Ask General Election questions of candidates now!

Since the 2010 General Election, how many times
have you wished you'd been better informed?

Seize the Moment: Pose and post General Election 2015 questions for candidates now!


Where do our various local parliamentary candidates stand on issues affecting the unemployed, 'underemployed' and urban poor in Kilburn?
  • Do these candidates understand the extent and causes of poverty and deprivation and the local housing crisis?
  • Do they realise that a lot of people's votes hang on their attitudes to issues around benefits, poverty and housing? 
 They will only do so if people let them know. The more people that write to their local candidates, the higher these issues could appear on their election agendas.

It's generally more effective to write a letter than to send an email. Where a postal address is not given for a candidate, you could either send a letter as an attachment or email asking for a postal address.

Here are the details of known candidates for Brent Central and Hampstead & Kilburn. If you live outside these constituencies or aren't sure which you are in, just go to https://yournextmp.com/ and enter your postcode. This will tell you your constituency name and give a list of known candidates, with email addresses and websites. The websites tell us what these individual candidates think is important. Responding to something they have said is a good basis for a letter.
