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?
Errr, no. Why is everything labeled fake news these days?

It is impossible to judge the youth vote issue without comparative data from previous elections. The increase of the youth vote does not necessarily mean that they are the biggest chunk of Labour voters, but simply that the percentage of younger voters has increased. While the data above does not allow final conclusions, the age brackets could indeed suggest that the group of voters younger than 35 is relatively large.
