Ukip leader Nigel Farage has been grilled by young would-be voters at this week’s Leaders Live debate.
Nigel Farage is the latest, and perhaps most controversial, of the major UK party leaders to take part in the question-and-answer sessions with young people, which are the brainwave of youth democracy movement Bite the Ballot, with backing by the i and ITV News.
Last week’s debate saw Green Party leader Natalie Bennett lay out her party’s plans on issues important to younger people, including mental issues, the cost of education, the environment and how representative Government is.
Conservative Party leader David Cameron, Nick Clegg of the Liberal Democrats and the Labour leader Ed Miliband have also all agreed to take the hot seat in upcoming events.
Each leader will face both a studio audience and a much bigger crowd online.
Watch the debate with Nigel Farage here:
While the leaders can select three topics for discussion, a forth “wildcard” subject will be chosen by online viewers.
Farage chose the EU, democracy and immigration as his main topics, with the web community throwing in questions on the environment and privacy on the internet.Reuse content
