LibLink: Campaign diary (April) – Jamie Saddler in Wirral South

For the last couple of months, the Voice has been linking to the online campaign diary by Jamie Saddler, the 23 year-old Lib Dem candidate for Wirral South. His diary has been commissioned by Catch21, an organisation trying to get more young people interested in politics.

The latest instalment has just gone live – here’s an excerpt, as we catch up with Jamie in the midst of campaigning:

There are two things making the difference on the doorstep for me though – honesty and fairness. If there’s one thing the voters out there want it is for politicians to be truthful with them, to tell it like it is rather than endlessly spin. They know cuts are on the way, but they want clear answers to the questions “Where”, “How Much” and “How Soon”. Politicians owe it to the public to be up front with them. Unlike the other two parties, the Lib Dems have a clear and sensible plan to cut public spending – at the right time – without frontline services bearing the brunt. It will mean some difficult decisions on what we can keep, but people accept that you can’t have something for nothing, and that we have to live within our means.

You can read Jamie’s campaign diary in full here.
