Determined future

July 28, 2016

The response from students to Brexit echoes my experience (“Three-quarters of students ‘angry about Brexit’”, 24 July). The banner held by the students in the article’s picture that reads “You stole our future from us” strikes a significant chord among younger people because they do indeed feel as though their future has been determined by an unrepresentative older voice within the UK; for it is they who are going to have to manage the aftermath of this administration’s inept experimentation with the political process. My question to them is: how are they going to correct this perceived injustice?
