General election 2017: MPs vote in favour of 8 June poll by margin of 509 – politics live

19 Apr

There is a proven track record over two elections and two referendums that debates reach huge audiences including a lot of young people who don’t watch conventional political coverage in great numbers.

We think it is very much in their interest that peak time debates go ahead. In 2010 and 2015 the number of young and first time voters going to the polls was up on previous elections.

We believe there was a relationship between that and the audience the debates pulled in. It helps engagement with hard to reach audiences.
