The recent Conservative General Election victory was a shock for so many, not least to the pollsters who had consistently shown Labour and the Conservatives neck and neck right up until polling day.

However, not every section of society gave its backing to David Cameron. In this election 44% of 18-25s backed Labour (up from 31% in 2010) and just 27% voted Conservative (down from 30%).

Meanwhile Labour edged ahead in the 25-34 category 36% to 33%. These figures are in contrast to the over 65s of whom 47% voted for the Tories compared to just 23% for Labour.

So if the Conservatives, as the statistics suggest, have a mandate based on support from the older generations, what does this mean for the under 30s? 

This Saturday the Young Fabians will be holding an exciting lunchtime session at the Fabian Summer Conference discussing: What does a Tory majority mean for young Britain?

We'll be hosting some excellent speakers including 

  • Suzy Stride, Former Labour PPC for Harlow, Essex

  • Binita Mehta, Conservative Group Leader, Watford Council

  • Dr Martin Edobor, Young Fabians Executive Vice Chair (Chair)

Sign up below for the Fabian Society Summer conference and keep an eye out for further details.
