Labour's main battleground is Bridgwater where the new issue of BRIDGWATER ROSE has hit the streets. Coming through a letterbox near you over the next few days, the Labour paper goes straight for the Tory jugular with a hard hitting attack on Tory policies that have the potential to devastate Bridgwater - the demolition of the Splash swimming pool, the disposal of the Brewery field, the sale of Northgate to Tesco, the Tory Government cutbacks and the Lib Dem treachery are all prominent issues with the public during recent canvassing. Labour's campaign is clearly striking a chord with the Bridgwater public.
|Kayleigh "Young people are angry"|
Kayleigh says "Labour needs to take all 15 of the seats in Bridgwater to teach the Tories a lesson and to have a chance of getting them out of power in Sedgemoor. People have to have the belief that they can do this. They mustn't sit at home and leave it to others or think that their vote doesn't matter or that it won't change anything. This time it really can. People are so angry with the Conservatives for how they've treated Bridgwater and young people especially are really angry with the LibDems for their lies about tuition fees and for putting the Tories back in power. "
|Katherine Putnam "Youth in action on the Quantocks"|
If Labour takes the 15 Bridgwater seats then the 3 Highbridge seats where the Liberals are fighting amongst themselves and then regains the 2 Woolavington/Puriton seats, it will be Labours hard working young candidates in the seats adjoining Bridgwater who will be key.
