 Bristol Broadband Co-operative 
 Dialect Radio for 2nd May
 Ricky Knight (Green Party, Bristol West), Neil Maggs (Respect Party)
 Bristol Broadband Co-Op  
This week we have in the studio the Green Party candidate for the new Bristol West constituency, Ricky Knight, who gives us his views and a message to voters. After boundary changes Bristol West now includes - along with retaining Clifton and the University area - St. Pauls, Easton and the Lawrence Hill/Barton Hill area. So far, since the general election was announced, we have spoken with representatives from the Labour and Conservative parties and in the interests of fairness offered a platform for the Liberal Democrats who unfortunately didn’t take up our invitation. We also have Neil Maggs of the Respect party, who are not standing in Bristol but he gives us his views all the same along with an enjoyable poem about the election and the Respect party. We have songs from the Albion Band which spell out a few of the realities of environmental issues. Tony Gosling interviews Caroline Barry on the lengths one has to go to to build and retain a true eco home. Anthea Page provides a feature on a rare breed of pig. Trevor Carter reads another hilarious original poem with his unique brand of humour and satire, entitled The Ballad of Not a’Lotta, speculating what could be going through the mind of a great leader at this time of looming election.
