Question Time is coming from Rugby this Thursday (May 31). “As soon as they heard, members of the Rugby Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) applied for invites”, spokesperson Pete McLaren informed us.
“As Secretary, I asked for a group ticket for ten Rugby TUSC members
“Individual members of Rugby TUSC separately applied as members of TUSC. In the event, so far, three members of Rugby TUSC have been successful in their applications and will definitely be in the audience, hoping to ask a question or to be consulted over responses from the Panel. It is possible the BBC will contact additional members tomorrow, the final day for informing applicants whether they have been successful.
“The three TUSC members appearing on the programme are:
Dave Goodwin RMT Health & Safety Rep and TUSC candidate in Hillmorton in 2011 and 2012
Ally MacGregor TUSC candidate in New Bilton 2012
Clive Dunkley TUSC agent and candidate in Brownsover 2011
“As Secretary, I am really proud that members of Rugby TUSC have been invited to be in the Question Time audience – as members of TUSC. It is a recognition of what we have achieved locally in just fifteen months, further evidence that we have something to offer, that we have a very different message to that of the establishment parties – a message that is increasingly being acknowledged and accepted,” he concluded.
BBC Question Time is broadcast at 22.45 on Thursday
