Any Stupid Questions about... Elections?
Ever feel like you missed something important when it comes to the news? A fact, a detail, or an event that it feels like everyone else knows about, and now you'd look like a moron if you asked someone to explain? Well, here's a podcast that will ask those questions so you don't have to.
This week Danielle Ward gets elections explained to her by Lewis Baston, a political journalist and author formerly of the Electoral Reform Society. Danielle is joined by comedy writers Sarah Morgan (Wilsons Save The World, The Fear) and Joel Morris (Philomena Cunk, The Ladybird Books For Grownups).
Questions asked and answered include:
- What happens if Theresa May never calls another election?
- How can we get young people interested in voting without making polling booth selfies legal?
- Should we lower the minimum age for voting? And should we introduce a maximum age for voting?
- AV Vs PR: whoever wins, will we lose?
....so if you've sort of been guessing the answers based on a gut feeling, why not listen and find out for sure? And then subscribe to stay equally informed about other issues, as we get around to them.
All our guests are on Twitter, so go and say hello - @gralefrit, @sarahlmorgan and @lewis_baston, and Danielle is @captainward. The show itself now has a Twitter account: @AnyStupidQs.
