I grew up in Milton Keynes attending the local schools, visiting the local clubs and parks. Going to Giffard Park Primary School, spending my free time at Wolverton Tennis Club or the local youth club, I saw what Milton Keynes had to offer; a place full of communities aiming to improve everyone’s lives for the better. I joined the Labour Party as I believed it was the only party offering change, a hopeful future and a willingness to represent the will of the people, matching the values of Milton Keynes as a growing, diverse city.
Young people are extremely important despite the accusations that we are uninterested and uninvolved. However, the climate emergency that is threatening our existence on this planet and the future of endless species have highlighted that the allegations of youth disengagement are unfounded. The Labour Party was the party to propose the motion for the climate emergency in Parliament, aware of the drastic action needed to save the catastrophe of our mindless activity destroying the planet. The Labour Party have been the voice of young people, valuing our views, our opinions and our willingness to create change.
