Digestible Politics: Infographic Breakdown
Still unsure about how each political party promises to make your life as prosperous and fulfilling as possible? Yero Timi-Biu breaks down the policies affecting young people from manifestos released by the Conservatives, Green, Labour, Liberal Democrats and UKIP.
As promised, we’ve looked at the core issues affecting young people today and dissected the main parties’ manifestos. The issues include education and further development (internships and apprenticeships, personal income and housing).
As noted in Digestible Politics: Why Your Voice Matters, many parties and followers veer towards one or two main issues, this means that other issues for specific demographics (such as young people) aren’t labelled as a priority.
Just so we don’t give you a headache, I made some infographics to highlight the key promises from the major parties:

We hope this information helps you make a well-informed decision when it comes to May 7th, or at least a better understanding of the type of policies agreed upon that help shape our future.
Part three of ‘Digestible Politics’ will be with you tomorrow.
Support more young people to have their voices heard
Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.
We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.
In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important.
Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
