If you're a young person aged 16 or 17 in this country, the government doesn't think you're worth as much as everyone else.
They'll take your taxes, but not let you have a say in how they are spent. They'll make sure you abide by the law, but not let you influence what it says.
Unless something is done, politicians will continue to ignore the needs and concerns of the generation of young people who will inherit this country. It shouldn't be too much to ask to be treated with the same respect as everyone else.
The Lib Dems believe you should have the same rights and responsibilities whether you are 16, 25 or 60. If you support our campaign, you will be supporting the right of all young people to be given the same respect. So if you find yourself out of work, you will be entitled to the same unemployment and housing benefit as everyone else.
