The manipulative flattery of the youth vote is demeaning to young people and bad for politics
Bristow, J. 2017. The manipulative flattery of the youth vote is demeaning to young people and bad for politics. LSE British Politics and Policy.
There is currently much debate around the age divisions that marked the EU referendum and the 2017 general election. It’s time politicians started treating young people as voters, not as a stage army for particular causes. In their turn, young voters need to appreciate the importance of engaging with the democratic process, not simply turn up to vote and expect to be patted on the head.
