Scotland must have more than 1 hustings

Last time round there was only one leadership hustings in Scotland, which was held in Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. Whilst Edinburgh has a large party membership it is simply not acceptable to the folks in Aberdeen, Inverness, Dumfies & Galloway, points North and West to traipse to Edinburgh for their only opportunity to hear the candidates.

Whether this is done officially or by mutual agreement of the respective campaign teams it must be organised. Oh yes, can we have venues large enough for the turn out this time round please?

Well said Iain. Scotland had members with the furtherest to travel to a hustings anywhere in the last round I believe.

Historically if it wasn't for our North North British membership and their long standing Liberalism there may very well not have been any Parliamentary Party surviving for us to have this election.
