Discussing Politics in School and Beyond

Hello!

Two posts in 48 hours – guess I’m feeling inspired!

It’s just a short post, but I imagine that a lot of schools and workplaces (in the UK, and further afield), and any other places where people congregate, will be concerned about the outcome of the UK’s General Election, and I just wanted to write a little post on it.

I sincerely hope that people do not abuse each other for whichever way somebody they know voted. In terms of school pupils and sixth form/college students, those under the age of 18 may feel frustrated if the party they would have voted for, if they could, do not win, and even young children may worry about the result, and what effect it will have, too. They may also worry about what others will say about whichever way their older, eligible family members voted for.

Ideally, people (across ages) should be able to have conversations with each other about the result of the General Election, without worry about potential repercussions in their relationships if they differ in opinion. For surely it’s an opportunity to learn about other points of view?
