this became obvious, after about 2 minutes.

However, much more seriously James Corre explained the absence of the Libdem candidate Nick Perry,  by stating that the Libdems were not campaigning in Hastings, but were concentrating on their campaign in Eastbourne. Here is the recording.

This was news to Nick Perry, who tweeted this today.

Who is telling the truth?
