In this special Riddoch Questions recorded in front of an audience at Hillhead Library on 28 May 2009, Lesley chaired an old fashioned hustings meeting. The sponsors, Amnesty International and the Federation of Small Businesses put together a panel of all the main political parties seeking election in the forthcoming European elections. A packed audience posed all the questions and the result is recorded here in a slightly longer than usual format.
