So just 2 years after the last general election, here we go again and the UK is off to the polls in mid-December.
Already, with Brexit unresolved, this election seems set to be one of the most bitter and divisive political events in the UK’s recent history since, well, the last bitter and divisive political event. At least half the country will be feeling pretty miserable by Christmas.
On the upside, at least people will get a chance to have a say by voting and to that end we were delighted to asked to shoot a short film by Jed Falby to encourage young people to register to vote.
There has been a surge in the numbers of people registering to vote over the last two days. However, today the Guardian reported that “Willie Sullivan, a senior director at the Electoral Reform Society, said 9.4 million people were still missing from the electoral roll”. That’s an awful lot of potential voters.
