    Make him Prime Minister! He was the best speaker on the programme. They should have him on the panel.

    Which one? There were 2. One looked to be a year 8 maybe 9. The other had been or was at University.
    Neither had a 'political voice'. I would be wary of that as in my experience the young parrot the views of those around them.....

    They were both very eloquent and impressive. I'm double their age and wish I had half their confidences to speak in public. I'm even rubbish when I have to do a KS1 assembly.

    Yes, ridiculous are some of the things which children are taught to believe by alleged experts and which they recite from social media.

    Doesn't take away that they are both obviously talented public speakers. And with maturity they will form their own opinions.

    Perhaps, but I expect they had prepared what they would say in the first instance. The lad in the striped shirt, for example, was less fluent with his second question. It was a good question, when he got around to it.
