Brighton Pavilion

There are only 295 days left before the next General Election which is due to take place on Thursday 7th May 2015. Purna Sen, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Brighton Pavilion held her campaign launch with over 100 members and supporters. I spoke about how the Government is keen to keep saying that there is a recovery but it hasn’t come to the doorstep of people around the country. Brighton Pavilion would benefit from having an MP like Purna whose work can bring change to the city. Labour is the only Party that wants to tackle the unfairness in the system. We have already suggested policies to ease the cost of living crisis immediately on energy prices, childcare and scrapping the bedroom tax.
