Camera shy Conservatives

The most noticeable thing about Saturday’s Fox Tour visit to St Ives in Cornwall was the extent to which local Conservatives were camera shy.

Asked if he knew the whereabouts of the candidate, a man canvassing for the Party in a shopping centre could only manage evasive questions about permission to film. Similarly, when asked at the candidate’s office if an interview would be possible, the staff member walked away from the camera.

The Cornish Democrat, Labour and Mebyon Kernow candidates proved similarly difficult to find. We were delighted to hear such firm commitments to the Hunting Act from the Liberal Democrat and Green candidates, however.

Today the Fox Tour heads back north, away from the West Country, and all will be revealed later today on our Twitter feed.
