This week, the 17-year-old is taking on the politicians who hope we are all too busy taking selfies to pay attention to what is really going on with a ‘kill list’ of leaders (and a few famous faces too).
In a rallying call to young voters like herself, she says: “I turned 18 on the 15th of April. That means I can vote in next month’s elections and so can 3.3 million of you. But you know what? I’m not going to tell you what to do.
“People have been telling you what to do all your lives. They think you’re a self-obsessed, selfie-stick waving generation. They’ve counted on that. They’ve kicked your future in the teeth and hoped you wouldn’t notice.”
Williams used her recent "Absolutely Lawless” interview with Dazed magazine to warn the political establishment that this generation is not as clueless as they might hope.
“People think we’re fucking stupid and we don’t know anything about anything,” she said. “It’s really degrading. I get a lot of adults who are like, ‘You don’t know s**t,’ and it’s like, ‘You don’t know s**t. You have no idea what it’s like to be 17 years old.’”
