Letters / Youth has to be given a chance

I am not exactly young and spritely as I used to be but my mind is still as sharp as when I was a youngster. I have learned a few things over the years and one of the most important was you have to slip your bairns.

This goes for running the country too. The younger generation have to be given the chance to shape this country for the better before they are as old as me.

I do not envy them as some of the issues, such as climate change, are huge and daunting, but they have to be given that chance. That is why I will be voting for Tom Wills on 6 May.
