Politics Uncensored brings a new, younger perspective on UK politics from unfiltered voices

Press Release ·

With General Election campaigning in full swing, young people feel more disenfranchised in politics than ever. Speaking to this, the turnout at the 2019 General Election amongst 18–24-year-olds was just 47%, compared to 74% of over-65s. Politics Uncensored, hosted by Ali Milani on FUBAR Radio, the premier talk radio station for Gen Z and Millennials, offers a platform for young people to discuss the issues that matter to them. The show gives a voice to those usually silenced by mass media, aiming to challenge the perception of a disillusioned youth by speaking to the campaigners and politicians trying to make a difference in Westminster and beyond. Duncan Smith, CEO of FUBAR Radio, discusses how the show aims to reignite interest in politics amongst young people.

With guests including Yaz Ashmawi - the protestor representing “People Demand Democracy” who gained notoriety for pouring glitter over Sir Keir Starmer at the Labour Conference in October 2023 - Politics Uncensored often provides a platform to those who aren’t fairly represented across legacy media to discuss the biggest issues in UK politics. The show also interviews some of the biggest names in politics, such as former Green Party leader and MEP Caroline Lucas and former Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, to discuss the prominent issues affecting young people in the UK, rather than issues that matter solely to politicians.

Politics Uncensored is hosted by the political commentator, former parliamentary candidate and the national chair of the Labour Muslim Network, Ali Milani, and is broadcast live every Thursday from 5-6pm on the FUBAR Radio app and online.

Duncan Smith, CEO of FUBAR Radio, comments: “Like other shows on FUBAR Radio, Politics Uncensored engages with a younger generation to create content that resonates with them. In the run up to the General Election, Politics Uncensored is the only show that is connecting with young voters and provides a platform for young voices to be heard. It’s current status as a national broadcaster without OFCOM governance means that it can broadcast unchallenged views, which reflects a lot of online content that a younger demographic seeks out on social media.

“The average age of those on protests for BLM, Climate Change, Violence Against Women, War in Gaza, Insulate Britain, Just Stop Oil, was just 24. Yet few, if any legacy media outlets carry these voices. Is it any wonder that young voters go to social media to discover news about these important issues. This is where FUBAR Radio comes in. FUBAR Radio not only embraces the 18 to 34 demographic that leads these conversations, it picks up on content that is born on social media, but then turns up the volume on the issues that really matter to them.”
