A good crowd came out this afternoon, in spite of the rain to give Eddie Izzard a warm welcome to Redditch.
Rebecca said "On the doorstep I speak to too many people who have never voted or will not be voting this time. I want more people to vote in elections and that's why I'm delighted Eddie Izzard, who is so well known came to Redditch to ask people to vote Labour on the 7th May.
There is so much at stake in this election, including for young people who face low wages, insecure work and being the first generation in a hundred years struggling to do better than the last.
The next generation here in the Redditch Constituency want to get on and deserve a bright future. A Labour government will guarantee an apprenticeship for every school leaver who gets the grades, we will reduce tuition fees and increase the minimum wage. And make exploitative zero hour contracts a thing of the past. There is too much at stake to let a Conservative Government in for five more years, we need a Labour government for a better Redditch Constituency and for a better country.
Not only was it good to have Eddie's support, I was thrilled to showcase Redditch town centre to him, including Church Green and the Kingfisher Centre. Not only that, he takes back a little bit of Redditch too - thanks to a kind donation of a Redditch Monopoly board!"
