I could not be more proud this today, 72 per cent of young people got out there and voted in the General Election.
However, this proudness is juxtaposed with feelings of worry.
I am concerned that a hung Parliament may turn into chaos and Britain may not get a good deal on Brexit.
Many youth voters chose Labour over Conservative, chose a politics of idealism and of hope rather than a politics stuck in the status quo.
In your negotiations, do not forget your constituents.
Do not forget those of us who voted for you, whether we chose Conservative or Labour.
We need you to represent us and make this country strong, stable, secure and prosperous.
This vote shows one thing, party politics now has no overall rule.
We are a nation undecided, perhaps divided.
We need your leadership now more than ever and do not let us down.
Make us all proud to have used our vote this year.
