THE BOXER Joe Louis once said: "You can run but you can’t hide" However, it looks like Thurrock MP Jackie Doyle Price is having a good go as she has, once again, turned down an offer to appear on a platform with her fellow contenders for the General Election.
South Essex College has organised a hustings at their new state of the art college in Thurrock.
The college told YT that they had invited all five "main parties".
The invite was accepted by the Labour candidate, Polly Billington. UKIP candidate, Tim Aker and Lib Dem councillor, Geoff Williams (Mr Williams stood as a candidate for South Basildon and East Thurrock in 2010).
The debate takes place on Wednesday afternoon at the New Road campus. We will report back on how it went.
South Essex College has issued a short statement informing us that Ms Doyle Price (maj 92) had declined the invitation.
