Taught me values

I REFER to the letter from John Smithee (Citizen Feb 23) and comments about the North East Cambs Constituency Labour Party.

I certainly will help any young Party activists and for that reason I have put my name forward to stand as a Labour Party candidate in March East alongside our young prodigy, Louis Sugden and the experienced Martin Fields.

I am not quite what John says I am. Certainly being from an Essex council estate and knowing hardship has honed my views on life and taught me certain values. Appreciate what you’ve got and fight to keep that.

Those from privileged backgrounds know nothing. Everything has always been there for them and now we have a Government that is hurting the less privileged in our society.
