With Labour 54% ahead of the Tories among young voters, what can ‘Tory Momentum’ do?

“Grind to a crushing halt” seems the logical answer.

The latest YouGov survey puts Labour a staggering 54% ahead of the Conservative Party among 18 to 24 year olds.

Yet, instead of thinking that maybe it was their decisions to massively hike tuition fees , scrap housing benefits for 18-21 year olds, cut the Education Maintenance Allowance and reduce funding for youth mental health services, they believe hearts and minds can be won with “memes and funny images”.

Not that I’m complaining. I can’t wait for the Activate ball at next month’s conference, when the turns will include stand-up from Theresa May (riffing on all the wheat fields she ran through), Michael Gove as his own ventriloquist dummy, Katie Hopkins sawing an asylum-seeker in half, and a cast of chinless wonders, champagne flutes in hand, pogoing to The Jam.

And me thinking, like Paul Weller did when David Cameron named Eton Rifles as his favourite tune: “Which bit of that don’t you get?”

    They’re becoming a sort of very unpleasant joke and a farce.

    Tory’s can run and hide, that’s what they can do. But why do those who rely on benefits and tax credits vote Tory? They must have a full bucket of screws loose.
