Labour Parliamentary candidate for Thurrock, Polly Billington and Brian May, Queen guitarist and political campaigner, visited students at Palmer’s College on Tuesday 21st April to discuss with them why it is important to vote in the upcoming election.
Dr May has set up a campaign organisation, ‘Common Decency’, to support politicians and candidates who stand up strongly against vested interests; for the less powerful; to protect and respect animals and wildlife, and to de-escalate the world from war. Dr May has long supported Polly Billington for her work on the environment, wildlife, social justice, the NHS and her commitment to work across party divides.
Principal of Palmer’s College, Mark Vinall said: “We are delighted that Dr May found time in his busy schedule to meet Palmer’s students to discuss the importance of voting in the forthcoming election. All the major parties, their leaders and supporters have been invited to speak at Palmer’s and our students welcome the opportunity to engage with all politicians on matters of national interest”.
