Some of our supporters’ details are below. Help us spread the message and tell us why you’re backing our campaign.
Tom Scholes-Fogg, founder of It’s Politics, author and former House of Commons staffer.
“I founded It’s Politics as a result of an alarming number of people telling me they weren’t interested in politics and they didn’t vote because politicians are ‘all the same’ and ‘in it for themselves’. Having worked for four MPs I know that’s not true. We need to engage with voters and prove to them that their vote and their views matter.”
Councillor Suzanne Richards, Manchester City Council
“In some areas the large number of people not voting is leaving communities without a voice. We need positive campaigns to reconnect and engage people with voting again. Itspolitics.org is helping to give people back their voice – their vote.”
Wes Streeting, Labour MP for Ilford North and Former President of the NUS
“The biggest group of people that can determine the outcome of the election are people who don’t usually vote. This is the most unpredictable election in our country’s recent history. Make your vote count. You can bet that other people are.”
Huw Irranca-Davies AM, and Former Shadow Minister of State and Labour MP for Ogmore
“Politics matters to every one of us every day in so many ways, yet too many people just don’t see the links between politics and their own daily lives. Positive campaigns to encourage people to vote and to shape their own futures are key to a healthy democracy.”
Afzal Khan, Member of Parliament
“Politics is still somewhat of a puzzle for a lot of people, despite the fact that it impacts their lives so deeply. I’m pleased to see that It’s Politics will be reaching out to people of all age groups to encourage people to get more involved in Politics so that we can ultimately have a genuinely democratic society.”
