Yes, we're all bored of Brexit. And it's hard to keep up with what politician is making what terrible decision. Sometimes it's easier to just look the other way. But that's literally the worst thing we can do. On Thursday 24 May, I urge you all to vote in the European election.
Femi Oluwole breaks it down for us, giving us a 101 of what these elections mean. As a co-founder of pro-European Union advocacy group Our Future Our Choice, he says, "if you're bored of Brexit, you cannot let Brexit happen. It should be your boredom fuelling you to get involved in this issue."
While the leaders of our country battle it out, determined to mess up our future, we need to make our voices heard. We need to show up to vote, because if Farage wins, we're in a very dangerous territory.
