Here’s a graph showing the proportion of young voters who care about particular issues, as reported by Channel 4 News.
It’s looking bad for the Coalition parties, isn’t it?
Look at the most important items – the cost of living, affordable housing, unemployment, the NHS and income inequality – all problems that have worsened due to Coalition policies.
Look at the least important – transport, the EU, immigration – topics that the Coalition try to push in our faces all the time.
Is this why the current government has moved to ensure fewer young people register to vote, by changing the rules so that colleges can no longer automatically register their students, acting as ‘heads of households’?
