Joe Richards: Thank you Tauntons!

November 28, 2019 4:00 PM

Joe Richards, Richard Taunton Sixth Form College (Richard Taunton Sixth Form College)Lib Dem candidate for Southampton Test Joe Richards enjoyed speaking to staff and students at Richard Taunton Sixth Form College earlier today.

Commenting after the event, Joe said:

"I would like to say a big thank you to the students of Tauntons college for allowing us to answer their questions today. They had some detailed thoughtful questions about principles and policies that give me great hope in our future generations."

"Introducing votes at the age of 16 is important to keep younger people engaged in politics, and moreover the Lib Dems believe it's their right to have a say in their future.

"My favourite question asked was 'What will the benefits of Brexit to Southampton be?' My answer was simply 'none'. Unsurprisingly, none of the other members of the panel could come up with one either".
