Working class and youth see UK democracy ‘rigged in favor of the powerful’

Young and working class Britons feel disenfranchised and less inclined to vote than the affluent and should therefore be legally forced to do so as part of a democratic reboot, a think tank claims.

The new study, ‘Political inequality: Why British democracy must be reformed and revitalized,’ was carried out by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR).

Its findings suggest the decline in voting by the less well-off and young is damaging democracy, with politicians playing only to those already inclined to get involved.
