A 22-year-old has been elected as a Member Parliament (MP) the UK's general election on Thursday. Sam Carling won the seat North West Cambridgeshire the slimmest of majorities. Mr Carling, from the Labour Party, narrowly beat the incumbent Conservative Party candidate 39 votes. He will now sit Parliament in Westminster and represent the interests and concerns the people in his Cambridge seat. At Westminster, he will be called the "baby the House". This is the unofficial title given to the youngest MP. Carling, a science graduate Cambridge University, called his victory a "political earthquake". He hopes his achievement will spur young people to enter politics, and "tackle apathy".

Mr Carling said his interest politics was sparked the social and economic decline he saw in the UK. He grew up in what he described as "a very deprived area" the north of England. This is an area the Conservative Party had promised to "level " and turn a "northern powerhouse". However, these lofty promises went unkept. Carling said: "I saw a lot of things getting worse me. I was concerned about shops closing local high streets that used to be a thriving hub and are basically now a wasteland." He hopes the newly-elected Labour Party will undo 14 years Conservative misrule, scandal, sleaze and corruption. Britain's public services are chaos and people are worse than they were 14 years ago.
