London Green Party's latest political broadcast
I've just seen this: I think it's great, but of course some will argue that this is why we don't let children vote in the first place!
Local democracy in this country is a bit of a scandal: derisory turnouts on an electoral register that doesn't include all sorts of people - and Government proposals to change the way electoral registers are collated will only make things worse.
Whatever you think about the Green Party - or this advert - I hope all lovers of democracy will resist the Government's plans as far as possible.
And, while we are at it, do ask your MP if they'll support the votes@16 campaign to give 16 and 17 year olds a voice too!
