Denise Burke, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for North Norfolk writes:
What a shame that the political debate at the Voewood festival this weekend (15-17 August) has excluded the women candidates from the main parties in North Norfolk. Why is the debate only between Michael Baker and Norman Lamb?
Politics is not a ‘men only’ club. I’m disappointed not to have been invited but then my mantra is ‘well behaved women rarely make history’. Perhaps that’s why the boys don’t want me there.
No wonder so many people, particularly women, feel excluded from politics. Not all politicians are the same – I offer a real alternative and will fight for everyone in North Norfolk.
