Thanks for that, it's pretty illuminating, as it doesn't support the "youth vote" theory that's being bandied around in the media at all. More "fake news" perhaps?
I don't altogether buy the "youth vote" bit - except perhaps in University towns [just before the end of the Summer Term] Canterbury a good example; University of Kent quite Leftie/Snowflake/Corbynista.

But here in Teeteringshire, the average age of the population is 27 (younger than the National Average which I think is 39)and our Tory member was returned (for the 6th time) with a 16 000 majority!

Discuss!
