Presenter Rick Edwards has launched a bold effort to cut through the "horse s**t" of the EU referendum campaign with a new
Pollsters have used ever more innovative tactics to canvas the opinions of time-poor young voters ahead of the EU referendum
Young people may be the most affected by the result of the EU referendum. But too often, the media and politicians have shown they aren't interested in our opinions. Despite us being the ones who will deal with the consequences of this vote for the longest, the drama of whether Team Cameron or Team Johnson will control the Conservative Party after Thursday has dominated the coverage.
Look around you. Look at the poison you have created and ask yourself, what are you leaving me? This is your legacy and, regardless of Thursday's result, my generation may well spend the rest of our lives cleaning up.
There's nothing inevitable about the EU. It was born from people's struggles, from the blood of millions, and from people opting to share some sovereignty and work together. It's a beautiful thing - flawed but beautiful - and it needs reforming not abandoning.

And after two months of working in Idomeni everyday (bar one) I thought I understood the situation. Nothing however prepared me for the crisis that unfolded next.
People aged 18-24 are the only age group who are apparently more likely to vote remain than leave, with 53% of those asked saying they are backing remain. This, sadly, is irrelevant however unless young people actually make it to a polling station and vote. This is our future - we need to make sure our voices aren't drowned out.
