  • I hate to say this (as personally like the author of the original tweet I would not vote for any candidate who was against equal marriage) but this looks a bit contrived.

    It possibly isn’t, but the timing of the three tweets makes this look like a stunt. You would assume that if this is the key issue for Thomas he would give more than 11 minutes for other candidates to answer before deciding who to lend his vote to.

  • Probably fair to say that if equal marriage is a key issue for you the Tory and Ukip candidates are starting off with a bit of disadvantage

  • Has someone pointed the Eastleigh voter who asked about this on the other thread towards the answer?
