I love politics… something I never thought I’d say. Always thought that politics was something that other people did, the ones with politics degrees and who had nothing else to do with their lives.
I joined the Labour Party in January (shouldn’t really say that should I?! – but still it’s true) and it has made such a dramatic difference to me. My friends always ask me what is going on and last night when I was in the refectory at uni the lady who was serving me was quizzing me all about a hung parliament and what it meant.
Now, I love politics. For me, the reason I love politics is because it is about fighting for something that you believe in, standing up for what you think is right and having a voice to disagree with something you don’t. One of my friends said to me after complaining about a few things that she didn’t vote in the last election, my point to her was that you have a vote use it – join in and fix it instead of sitting at home or in the pub complaining!
So I have decided to tell as many people as possible to join the Labour Party and get involved. We need you! There has never been a better time to get involved and show your support!
This election campaign has been brilliant and as most of you will know we had a fantastic result in Blackburn. I had a man ask me at the count why Blackburn Labour Party are so good? My reply, it is all about teamwork and more importantly fighting for what we believe is right – fighting for the many not the few!
The next election I want you to be a part of it! So join https://secure2.labour.org.uk/join/ or if you’re unsure get in touch and I’ll be happy to have a chat with you – firstname.lastname@example.org
