LETTER: My mistake in the election

I am backing Stephen Lloyd because I back Eastbourne. I’m a local business person and born and bred Eastbournian so I know the town pretty well. Stephen has brought a personal side to politics that is focused on helping local businesses and the community achieve their personal and professional goals.

Local and national politics needs a much more sensible approach and I believe that Stephen and the Liberal Democrats can give Eastbourne more balanced representation that is not driven by personal political ambition and job safety in Westminster.

The two other main political parties have scared the public into thinking the worst of society in order to make sure their agenda objectives can be met.

I have read quite a few letters in this section recently and I must say that some people should really just calm down and get some perspective on what is really happening in the world.

We need to be more tolerant of other ethnic groups and work with them in order to make all of our society a safer and better place for our children to grow up in.

I made a mistake in the last General Election that was influenced by propaganda and now I would like to put things right and back the best person for the town of Eastbourne, That is Stephen Lloyd.
