#GetsMyVote Family-friendly policies 'all promises'

James #GetsMyVote
BBC

In the run-up to the General Election on 8 June, we’re asking people across the country to tell us what #GetsMyVote.

Earlier today the Liberal Democrats said they wanted to introduce more family-friendly policies such as extended paternity leave. We asked people at Bristol Zoo what would influence their vote.

James, from South Gloucestershire, at the zoo with his son, said parties made lots of promises they couldn't keep.

"It's a bit of a gimmick in terms of if you look at countries like Sweden there's actually something meaningful about paternity leave," the 39-year-old said.

"In terms of the UK  I can't see it's really going to swing it for many families, it's just not really applicable.

It's more about tax credits, but again who's going to write these cheques later. It's all promises.

  • Leader and cabinet member for strategic leadership, culture and tourism – councillor Barry Lewis (below)
  • Deputy leader and cabinet member for highways, transport and infrastructure – councillor Simon Spencer
  • Cabinet member for health and communities – councillor Carol Hart
  • Cabinet member for adult care – councillor Jean Wharmby
  • Cabinet member for economic development and regeneration – councillor Tony King
  • Cabinet member for council services – councillor Angelique Foster
  • Cabinet member for young people – councillor Alex Dale

Northamptonshire Labour group appoint new leader

The opposition Labour group on Northamptonshire County Council has a new leader.

Bob Scott has been chosen to replace John McGhee, who has decided to stand down from the post.

The Conservatives retained control of the authority at last week's election, although Labour increased its representation from 11 councillors to 12. 

Speaking on BBC Radio Northampton, Mr Scott said "there wouldn't be a great deal of changes", but vowed to develop a team "into a fighting machine that will challenge the administration".  

On Friday, both Mr McGhee (Kingswood) and Mr Scott (Lloyds) were re-elected to their respective wards.
