Why Vote: How to Make Your Voice Heard in a World of Broken Politics


| /

Apathay is the enemy, not the answer!

Since 2010 we have had 6 Prime Ministers in the UK but how many did we get a chance to vote for? This optimistic book takes you through the workings of government and parliament and make a passionate case for the power of democracy. It argues that it is time for young people to take back control of the future, hold politicians to account and get involved.

In the last decade we've had a Brexit referendum, the Covid pandemic, war in Ukraine and Gaza, and increasing fears over the climate emergency. Britain's influence in the world has been diminished, freedom to protest peacefully has been curtailed, the cost of further education is a concern, the health service is in crisis and the likelihood of owning your own home or even finding somewhere to rent is becoming less and less. If younger people turned out to vote in the same numbers that older people do, this country would be a very different place.
