Had an absolutely brilliant day at the Bilborough College "Mock Election" today. Many thanks to the organisers for the invite and hospitality. Don't tell me that young people don't care about politics. The students were engaged, articulate and did their college proud in asking all the candidates (or their representatives) testing questions on key issues such as tuition fees, competition in education and the importance of performing arts subjects in the curriculum. Many students of course live in Broxtowe and I would encourage all of those who are eligible to vote to do so, and those who aren't registered to vote to register as soon as possible.
After the hustings we moved to the vote . . . . . drum roll please . . . . . well what can I say . . . a fantastic Labour result.
