In addition to knocking on doors, undertaking numerous interviews and attending the many husting events held in Twickenham Vince Cable has taken a new step in this election in responding to the public through Facebook.
In a series of videos that have been published on Facebook he has set out his position on a number of key issues, ranging from the funding of schools and social care through to his views on how to deal with St Mary’s University plans for expansion. Many of the new videos he has produced have been in response to specific questions he has received via social media.
Setting out why all forms of communication are so important Vince Cable said:
“Twickenham has always taken elections seriously. There are few constituencies with so many local hustings held at election time.
“However, reporting back on Twitter and especially Facebook is vital as well.
“In this election, right up to election day I will seek to answer questions and set out my position on the key issues that concern local people.”
“Being accessible and responding to the electorate is vital and it is how I will continue to operate if I am privileged to be elected by the people of Twickenham on the 8th June."
