Well I think we achieved what we were asked to do on Friday night, which was to provide a venue where constituents could hear from Andrew MacKay about his expenses claims, ask their questions and make their feelings known. Quite a number of people clearly feel very upset and disappointed with what has happened, and eloquently made their points in a number of different ways. Others expressed their appreciation for what Andrew has done as a constituency MP, but were divided as to whether he should stay on or not. The meeting got quite heated at points, which felt really strange as it was such a contrast to the atmosphere we would have on a Sunday. I'm not going to get involved in the debate over Andrew's future, beyond what I've already said, but overall was happy that we'd said yes to hosting this event.
I also want to say a huge thank you to our teams who have overseen two conferences and two major public events over the last fortnight, as well as all our 'normal' events. I'm so proud to be part of such a fantastic team.
