Contrary to conventional wisdom, millennials are engaged. Though the least likely age group to participate in institutional¬†political processes such as¬†elections and party membership, young people remain the driving force behind so much of ‘informal’ political activity; from demonstrations and petitions, to pressure groups and NGOs.

This blog, though unashamedly Labour-orientated, seeks to expand upon these themes in making politics more accessible and relevant to young people like myself in what I hope will be an informative and enjoyable read.
