Looking back on my days as a 16 year old that had signed up to serve my country and pay it's tax, I think I was more interested in trying to do more of what my hormones demanded than applying any logical thought to the political scenery.
In fact as an example of how teens can be swayed, I, coming from a poor working class, council house background would have considered the Labour Party as it was to be my best representative. Cue a certain M. Thatcher coming along and giving us all a massive pay rise and making us all see her as the leader of a party best suited for us.
Fast forward to today, a couple of Tik Tok clips and the promise of free stuff might be enough to sway the younger voter.
