After 72% of young people voted in the General Election, 24-year-old Adam Bradford from South London has called on our major party leaders to not let his generation down

Social entrepreneur and Queen’s Young Leader Adam Bradford has this morning penned a public letter to the leaders of the Conservative and Labour parties, calling for unity and proper representation in any negotiations.

He said: “I could not be more proud today, however a hung parliament brings me feelings of worry. Represent us, your constituents. We need the best deal for Britain. Now we need your leadership more than ever. Our young people’s futures depend on stable, forward-thinking political action right now. This is your chance to prove that our votes mattered and that our democracy is worth having. We are now a nation undecided, perhaps even divided.”

Adam is available for comment today on youth views post-General Election, call 07950 313113 24/7.


His letter, posted online and via social media to political leaders, reads:

Dear political leaders,

I could not be more proud today. 72% of young people got out there and voted in last night’s General Election.

However this proudness is juxtaposed with feelings of worry. I am concerned that a hung Parliament may turn into chaos and Britain may not get a good deal.

Many youth voters chose Labour over Conservative, chose a politics of idealism and of hope rather than a politics rather stuck in the status quo.

In your negotiations, do not forget your constituents. Do not forget those of us who voted for you, whether we chose Conservative or Labour. We need you to represent us and make this country strong, stable, secure and prosperous.

This vote shows one thing, party politics now has no overall rule. We are a nation undecided, perhaps divided. We need your leadership now more than ever and do not let us down. Make us all proud to have used our vote this year.
