Here are the candidates - all seven were present - in alphabetical order.
Jonathan Chatfield, Liberal Democrat.
Andy Monk, UKIP.
James Paice, Conservative.
Simon Sedgwick-Jell, Green Party.
And, of course, myself, Geoffrey Woollard, Independent.
As I have said, there is little time for commentary at present, but I will say one or two things. It is 100% obvious to all that Simon Sedgwick-Jell is the only true intellectual among the long list of candidates. Though he and I don't agree on everything, I enjoy listening to him and I hold him in very high regard.
Where Simon and I do agree is on the vexed subject of Afghanistan. He and I agree that 'our boys' should be brought home immediately from that hell-hole where their lives and our money are being wasted. The so-called 'major' parties all disagree with Simon and I. The people of South East Cambridgeshire think otherwise, like Simon and I.
But Simon stands no chance in this election. I know that I am in with a good chance of winning. That latter statement is based on the solid results of many weeks of canvassing. I know 'my' people. They are reliable. They are with me. I am independent. That is why the people are with me.
