Young Voters

We are calling on you to vote, have your say and remind politicians that you are here, you matter, and you deserve a Brexit that works for you.
From the very moment we are conceived, the government are influencing our lives. It does not pay to be apolitical, and now is the time to fight for policies that we feel can have a huge difference in helping the people of Britain.
It is crucial that we now capture and garner the mobilisation of young people before they become disillusioned with a politics that continues to misrepresent the vast majority of them. We must ensure that the youth feel listened to in the negotiations, and that they have a say.
The current government are too busy puffing up their chests and seeing how much they can get away with to come close to a coherent plan for Brexit. We need to get our foot in door and make sure they negotiate something that works best for us. After all, in a few years, it'll be us that has to fix it.
If we're being honest, the Brexit referendum was never run with a mind to having a well-informed vote on a matter of profound consequence for the nation. Instead it was reduced to a bartering chip, the promise of a referendum being a cynical route to victory for the Conservatives at the 2015 general election - and not much thought was put in thereafter.
Labour needs to present itself as a party of government and not a movement, Jeremy may have inspired many among the often reluctant to vote young but that is nowhere near enough to win a general election. As I'm concerned, that's what the entire Labour Party should be focused on, winning the election, and so should the young who want to see their fortunes change.
At first, I was genuinely upset, hurt and angry. After a while however, such feelings turned into bemusement as I scrolled through my Twitter feed and encountered the same dogmatic attitudes being hurled at me over and over again, interspersed amongst the news that Hillary had secured the Democrat's Presidential nomination.
We all knew this day would come. We all knew it was just a matter of time. We all knew that it was inevitable. Alas the time has come to fall on your sword. To do the honourable thing; to do what is right. Your watch has ended. You must now show your loyalty to the party you claim to care so much about, and save it. Resign, Jeremy, resign - or the red blood of Labour will be on your hands.
I am a huge fan of all things politics, yet in our current political situation even I am finding it difficult to take any enjoyment from our government. With a political system that seems to be crumbling around us, is it any surprise that the youth of today are disengaged in politics?
