Hi, we are the first time voters for Labour in the Bristol West constituency! We’ve set up this blog so we can talk a little bit about some of the issues that we care about to young people in a similar position to us. Hopefully you will find it interesting and helpful for when the time comes to put a cross on your ballot paper!
As much as I am for new parties and new policies, when it comes to governing, experimentation isn't always the right thing. Labour has history, and not all of it good, but it has built upon that and learnt from its mistakes.
I also believe wholeheartedly in Ed Miliband.
As proven in his recent interview with Jeremy Paxman during Channel 4's Battle for Number 10, he is a leader who cares about the British people and what is right for the majority, believes in the NHS and will fight for it, refuses to get caught up in the ridiculousness of media politics, and trusts in and endorses the power and intelligence of Britain's young people.
