Minimum wage needed
The use of the red poppy by the UKIP parliamentary candidate for Fenland says a lot.
Similarly, the fact that he could not be bothered to turn up for the Wisbech Churches Together hustings, says even more.
The hustings enabled the Conservative, Lib Dem, Labour, and Green candidates to answer questions from the audience.
My question, which asked the four candidates whether they supported the TUC’s call for a £10 an hour minimum wage, received a mixed response.
Interestingly, it was only the Green candidate, Helen Scott-Daniels, a teacher brought up in Wisbech, who fully supported the call for £10 an hour.

It is therefore a pity that the UKIP candidate was not present to answer whether he supports the call for £10 an hour.
