politics {The General Election}

So tomorrow is the big day – and for many of you younger Twentysomethings this may be your first opportunity to vote!

So – who are you going to vote for and why?

If the answer is along the lines of “I don´t know” or “I´m not really bothered” or “it´s too confusing for me” or “they´re all the same” – then we beg you to please reconsider, do a bit of research and make the use of your right to vote tomorrow.

Millions of people have fought so hard for centuries for the right to vote and today´s young people are just throwing it back in their faces.  We Twentysomethings are the future and it is up to us to vote for the candidate we believe is the right person to lead us.

To help you clarify things a bit the BBC have created an excellent Guide where you will find a summary table of each of the main party´s plans for Constitutional Reform:
