Britain elects youngest MP in 300 years


New MP Mhairi Black is now the youngest elected politician in Britain.

The last holder of the record died 300 years ago.

Christopher Monck, 2nd Duke of Albemarle, was 13 when he was elected as an MP in Devon in 1667.Speaking after her victory Ms Black said: “Whatever you’

re views are on Scotland’s future, I will seek to represent you to the best of my ability.”

She has unseated one of Labour’s big names, the former shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander, bringing an end to 70 years of Labour rule in the area.

Newsbeat met Ms Black in Paisley before her election victory.

There have been a lot of words used to describe her in the last few weeks: fresh-faced, impressive, articulate and a firebrand.

She certainly seems to be all those things but she’s also a keen musician.

Ms Black is also being seen as part of the political hurricane that seems to have swept through Scotland in the last few years.

“The Scottish referendum changed everything for me. Once it came about, we thought this is a real chance to kind of change things,” she said.
