Statistics say young people don’t care about politics. I say: watch this.

This is my 13-year-old cousin, who has not only composed, written and made her own video about why we should vote tomorrow, she’s won a nationwide competition for her efforts. And you have to watch it – it’s excellent!


‘Before the 1930s girls couldn’t vote even if they wanted to’ are among the reasons she cites for making your vote count in her ballot box monologue.

It’s such an excellent piece of work I’ve been watching it over and over again all morning, and BB is fascinated.

If she comes up with something even close to this when she’s 13 I’ll be very proud indeed…
