I agree with Nick!

April 17, 2010

Whether you watched the prime ministerial debate this week, or have just read about it in the papers, you’ll know that Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg had a good night.

Up against the leaders of the two old parties, Nick spoke for many people who are exasperated with our failing political system. More than that, though – he offered solutions. So much so, both David Cameron and Gordon Brown conceded that on many points, they had to agree with Nick!

I agree with Nick.

I guess you’d expect me to say that! But on so many issues – smaller class sizes for schools, being honest about the cuts that need to be made, giving people a chance to sack corrupt MPs – Nick was right. Nick was also straight with people – cuts will have to be made. But we can make sure they fall in the right places – scrapping the like-for-like replacement of Trident, scrapping ID cards and cutting NHS bureaucracy.

I’m proud to be a member of a party that’s asking you to vote for something, rather than against the other parties. As a local teacher, that’s what I always told my students politics should be about.

Do you agree with Nick?

Here in Lewisham East, we have a real chance of electing a Lib Dem MP who’ll sit in Parliament with Nick Clegg and Vince Cable – challenging the two old parties. If you agreed with what Nick said last night, there are three ways you can help us here in Lewisham East:

1. Put up a poster in your window or garden to show your support.

2. Help our campaign by delivering some leaflets in your neighbourhood.

3. Vote Lib Dem on May 6th! We WON in Lewisham East at the last Council elections. If people vote the same way at the General Election, we can elect a Lib Dem MP and give Nick Clegg a stronger voice in Parliament.

If you can help, just click on the ‘Supporters’ button on the right and send me a message!
