Hustings topics as varied as abortion, proportional voting, the Catherine Street junction and Latin being taught in schools tested election candidates in Kirkintilloch this week.
Six parties were vying to win voters at the event held at McGregor House, and organised by Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce.
Voters packed the hall to quiz Ross Greer (Greens); Amanjit Jhund (Labour); John Nicolson (SNP); Andrew Polson (Conservative); Jo Swinson (LibDems) and Jamie Robertson, who was a substitute for the UKIP candidate Wilfred Arasaratnam.
The lively event heard debate about zero hours contracts, fairness in pension reform, the single transferable vote, water privatisation, breaking up the union, Christianity in politics, abortion, assisted suicide, EU, the proposed dropping of traffic lights and kerbs on Catherine Street and many other topics.
