From a comment made in a different thread, about the disaffection of youth with politics today.
When I was at school , we had a compulsory subject called Civics. We were shown how politics worked, and the role of parliament and councils, and had speakers from the police and fire brigades and other civic organisations. No party stuff, (well not directly, there were only Conservatives where I lived).
Now these subjects are as far as I can see not even allowed in schools, even if the timetable will allow. So young people don't have any idea why they should be interested. Give them a reason, and they are as keen as we were all that time ago.
