Thanks to staff and students at Meadowhead School for inviting me to come and take part in their Q&A this week. It’s the third time I’ve done one of these events and the questions were typically good – we had the chance to discuss our thoughts on the voting age, the impact of Brexit, and the impact of tuition fees on those going to university.

For all the cynicism about young people and engagement with politics it was obvious the students care a lot about the issues they raised and had thought through their questions ready for the Q&A. It’s encouraging to have these kinds of discussions with people who will soon be able to vote – and I’m looking forward to seeing more of them involved with politics in the future.
