Bucks New University is hosting a General Election Hustings Debate, organised by the Bucks Free Press newspaper, in the Gateway Lecture Theatre at 7pm on Tuesday 28 April. The debate will feature Wycombe MP Steve Baker for the Conservatives; Jem Bailey for the Green Party; Steve Guy for the Liberal Democrats; David Meacock for UKIP; David Williams for Labour; and Independent David Fitton. Best of all, the debate will be chaired by local resident and former Doctor Who star Colin Baker.

Subjects for debate will include:
Tuition fees, the NHS; HS2; membership of the EU; and whether to commit less public spending or raise taxes to cut the deficit.

Anyone wishing to attend the debate can turn up from 6.30pm. Questions for candidates can be sent to

A second hustings debate takes place at All Saints Church in Castle Street, High Wycombe, at 7.30pm on Wednesday 29 April, organised by the pressure group Wycombe 38 Degrees.

And, to travel back in time to the 1970s and see Colin Baker as Dr Who, check out this trailer for season 22 below: Gotta love that coat!

Finally, just in case you were wondering how tight the race might be in Wycombe, a quick glance at Wikipedia reveals that our incumbent Tory MP, Steve Baker, has a majority of 9,560.

So, short of a revolution, the outcome of the General Election is not likely to be decided in Wycombe.
