A 16-year-old audience member on the BBC’s Question Time has been praised for her harsh, articulate opinion on the Brexit chaos, and the young woman managed to sum up the UK’s dilemma more distinctly than most MPs, journalists and observers put together.
Speaking on the flagship debate show in Belfast, she said: David Cameron made the referendum policy because he didn’t want to risk losing 10 or 15 seats to UKIP.
But this has always been because Tories are playing party politics with issues that are going to be enormous generational changes for us all.
This young girl didn’t get a say in Brexit and she won’t get a say in it, because there’s not going to be a second referendum on it as it stands, but either way what we have to face isn’t an issue of parties coming together, because this isn’t a result of direct democracy.
And it all comes back to a party putting itself before the country it’s trying to govern, and she advised an additional extension and a general election to seek the representative democracy, this country was built on.
Her criticisms were extensively greeted on Twitter where users said she was exceptionally articulate and called for her to be made Prime Minister.
Sally Themans wrote: That she was brilliant. We should be listening to our amazing youth, and this young lady makes more sense than any politician in the past two years, and she’s a stunningly articulate young lady that could teach the government a thing or two.
Another Twitter user, James, wrote: “I showed the clip to my nan and she started to cry and said ‘This young lady is so spot on, I just wish the rest of my generation and the one after me would listen to the young more. They are our future’.”
This young lady should certainly get a say in Brexit, and many others like her because this country is their future, and much more politically knowledgeable than the ordinary Joe Bloggs.
This young lady is correct in every word that she says. The Tories have been putting themselves before their country and their people, and it’s a disgrace to British democracy, but then the Labour party hasn’t done much to help, they’ve also been putting their party before the country.
This lady is the honesty of youth, maybe we can bring her in and throw all the rest out and let her manage her own party of MP’s.
This young lady has more knowledge and understanding, and an undeniable right to speak about the European Union, she was expressive and wise, and she merits some admiration for having spoken out.
We’re in a mess because of campaign lies, going back many years about the European Union, from the right-wing press and none of our politicians had the boldness to stand up to them and take them to task, and this could have all been circumvented by the simple expedient of ensuring that the people were acquainted with the truth.
Of course, the Tories rely on right-wing media to do much of their campaigning for them, as well as the extremely rich, the only beneficiaries of Brexit who bankroll them, and why should we trust people that tell us lies, and we’ve gone along with this aberration for three years and we’re getting exactly what was promised, total anarchy.
And Remainers have just been ridiculed and maligned against, and it’s time for this insanity to end, and if this can’t be done with an agreed deal, then we have to have a second referendum or revoke Article 50.
This is a young lady that’s hit the nail on its head, so why can’t grown up people understand what’s going on, and this is a young lady that’s put an articulate debate across in an adult manner which should be cheered, and another referendum would give us all a second chance to vote knowing what we now know.
The problem with revoking Article 50 is it would have to pass through parliament, as it’s a process that has to be agreed by voting, and it would take at least another year, maybe more, and we don’t have that extravagance of time.
This young lady gives hope for the future, and such a change from the so-called lying, self-important politicians, and the younger generation has to deal with this because the older generation would rather things went back to how they were before immigration, and don’t really care how it affects them because they won’t be here much longer.
I feel pretty sorry for the younger generation because they’re getting shafted and it’s not right, and all in the name of greed, but then people have been getting shafted for centuries.
Every generation gets shafted, and this young lady isn’t going to be any different, due to the distortions and self-interest of the ones who shaft people, and the biggest shafter was Tony Blair, starting a war that no one agreed with.
And finally, if she ever gets to be a politician, then it will be her turn to shaft people for her own self-interest because she won’t be any different to anyone else.
