Hyer's Highlights: Youth Turnout

What went wrong for the Conservatives?

Was it the poor campaign, with May’s enclosed approach under fire in particular for bottling it in crucial moments by not turning up to debates or connecting with the public? The un-cheery and depressing manifesto, the social care policy punishing their core voting bloc of the elderly, or its u-turns?


Did May lean too far to right, focusing on UKIP voters and not engaging with the 48% who wanted Remain? Did the terrorist attacks play a part, unveiling the truth about her drastic police cuts whilst in the Home Office?

Benji's Election Special: Interview with Luke King

Benji Hyer interviewed Leave voter Luke King who admits that calling the election so soon after triggering Article 50 was a foolish mistake by Theresa May, and Brexit cannot go ahead until there is cross-party consensus on the issue.

Benji's Election Special: Interview with Emma Yeomans

Few expected Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party to do so well.

Starting the campaign 20 percentage points behind the Conservatives, Labour finished just 2% behind, astonishing the nation.

Corbyn is unlikely to lead a government in coming months, but Labour supporters are optimistic for the future of the Labour party led by Jezza and the opposition which they will provide.


Benji Hyer interviews Labour Party member and 'London Student' news editor Emma Yeomans who was delighted at the outcome, praising Corbyn for engaging the electorate, particularly younger voters.
