The twins sat down with the Labour leader to talk about his party’s policies and reasons young people should vote.
In the lead up to the 2015 General Election this May, Niki and Sammy Albon have met with Labour Leader Ed Milliband to discuss his policies, strategies and the importance of voting in the election.
Focusing on how Labour’s policies would affect the younger generation, Niki and Sammy asked Ed to address topics such as education, registering to vote and supporting the views and voices of younger people in our society.
Have you seen us interview @UKLabour leader Ed Miliband? We discuss how important it is to register to vote.https://t.co/gqLihuex3g

Ed isn’t the only leader taking part in interviews outside of the usual political sphere in an effort to appeal to voters. Conservative leader David Cameron was recently interviewed by Heat magazine.
Niki and Sammy aren’t the only YouTubers to have grilled a party leader either. Late last this year, many other British YouTubers teamed up with the political engagement charity Bite The Ballot for a series of debates with the party leaders. Jamal Edwards, Leena Normington, Hannah Witton and Jazza John were amongst the group of British YouTubers asking questions to the political leaders, both their own and those asked by their twitter followers.
TenEighty covered each of the interviews when they took place late last year and you can recap on all of them below.
Green Party – Natalie Bennett
Labour Party – Ed Milliband
UKIP – Nigel Farage
Liberal Democrats – Nick Clegg
Conservative Party – David Cameron (who backed out of his appearance)
We also caught up with Rebecca Brown, Lewis Parker, Rosianna Halse Rojas, and Hannah Witton when all the debates had finished to get their opinions on the experience and you can read that here.
