Are you struggling to work out what the EU Referendum is all about? Cai has created a short video to help answer some of the questions you might have.

What do I know about European politics?

Later this year, we’re having a referendum on whether to stay in the EU or leave, but I’ve been left feeling like I don’t have a clue about what’s going on. What do I know about European politics? Why am I deciding on something I know next to nothing about? Surely this should be an decision made by the experts?

I can complain about having to make the decision all day, but that’s not going to change the fact that we’re voting on it. So I thought to myself – time to get educated. Whether we stay or go is a personal decision, but it’s worth understanding both sides. I made a video telling you everything you need to know about the EU Referendum so that you can make up your own mind.

Don’t forget to register to vote so that you can take part in the EU Referendum on 23rd June 2016.

What do you think? Should we stay or go? Let us know on @rifemag

If you’ve got an issue that’s affecting you, then you can chat to the Bristol City Youth Council and Youth Mayors about it.
