Attended a General Election debate last night at the Central Baptist Church organised by the group, Make Poverty History. The debate was broadcast on Unity 24 Community Radio. The Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Southampton Test, Stephen MacLoughlin talked with passion about what he would do to reduce poverty in this Country and in the third world if he were elected. Stephen talked about how the Conservatives would increase the overseas aid budgets and ensure that money was better spent and directed more through our government departments rather than international agencies.
It was a very thought provoking and well informed debate.
