Young people do support Brexit!
We the young people want to prosper with Brexit as it was the greatest vote in a generation and our generations have fought for our country continuously yet we are still being dictated to.
For example, world war 2 our soldiers fought for freedom and against the Nazis and so they deserve the respect we need to give them by actually leaving the traitor of the European Union!
There’s been a lot in the news about students and young adults not agreeing with brexit and because they could not vote and was not eligible to have a say they reckon we should have a second referendum.
Tell you what leave would win a vast majority once again and the young people I have spoke to just wants to leave and get on with Brexit.
I spoke to Izzy and she said we just need to get on with brexit and repeat the democracy and that the politicians need to listen to us.
In my opinion no ones mind have changed and it’s in fact thanks to the older generations why we got our freedom back including our borders and like the conservatives said they are going to end free movement. As we have also found out that there is going to be a brexit Betrayal march on this Sunday 9th December 2018 against Mrs May deal. To be honest with you I have spoke to numerous young people and have campaigned in my local area and they have told me repeatedly that they want to get on with Brexit and they want a no deal scenario. And at the moment they are feeling betrayed by both Mrs May government and the opposition. The only party who will seriously help us is UKIP.
It’s so absurd to think that after two and half years ago since the brexit referendum we have not got no where. The government is betraying us.
Also, they go on about young people voting but not everyone takes it seriously so it Would have consequences. And so I do feel they deserve a vote but it’s too late whether they can or couldn’t vote. Look I know that as I was at secondary school and was unable to vote but if I were allowed to register as an electorate that Would be my option to leave.
I like to think that we could possibly prosper without interference from the European Union.
“One of the most annoying things about politics has to be the way that 'young people' get talked about as one giant homogenous group, as though we don’t have different concerns, opinions, hopes and dreams. Just as not all of us like Ed Sheeran, not all young people go to university and voted Remain because they care about being able to study abroad. In fact, only around half of us go into higher education. And if you’re a young person in Northern Ireland, you might be more worried about whether or not there’s going to be a physical border between you and the Republic of Ireland than you are about anything else.
On 23 June 2016, the UK voted to leave the EU by 51.9% to 48.1%. We hear a lot about how “young people want to stay in the EU,” and some do, but the truth is that not everyone eligible to vote showed up on the day in 2016. While 90% of over-65s turned out, only about 64% of 18-24 year-olds voted (and, of course, not all of those voted Remain).
However, it is true that the younger you are, the more likely you were to vote to stay in the EU – studies suggest just over 70% of 18-24 year-olds voted Remain, while just under 30% opted to vote Leave. The older you are, the more likely you were to vote Leave. So, it’s fair to say that on the whole, younger people were more pro-EU than their parents and grandparents – only 40% of those aged 65 and over supported Remain.
The latest data also suggests that young people would still be more likely than older people to vote to remain in the EU were there to be another referendum tomorrow.
In a nutshell, the UK is currently divided into the under-45s who, broadly, are in favour of staying in the EU, and the over 45s, who largely want out but it's just lazy to say "young people are all remainers because they want to be able to go to uni in the European Union" which is one of the most common arguments we hear.” The BBC reported on Brexit for young people.
They say all young people are all remainers. Well I will tell you that’s a lie as I’m a prominent leaver and have spoke to and discussed with other people whether old and young about their voices and they just want to leave as they’ve seen how the EU dictated to us. For too long they’ve got away with it but we will stand united and strong.
About Lee: I am 16 years old from Gloucestershire college. And I am currently in my first year studying level 3 business. And I’ve always been interested in politics and have made petitions and have gone out to campaign like handing leaflets out. I have also had experiences when campaigning with UKIP for my constituency to deliver brexit. Which I had overwhelming support and people were pleased to see a young person involved politically.
I campaign because we need to take action and be the change for today and tomorrow otherwise we will not be listened to by the government as we are being ignored since I emailed my MP on countryside etc and he didn’t want to know.
