Three young Exmouth eurosceptics joined the Nigel Farage Show last week.

Harry Potter, Jonty Symonds and Lewis Rawlinson, all under 17, joined the UKIP leader at Tiverton Hotel.

They are all members of the growing Young Independence, the youth wing of the political party UKIP.

Chairman of UKIP East Devon John Kelly said: “Much like the Young Conservatives and Young Labour, Young Independence members have a significant role to play in the party, and are involved in policy making that affect youths and expanding party policy in elections.

“The appearance of younger members at the show could be the early signs of a new generation of eurosceptism.”

He said that their presence at the evening breaks the stereotypical view of UKIP members and supporters, showing that all ages are interested in the policies that UKIP bring to the UK political scene.
