1,000,000 under age of 25 have registered to vote since snap election called by May

More than a million people under the age of 25 applied for a vote in the general election in the five weeks after the snap poll was called. With the Corbyn free goodies bag and many of the youth against Brexit one wonders again whether Theresa May’s political gamble will backfire. The total number of UK parliamentary electors in December 2016 was 45,766,000, an increase of 2.3%, around 1 million, from December 2015. The gap of 12.2% would still still seem comfortable enough and the tragic Manchester terrorist suicide bombing will shift focus away from May’s muddled manifesto. This race maybe much closer than markets are betting especially as UKIP, The Greens and the LibDems slide into the abyss.
