EU Referendum: What Students Really Think

6 July 2016

Thank you to everyone who tuned into our riveting panel debate last week, hosted by our founder and ITV Political Editor, Robert Peston.

If you missed it you can re-watch it here to see some of the spirited but insightful conversation between panellists.

Taking student questions from the floor, it was an exciting debate with a range of views on what this means for young people. Importantly, it was also a glimpse into what is on the minds of students all over the country, exemplified by the brilliant questions and comments on social media.

We were sorry not to get to more of the social media questions, so we thought we’d take a moment to highlight some excellent questions and comments on the topics covered.


Young people and involvement in democracy:


The future of British politics:


Impact on the economy and employment opportunities:


Relationship with the rest of Europe:


The future of Europe:


The role of the media/press:




We couldn’t possibly highlight all the brilliant tweets and questions that were sent in but thank you to everyone who got involved.
