I took part in the debate at St Mary in the Castle on Thursday at the invitation of my Conservative counterpart. 

It was an interesting debate but the attendance was disappointing. 

I think the message to us politicians is that we must do more, and more effective, outreach work.  People are just so disillusioned with the political process.

Interesting to see the split on voting at 16.  Amber Rudd is against.  Michael Foster is for.  But it is only us Lib Dems who have voting at 16 as party policy.
