JENS: The point is politicians don't really care what the public think.
Peter: I don't believe that. Surely they've got to be concerned.
Jens: That was delicious.
Daphne: Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Maria: It was wonderful. The puddings in England are really good.
Daphne: Do you think so? I suppose we do tend to have a bit of a sweet tooth. Now, what about some coffee? Maria?
Maria: That would be nice. Thank you.
Daphne: And for you, Jens?
Jens: Yes, please. Do you have decaffeinated?
Daphne: I think we've got some somewhere. Peter?
Pete: Just normal for me. Can I give you a hand?
Daphne: No, thanks, I can manage fine.
Peter: So, what were you saying about politicians, Jens?
Jens: I think a lot of young people aren't really interested in politics.
Peter: I don't think that's true. What do you think, Maria?
Maria: I think you're wrong, Jens. A lot of my friends in Spain are very involved in local politics.
MARIA: Yes. OK, they may be fed up with politicians, but this doesn't mean they don't do something about it.
JENS: I think that's quite rare. A lot of young people don't even bother to vote.
MARIA: I think that's a great pity. For me, it's a sign of a big problem when people don't think it's worth voting.
Daphne: I agree with Maria. Everybody is far too apathetic these days. But at least we have a democracy in this household!
