Hi readers,

As two people who don’t really like watching the news, we haven’t been able to miss that the country will be voting to stay in or leave Europe in June.

When it comes to news we mainly rely on friends and family as we find watching or reading the news difficult to follow. It’s also mostly negative so that can make us feel a bit depressed.

But this EU referendum is hard to miss. It’s everywhere and lots of people are talking about it. However, it doesn’t make much sense to us and knowing which way to vote is hard to know.

One way to help our understanding is watching the Last Leg. Adam Hills and his co-presenters Josh and Alex break politics down, so it makes more sense to us. The way they explained the EU situation was liking Europe to the boy band Take That. Robbie (England) thinks he wants to leave, but can’t decide, so has to weigh up the pros and cons.

A friend also told us why the EU was set up, to avoid another terrible war like World War Two. Isn’t that a good thing? Is it still important today? The more we talk to people, the more we realise that many others don’t know what’s best for the country - if we should stay or go. It makes us feel better that we aren’t the only ones who can’t fathom out what to do!

We would love to see more information about important subjects like the EU presented in an easy to understand, unbiased and if possible, entertaining, way. It might be an important subject but why can’t it also be fun? At the very worst, we might all get more engaged and make a better informed decision on voting day!
