I was disappointed in your report of the hustings that you did not report Mr Hayes’ reply that even in the event of a Tory government not getting concessions from the European Union, he would still campaign in a referendum to take Britain out of the EU and away from our natural trading partners.
Natural Conservative voters should think very carefully before they vote for this.

This country exports more to the five million people in Ireland alone than the three billion people in Brazil, Russia, India and China combined and this constituency with its heavy reliance on the food industry and agriculture would suffer more than most by the diminution of this trade that would be inevitable should Britain exit.
In conversation with friends, they say they will try to persuade him otherwise; I think it unlikely.
A vote for Mr Hayes is a vote to leave the European Union.
Is that what you really want?
