I have voted for Labour before and I’ll be voting for them again in this election. I think they’re doing a good job for the people of Dewsbury.
The Conservatives are all right. I don’t mind them, but I think Labour are better.
I like Shahid Malik, I think he is a good and kind man. Four or five years ago, when my mum wanted to come over from Islamabad in Pakistan, Shahid Malik sorted it out for me so she could come over.
I also think he’s doing a good job to improve health and education in Dewsbury.
I like the community here in Ravensthorpe, I find that it’s a good place to live.
