Just over a month ago this election was called. May said it was all about Brexit. Since then, the range of topics debated has been huge. Nationalisations, tax levels, the best way to educate our children, the future location of Channel 4 HQ, role of government, immigration... you name it. This morning Ken Clarke has thrown a lot of people by suggesting that manifestos shouldn't be costed. We shouldn't be surprised by this. Not just because it's Ken Clarke. But. Because in this campaign there are no certainties. Everything is up for debate. May loves talking about how this election is about the country we want to be. She's right. We've had 3 major party manifestos so far. They all offer radically different visions of the future. Exciting times.
Over the next 20 days, we'll be sharing policy comparisons on social media. We haven't got all the manifestos yet, but here is what the parties have said so far about young people...
We've running 2 amazing election events. They're both in London. Sorry.
Sunday June 4th, 1pm - What's this General Election thing about anyway?
This is in collaboration with Comedy Club 4 Kids. It's going to be super great. A family show to give a clear understanding of the election & democracy as a whole.
Thursday 8th June, 10pm - 6am - Snap Election Section
This is the return of our block rocking election night party. There is nowhere better to watch the results come in. Decent bar, decent booze, decent people.
