In week leading up the General Election, I held not one, but two general election debates between prospective Parliamentary candidates.
They were a huge success with many young people in attendance and even more watching live via Facebook.
5th June – Sittingbourne & Sheppey
All parties were represented at our first debate, in New House Youth Centre, with candidates debating on topics including LGBT+, mental health services, excessive housing and the NHS. The debate was chaired excellently by Demi Bailey, a Young Ambassador for Swale Young People. Demi and Swale Young People was commended on it’s planning and fair platform.
6th June – Faversham & Mid Kent
Our 2nd debate was for the Faversham & Mid Kent constituency. Candidates were grilled by a large audience on the environmental issues, public security, votes at 16 and Donald Trump!
