The UK General Election. A (delayed) point of view.
This general election was hugely important to me. It was the first general election that I could participate in by voting (I’m 20 years old), though I have voted in the Welsh local election of 2008 and the European Parliamentary Election also. But this election was different. I became politically active towards the end of 2008, not long after I had started university and joined a political student group. My political alliances have strengthened since, and from campaigning for Julie Morgan, the former MP for Cardiff North since September 2009, I became quite attached to the idea of Labour winning the general election from working with such a dedicated MP.
