It’s a warming feeling to know millennials are an increasingly politically aware generation, however, this recent survey may reveal a dark side to the veneer of #wokeness.

In a recent call out conducted by Jet2Holidays, 77% of British kids believe Ed Sheeran would make a better Prime Minister than Theresa May. That’s right, most under-16 year old’s believe the man responsible for ‘Galway Girl’ would be best suited to oversee Brexit negotiations and should take the reigns on all law, order, and leadership. The poll also included grime superstar Stormzy and music mogul Simon Coward to potentially take over the controversial Prime Minister, but it seems like the kids can’t get enough of Ed’s good guy, overly nostalgic persona.

Ed has had quite the one-in-a-million career so far, first making his mark as a busker and eventually dominating the charts worldwide so with his signature luck we wouldn’t put it past him to enter government.

Who knows, plenty of figures in entertainment have gone on to forge successful political careers and if there’s anyone who the crux of the human condition, conveying emotion and compassion constantly, it’s none other than Ed Sheeran.
