Town Hall meetings

Both Nick Clegg and Kirsty Williams have had success with meet-the-people events up and down England and Wales respectively.

If a political party can have a meaningful conversation with the electorate in this way, then how much more important is it for the Welsh Assembly government to reach out to local communities. It was a sad day when the Labour Assembly Government decided to abandon the regional meetings which enabled ministers to explain WAG's approach to given topics and then to hear from local activists and concerned citizens on them.
