Politics affects everybody. Although politics is often portrayed as nothing more than some white, stale, middle class old men trading soundbites, it effects people like us. Councillors make decisions on the things that matter to us most: the local economy, the environment, education, planning and much, much more. Despite that, thousands of people my age still won’t vote.Lewis Campbell
