The fact that just 44% people under 25 voted in 2010, compared to 61% overall, is part of why those same voices were not the focus of this year's Coalition budget. Pointing that out is not to say that voting is the only way to have a political voice. For young people social media is becoming an increasingly important tool. Yet those that get the biggest response - from the middle class parents to countryside campaigners to pensioners and so on - make both these efforts. At a time when so many issues, from the cost of housing to university tuition fees to unemployment, impact heavily on Britain's youth there is an urgency to tackle this trend.

Journalism as we know it is regularly changing. A journalist is no longer somebody that just reports, write articles or searches for a journalist. We are all so much more than that, we contribute to the everyday process of finding, sharing, confirming news whether it is minor or major.
