With their realistic view of universities, housing and the economy, it is the Conservatives, not Labour, who are the real party of the youngby Charlotte Gill / July 20, 2017 / Leave a comment
Since June’s election, Conservatives have been hounded for their inability to connect with young voters. This, far from reflecting CCHQ’s indifference to millennials, demonstrates a certain hopelessness at Snapchat (and marketing generally). Labour has been far more superior, in this regard, no doubt benefitting from having so many baby-faced members—and therefore a greater pool of savvy individuals to choose from for campaigner manager roles.
Unfortunately for the Conservatives, bad campaigns have convinced the public that the party hates young people; a belief which has only been compounded as Jeremy Corbyn goes around pledging free education to all. Such promises are all too tempting at a time when many are feeling, rightly, fed up of a relentless, miserable economic situation. But millennials must not be fooled by these cheap offers; the truth is that the Conservatives do want to help them out, and have—in fact—produced some of the most realistic, supportive policies around. It’s time it were acknowledged so.
