Independence Day

Monday evening allowed us to learn first hand about politics both in the UK and the EU from politicians themselves.


It was also an opportunity for us to get our voices heard and openly discuss any issues which we felt affected us in our local area.

Although the evening was very informative, it highlighted for many how unsure we are on many political issues, which I think led to the majority voting against 16 year olds getting the vote.


Laura said, “One of the main things I learned from the evening was that this lack of political knowledge is not limited to the younger age groups and needs to be addressed across the population.”
