BREXIT: Patronising to the young

editorial image

According to our MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan, young people had been misinformed into thinking that, among other issues, they might not be allowed to go to France after Brexit.

It is not only flippant, but deeply patronising to credit young voters with so little intelligence; no wonder they are keen to vote Labour. Young people know exactly why they are rejecting the Tory Party and Brexit.

They understand that Europe funds much of the research, education and employment that gives them a future and fosters the concepts of collaboration and tolerance which they rightly value.

If Mrs Trevelyan was unable to persuade her son of the merits of leaving the EU, small wonder that so many others are now having doubts.
